@tracybeanz "Religious Repression: China Detains Dozens of Easter Worshippers" (04/24/11)

1) The "general line of the party" rooted in the principle of democratic centralism, which requires unconditional obedience to top level decisions at all party levels.
@tracybeanz 2) Statements produced by Communist Party leadership are written with great care and exact phrasing in prescribed terminology and with established slogans.

The goal is to provide a means of political and social control.
@tracybeanz 3) Once the Central Committee forms a statement about the party line on a particular issue, it is republished in major newspapers and electronic media. Disagreements with the party line are political crimes and are severely punished.

Hence: Obama, Clinton & Easter worshippers.
