Temple charity may have funded son’s studies

Government and Party officials in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, are investigating the head of the city’s religious affairs bureau over allegations that a Taoist temple used donated money to pay for his son’s studies in the United States.

The investigation comes after a user on Sina Weibo posted a screen shot of the Mingsheng Temple website on Tuesday showing the details of how the Mingsheng Foundation, a charity funded by the income of the Taoist temple on Lishan Mountain, spent its money in 2013.

The temple’s income mainly comes from ticket sales and donations from followers.
