Yep. In their version of a constitution, they guarantee freedom of religion for all 24 million citizens. Unless you are Christian, then you are an enemy of the state and will be arrested, tortured, and martyred. The crime: owning a Bible, sharing your Bible, and/or holding a prayer meetng (anywhere). Check out the story on MSNBC.com under world news. Titled "Arrested for Bibles, man dies in N. Korea".

Where did I say if you even talk about it you're "Forcing it on others"? I didn't, so please stop trying to twist my answers to suit whatever notion it is you have already made up in your mind.
It's as simple as respect is a two way street and your rights end where another person's begin, just as theirs end where yours begin. If you feel the need to tell others their beliefs are wrong do not be surprised if they do the same or call you close-minded. That's all protected by our Freedom of Religion and our Freedom of speech. WELCOME TO AMERICA, where EVERYONE deserves EQUAL rights!

You do realize that christians are the majority right? You have not seen christians run out of town or losing a job because people found out you are christian. National news anchors have not made pleas for your neighbors to watch your every move and to report you for abuse because you believe in your god.
I think some people wrongly seem to think disagreeing = hate. That is simply not true. And while your group is a strong majority how do you really expect things to turn as bad for you as they are in North Korea? I think that you are minimizing what your fellow christians are going through over there by saying it is getting that bad over here. A country where in most towns christian churches out number schools and hospitals combined.

That clause also goes on to prevent any prohibition to the free exercise of those religions.
