The Good Book isn’t clean enough for Hong Kong.
Residents of the city are calling for an “indecent” label for the Bible, saying the text contains passages that are too gory for young eyes, Reuters reports.
At least 838 complaints had been registered Wednesday with the city’s Television and Entertainment Licensing authority after an anonymous Web site, truthbible.net, said the Bible “made one tremble” with its sexual and violent content, including rape and incest, the news agency reports.
The Chinese city has been debating the merits of indecency since a recent sex column published in the Chinese University’s “Student Press” magazine asked readers about their violent sexual fantasies.
