Pakistani government: "Jesus Christ" is vulgar, obscene, and harmful

The Vatican news agency Agenzia Fides is reporting that the Pakistani government is banning the phrase "Jesus Christ" from being texted.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has issued an order to all national cell phone service providers that there now exists a listing of 1,600 strictly verboten words and phrases deemed vulgar, obscene, and harmful.

To clarify the rationale for the directive, the PTA stated that the freedom of Pakistanis is "subject to the limitations provided by the law, in the interest of the glory of Islam."
