    They should do the same thing with the FEMA camps here.

    Are we going to tell them to let the people go or else?
    Maybe Obama can learn how to build his camps for all the gun owners.

    It still does not show the evil mosque at Mecca. Or does it?

    In the VOM 2013 Persecuted Church Global Report, I read the following about North Korea:

    “Juche” is their philosophy of self-reliance that centers on worship of the country’s leaders.
    North Korea is the worst perpetrator of persecution against Christians in the world. Possessing a bible or saying the words God or Jesus are offenses punishable by death.

    So, where do they keep the light bulb? It’s not marked.

    If you are interested in learning more, “Escape from North Korea”, by Melanie Kirkpatrick, is a good book about conditions in NK.

    There’s a chapter about the persecution of Christians there, @Unruly.

    Leftist utopia, and dreams from his father.

    MaryfromMarin, thanks I haven’t read that one yet. Amazon has it for $17. I enjoy reading escape stories, and have read several books on persecution and torture in North Korea. I’ll put that one on my list.

    @Unruly–

    Try your local library. That’s where I found the copy I read.

    @MaryfromMarin, our local library is very small. I buy a lot of used books online really cheap.

    That’s too bad, @Unruly. If it weren’t for our library, I’d be a heck of a lot poorer now.

    Does your library do ILL’s (inter-library loans)? Still usually cheaper than buying, unless you know you will read the book more than once–and how would you know that, with a book you’ve never read before? Catch-22.

    MaryfromMarin, you can read part of many books in a preview on the Amazon website, “Escape from North Korea” included.
    I don’t care much for libraries. I have been blessed with some good recommendations from people I trust, and have a pretty good collection of books in my house. I’m in the middle of 3 or 4 books right now, plus the Bible and Torah. But it is hard for me to walk past an escape story without picking it up.

    If you would like a personal account of the unimaginable conditions in North Korea’s prison camps, I would recommend ‘Escape From Camp 14′ by Blaine Harden, as recounted by one of the very few documented escapees of these notorious camps, Shin in Geun, who was born in camp 14.

    It staggers the imagination.

    Unruly, VOM has quite a few books on the horrors of Christian suffering under communism and islam, and as believers we will be ask one day to account for our apathy towards our brothers and sisters who suffer.

    In many persecuted nations, Richard Wurmbrand’s book (founder of VOM) ‘Tortured for Christ’ is used as a survival guide.

    Dialogue has done wonders for their human rights atraucities and their continued uranium enrichment hasn’t it mr POS, I mean Mr. POTUS?

    Maybe their not Labor Camps afdterall and are just LiL Kims Organizing for Action Section 8 housing facilities, complete with 24/7 armed security to keep the riff-raff out.

    Yeah, thats the ticket.

    I gotta C-note that says, Google WON’T highlight the FEMA Re-ejumakayshun camps that Obama is building to house LAW-ABIDING gun owners. :-o

    Come to think of it, why DID the Google Commmies, rat out their North Korean Commie buddies, anyway? :oops:

    This is clearly a result of too little regulation.

    If this causes the NoKos any embarrassment, I may stomp my foot!

    We have a deal – Google self-censors and donates to me.

    @Jack Daniels

    Thanks for the book tip, I’ll check that one out.
    I have Tortured For Christ, and I get the VOM newsletter. They get some of my tithe money because I know I can trust that they will put it to good use.
    :-)
