Chinese Pastor Jailed for Printing and Distributing Religious Materials

China Aid reports that a handicapped house church pastor has been sentenced to two years in jail and fined $12,500 for “illegal business practices” after he printed and distributed Bibles and other Christian literature free of charge.  Local authorities arrested him on April 28, 2006, and again formally on June 26, 2006, and confiscated his books and printing funds.
