You don't have to be a Tibetan Buddhist to know the oppressive regime of Communist China is trying to play God. After all, as a Catholic, I'm well aware of how they name their own bishops in defiance of the Vatican. Everyone knows China is an atheist regime, so why do they bother with religious matters? No, I'm not naive, the world's most tyrannical, institutionalized abuser of human rights seeks the control of every individual - not simply their temporal existence, but their soul as well.
And we as a Nation, support that.
