(Worthy News) - The phrase "Almighty God" could get your cell service banned in China, according to a report at Bitter Winter.
A man named Mr. Li said that in the years he worked for China Mobile Online Services Company, the major provider of cell service across all China's provinces except Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, he and 500 others culled the texts of citizens for references to God and sentiments against the Chinese state.
"If one says anything deemed unfavorable to the CCP, he or she will be punished," Li said, adding that "Falun Gong," the religious cult from whose members the Chinese government tends to harvest organs, was also a phrase that could immediately get your service deactivated in the phone company's algorithm.
Chinese President Xi Jinping also banned mentions of Winnie the Poo from the popular Chinese social media app WeChat in 2013 after he was compared to the cartoon character.
