Vatican vetos 'dot god' domain

A top-level domain (TLD), sometimes referred to as a top-level domain name, is the last part of an Internet domain name, that is, the group of letters that follow the final dot of any domain name. [source] Recently, the controlling body of TLD, ICANN was considering the adding of TLD such as
.catholic, .anglican, .orthodox, .hindu, .islam, 
.muslim, .buddhist

The Vatican said they don't like the idea of some registrar or other group being given control of the TLD of a particular religious tradition, with ICANN forced to determine who gets to be the gatekeeper for each particular set of beliefs.

What do you think?
