The christian bible has sparked an obscenity row in Hong Kong, China, After The Television and Entertainments Licensing Authority (Tela), which oversees the publishing industry, said it had received 208 (reports now speculate over 3000) complaints that text within the holy book was indecent.
A TELA spokeswoman said "I can confirm that the complaints were received, The thrust of the complaints was that the Bible was obscene, that different parts of the Bible were offensive to readers". With Hong Kongs strict laws regarding obscenities in literature I'm surprised the bible has lasted this long.
While the TELA spokeswoman declined to comment on which passages the 208 complains were focused speculation has been mounting, And let's face it, We aren't short of obscenities in the bible. maybe she could narrow it down a bit. Were they sexual obscenities? Violent obscenities? My money is on inscest.
