UPDATE: The "indecent" Bible

Following reports last week that Hong Kong's local censoring body, Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority (TELA), rejected calls to label the Bible "indecent," supporters have launched a website: truthbible.net.

The Chinese website include this warning in English:

Efforts are well under way to bend the Bible to meet the requirements for censorship. Visitors can read or post passages from the Bible under the categories such as slavery, inaccuracies and "destroys families."

Shakespeare is stretching as we speak--no doubt he will be bending to censorship shortly.
