China 'Taking care" of 300 bibles brought in by missionaries
Some Wyoming based Christian missionaries got a taste of China's idea of freedom of religion at airport customs when more than 300 bibles they brought into the country to distribute to both the faithful and non-faithful alike were confiscated.
Well - not according to the Chinese customs official reached for comment by the Associated Press. They're not confiscated, she said. Authorities were "taking care" of them.
The missionaries were not selling the bibles. They only wanted to distribute them. But apparently the only bibles allowed in China are those that are printed on official government printing presses and distributed by officially sanctioned Christian churches.
Now that's what I call freedom.
