NOT SUPPORTING THE BOYCOTT WILL BE A CAMPAIGN ISSUE:

The Bible among objects prohibited at the 2008 Beijing Olympics (CNA, 11/02/07)

Organizers of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing have published a list of “prohibited objects” in the Olympic village where athletes will stay. To the surprise of many, Bibles are among the objects that will not be allowed.

According to the Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, organizers have cited “security reasons” and have prohibited athletes from bearing any kind of religious symbol at Olympic facilities.

Other objects on the list include video cameras and cups.


Given how well Bill understood the value of demonizing China (deservedly), it's hard to believe Hill won't follow suit. Tough for pols to avoid issues where you can score cheap political points and be right morally.

Illegal Chinese cash bought Bill, so why won't it buy Hill?

They have demonized themselves: they are Communists.

I strungly agree that his is boycott material, being contrary to civilized standards of religious freedom.
