Some religions more equal than others?

Wang, a Falun Gong follower, was recently arrested for shouting at the president of China. Wang shouted at Hu to stop oppressing the outlawed Chinese Falun Gong movement. Wang, charged by the U.S. attorney's office with harassing, intimidating and threatening a foreign official, now faces a possible sentence of 6 months in prison. I can't help wondering what would have happened if the protester had been a protestant Christian. My own feeling is that if the Chinese president wants to avoid getting his feelings hurt by learning about how Americans feel about government oppression, he should hide with Bush inside the White House.

So now the US has to start imprisoning Chinese dissidents in order to get business from China?
