← After Bibles seized, U.S. group won't leave Chinese airport

I'm not sure this bothers me.... this group is clearly importing books for economic gain. If one of us were to attempt to bring in 300 copies of say, well anything else, without paying import tariffs, we would be subject to the same law, would we not? Perhaps the Chinese should have stuck to applying those laws rather than making special rules for religious materials. Then again, the purpose here is likely to control any influences that could subvert their control over the population.
