So much for separation

This is hilarious, or at least it would be if it wasn’t directly related to the historic murder of thousands of religious individuals:

China asserted the communist government’s right to recognize Tibetan Buddhist reincarnations of the lamas that form the backbone of the religion’s clergy. All future incarnations of living Buddhas related to Tibetan Buddhism “must get government approval,” the official Xinhua News Agency said, citing the State Administration for Religious Affairs.

You know what? I don’t care. It’s still funny.
