Anglican Church head criticizes Occupy Central
(07-08 14:43)

The Archbishop of the Hong Kong Anglican Church Paul Kwong said advocates for democratic movement in the city should stay quiet.
Kwong, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said ''Jesus remained silent in the face of Pilate, like a lamb awaiting slaughter.''
While admitting there are troubles in Hong Kong, Kwong expressed doubts on why people must speak up. He said Hong Kong is never an independence city, and enjoying high level of autonomy.
Kwong also slammed the protestors arrested after the July 1 march. He said the students, who staged a sit-in in Chater Road, complained that they had no food and had to line up for the toilet.
''Why didn't they bring their Filipino helpers along with them to the rally?''
A female caller to RTHK was outraged, saying she will join another church after Kwong's remarks.
