Unbelievable Accomplishments

The other day, an item came into the news. Kissinger (who, against all reason, is still with us; what is he now, a hundred and eighty?) talked to the Official Chinese news agency Xinhua about the "unbelievable accomplishments" of China's commies ver the past 60 years.

Like this do you mean?

Mgr James Lin Xili, bishop of Wenzhou (Zhejiang) died on 4 October at the age of 91. For his faith he spent 16 years in labour camps and in recent years, though ill and immobilised in bed, he was constantly under police surveillance.


It is not yet clear whether his body will be draped in the vestments of a bishop or whether the Church will celebrate the solemn funeral for an ordained priest. Bishop Lin has never been recognized as a bishop by the Religious Affairs Bureau.
