North Korea Executing Christian's?

Human rights groups in South Korea say North Korea has stepped up executions of Christians, some of them in public.

The communist country, the world's most closed society, views religion as a major threat.

Only the founder of the country, Kim Il-sung, and his son, Kim Jong-il, may be worshipped, in mass public displays of fervour.

Despite the persecutions, it is thought up to 30,000 North Koreans may practise Christianity secretly in their homes.

  • That's messed up. It makes me think the end of times really are getting closer. I wish someone would do something about NK, it sounds like he's the 3rd anti-christ, but then again, it could be his son.

  • I know that, Carpy. But...when you combine this with all the other insane things happening all over the world these days. And a President that I personally feel is evil, it makes ya wonder.

    Gee, I wasn't aware we were publicly executing people in the US for their religious beliefs.  LOL  


    How has your right to practice your religion been stifled?  Just curious.
