China says Bush should "respect religious diversity"

Ok, Hell must have frozen over while I wasn't looking yesterday. China is speaking out about religious tolerance. That's like George Bush trying to explain "intelligence".

Reuters is reporting on remarks from Ye Xiaowen, China's director of the State Bureau of Religious Affairs.
President Bush should scrap his unilateral approach and respect religious diversity in his "war on terror" to resolve troubles in Iraq.
Now those comments would seem quite off-base for a country who does not recognize non-state sponsored religion, ran an ethnic cleansing/redistribution campaign in Tibet and still is doing so other places, and is itself trying to run the Muslims out of the western part of it's country.
