Are there any other sites we could use which would be less biased in how
they define what religions?  I imagine some might be seriously offended
by considering Buddhism a cult, and in general OLPC shouldn't find
itself in the position of endorsing one religion over another.  Choosing
the immediate expediency of a convenient site over the mission of OLPC
could very well cost OLPC all kinds of support.  Do we really want to
open ourselves to charges of being underhanded Christian missionaries?
I imagine there might be some countries which are already challenging
for OLPC to work in, and this could make it significantly harder in
certain conditions.
