North Korea World's Worst Persecutor

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Cao's Blog)

(World Net Daily) Communist North Korea is the world's worst persecutor of Christians, according to an annual ranking by the evangelical mission group Open Doors International...

North Korea, where "Christianity is observed as one of the greatest threats to the regime's power," topped the list for the third straight year.

North Korea seems to be doing an excellent job of demonstrating socialistic tolerance by exterminating all forms of religious expression. It is not too surprising to see Communism leading the way in regards to persecution although North Korea was quickly followed by Saudi Arabia in 2nd place, Vietnam in 3rd, Iran taking the 5th spot, with China and (surprisingly) Afghanistan taking 9th and 10th place respectively.

Open Doors USA President Carl Moeller said the regime, led by dictator Kim Jong Il, tends to arrest not only a suspected dissident but also three generations of his family to root out the "bad" influence.

Despite the persecution it appears that the North Korean Church is growing, although such information is hard to verify given the regimes totalitarian control over the political, economic and philosophical sectors in both the public and private arena's of it's citizen's lives.

Many Christians are already demanding action from President Bush who seems more focused on bringing a unified message towards North Korea via "table talks" (over it's nuclear program) than in addressing the humanitarian issues within the regime. Although a nuclear North Korea is definitely something of concern, her citizens treatment by their own government should take some sort of priority within the talks, even if that means addressing China's own record.
