. . . but with just a slight smile. From a USA Today blog:

Activists want the Hong Kong government to classify the Bible as "indecent" because of its graphic content, Reuters says.

The Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority has received 838 complaints about the holy book's violent and sexual content, according to the wire service.

The campaign comes after the agency declared "indecent" a student newspaper's sex columns on incest and bestiality.

"If the Bible is similarly classified as 'indecent' by authorities, only those over 18 could buy the holy book and it would need to be sealed in a wrapper with a statutory warning notice," Reuters reports.

The agency says it is "still undecided on whether the Bible had violated Hong Kong's obscene and indecent articles laws."
