A Great New Chinese Cardinal

The other day, I posted about the new Cardinals Pope Benedict has appointed.

Mad Minerva has a great post about the newly appointed Chinese Cardinal of the Catholic Church. You can read it here.

It turns out that Joseph Zen, who was the Bishop of Hong Kong, is known for speaking out for Hong Kong's freedom and against the anti-religion policies of the Chinese government.

Mad Minerva notes:

Predictably, Beijing has just warned the new Cardinal Zen to stay out of politics. I suggest this reply: warning Beijing that government should stay out of religion!
