I’ve seen comparisons between regular Google and Google.cn on searches for the Falun Gong cult and Tiananmen Square, but not Jesus Christ—until I came across the Sharon Hughes blog in the United States. According to Sharon, regular Google turns up 168,000 references in the images’ section, versus 10 in Red China.
Remember that religion is, contrary to common belief, ofﬁcially recognized in Red China, according to its own constitution. But it seems the normally soulless Politburo is concerned about someone whom a spirit-less Communist would consider died 2,000 years ago.
Controversial few days here: politics and now religion!
I commented on the topic last week (see here), and my opinion of Google hasn’t changed hugely. But I have had to revise my estimation of the Politburo downwards, as I can’t see the threat of the Church toward its capitalist-leaning members. They always seem to run scared from something.

With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
