Bush To Attend Church In China, Urge Religious Freedom

From AFP:

US President George W. plans to attend church while in China for the opening of the Olympic Games next month, and will speak about , a top aide said Wednesday.

“When he goes to church on Sunday (August 10) he will make a statement afterwards in which he discusses his view on religious in China,” said national council director of Asian Affairs Dennis Wilder.

“You can deliver the message of freedom without politicizing the events of the game,” Wilder said.

“The president will have diplomatic meetings with the Chinese leadership that are separate from the games. And in those meetings with the Chinese leaders he will of course bring up these issues.”
