Bush Urged to Meet Religious Prisoners at Beijing Olympics

As the human rights pressure continues to mount on China in the run up to the 2008 Olympics, The Christian Post reports that the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom has urged US President George W. Bush to meet with people detained for practicing their religion when he attends the Games.

The USCIRF head encouraged Bush to visit an unregistered Protestant church and to press for the immediate and unconditional release of imprisoned unregistered Protestant leaders and Roman Catholic bishops and priests.

One has to wonder how Bush, an avowed born-again Christian, will respond the request, given earlier statements that he doesn’t plan to bring politics to the event.
