You Can't Come Back To Life Unless The Government Says It's Okay

Original Story here

China has passed a law making it illegal for Buddhist monks living outside China to seek reincarnation without permission from the government.

Of course, the purpose of this law is to attempt to diminish the influence of the Dalai Lama and Tibet. However, in this case the joke writes itself; one can't help but marvel at the absurdity of this.
