In Beijing, a police chief has arrested 48 of his relatives. So much for familial exceptions- he sent 25 relatives either to jail , then had others sent for “re-education through labor,” or punished in other ways, a report said. The offenses included such crimes as far between stealing a woman’s handbag to beating local teachers at a primary school while drunk. The police chief says, “In the first few years, I did not dare head back to my hometown to pass the New Year holiday, but now it’s all right. Everyone understands and supports what I was doing at the time.”

Meanwhile, the The American Humanist Association is making efforts in a $40,000 holiday campaign to put out ads on DC buses reading, “Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness’ sake.” The spokesman of the group, Fred Edwords says, “Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of nontheists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion.” Edwords said the purpose isn’t to argue that god does not exist or to change minds about a deity, although he adds, QUOTE “we are trying to plant a seed of rational thought and critical thinking and questioning in people’s minds.” The group defines humanism as “a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism, affirms our responsibility to lead ethical lives of value to self and humanity.” And last month, the British Humanist Association had a similar campaign on London buses with ads saying, “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
On the other hand, religion has its purposes for others, or would- if they didn’t get caught like a New York City man who tried to smuggle a date rape drug into the US by claiming the vessels holding the liquid contained, “holy water.”
