It is heartening that Communist China which professed aethism and banned all religious activities is allowing Budhism to flourish in the erstwhile Budhist majority country.

It has always been this way, China has always allowed Buddhism, Christian, Catholic even Islamic in the country. Only some evil and strange practice which are none legitimate are forbidden, They poison people's soul! Buddha is welcome in China.

You are what you eat, so goes the maxim. Look at the chinese? They eat worms, snakes, caterpillar, scorpions, ants, millipede, centipedes, maggots, even dead bodies of infants. What do you call them? Human beings? They are just animals talking some strange gibberish even monkeys will be ashamed of. Why do you need a divine soul like Buddha? Even Buddha will be ashamed of his Chinese followers!
