The Chinese has stepped up its efforts against Christians and Muslims and other religious believers, and according to one officer, they have even instituted a point system and quotas for arrests of religious believers. Each police station is evaluated quarterly. They get points for the number of believers arrested, their faith and for any leadership positions the people they arrest hold. They get the most points for members of the Falun Gong and the Church of the Almighty Gong. A station chief who doesn't meet his quota can be fired.

  5. the Church of the Almighty Gong

    This sounds like a kick-ass religion.

    1. Would a televangelist broadcast for this religion be called…wait for it…”The Gong Show?”

      Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week.

  6. Reverend you reading this one? Admit this is the kind of religion you can get behind.

  7. Confucius say, man who fart in church gets his ass arrested and tortured in jail.

  8. Fairly certain Charles just can’t type and meant to put “Church of the Almighty God”, not gong, as that’s another chinese religion that the authorities hate. It has a kickass official name though, which is “Eastern Lightning”.

  9. They get the most points for members of the Falun Gong and the Church of the Almighty Gong

    Confucius say: “Man who score more points wins Gong Show.”

  10. “War.”
