Pig Worships In Front of Temple

On the Fourth day of the Chinese New Year of the Sheep, a pig stole the show in front of a temple in Tatou village, Yongjia Bridge Town, Wenzhou province, clearly doing the gesture of worshiping by kneeling. Onlookers were moved by its gesture, chanting a buddhist mantra for the pig. Onlookers presumed that the pig hoped to gain a human body in the next life, so he or she could obtain the Buddhist teachings.

A video of the pig worshipping, was uploaded by a Chinese blogger the next day and attracted 7.7million viewers in the first 24 hours.

Some people tried to move the pig away, but the pig did not want to leave the temple, and kept kneeling. So monks in the temple came out and conducted a Buddhist ceremony for the pig, praying for a better after-life.

After the monks completed the ceremony for the pig, the pig left.

2 days later, the owner of the pig, Mr Huang alerted the media that it was one of his three pigs that ran away on Sunday morning, He found the three pigs later in the day, and sent them to the abbattoir that evening! He was so surprised and regretted his action after watching the TV news....but was too late. Mr Huang said that he would not have sent it to be killed if he knew what had happened in front of temple.

But some people said that the pig might be better off now as its wish maybe fulfilled.?

This leads to an old news report in China in 1923.

Australia Must Not Ratify Extradition Treaty with China PDF Print E-mail

The Sydney Morning Herald has recently reported that the Australian government is moving to ratify an extradition treaty with China.

This is a travesty by a government willing to cast aside morality and human rights to curry favour with the Chinese regime.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rules with an iron fist and brooks no dissent from its citizens. There is no rule of law or due process - the CCP controls the courts, and politicises the judiciary.

Nothing could more demonstrate the way the Australian government
grovels to Beijing than their recent attempt to reject former Taiwan
Vice President, Annette Lu's, visa application to enter the country to
make a speech, today actually, at the Queensland Taiwan Centre.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) doesn’t like her so the Australian Government
wouldn’t let her in. Thankfully the visa has now been granted. But
the Beijing regime has now more influence...

As awareness of the persecution against Falun Gong advances worldwide, the urgency of taking a stand on the matter cannot be overstated. Eventually, the persecution in China will come to an end, after which point the opportunity to champion the side of right will be no more.

In drawing a sobering parallel, let us remember that during World War II, “President Roosevelt, under pressure from the public, agreed to issue a statement condemning the German government for its genocidal...

The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP’s) political structure fosters political rivalry


Some Western observers feel that Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign is somehow confusing. It seems to them that, in addition to containing the widespread corruption in China, Xi also uses this campaign to purge officials who rival him politically.

That is likely to be the case. The structure of officialdom in China is quite different from that in the U.S. Xi is doing what he...
