The business of religious worship October 12, 2006

The Chinese take religious obligations quite seriously. But there are not that many shops selling the paraphenalia connected to religious worship.

However, a shop that sells religious objects, joss-sticks and other items tend to do good business at certain times of the year.

The chinese take religious obligations quite seriously because they do not take their political obligations seriously enough. This is where chinese religion becomes little more than a mechanism to cope with the consequences of the resulting social apathy and political docility. Chinese religion, in effect, serves to maintain the status quo that necessitates the continued practice of chinese religion.
