North Korea “Removing All Traces of Christianity”

North Korea’s communist dictatorship is seeking to ‘exterminate’ all Christian believers and institutions.

That’s according to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.

It says the Pyongyang regime under Supreme leader Kim Jong-Un has been constantly carrying out wrongful arrests, torture and executions.

The Commission says it documented violations that are ‘seemingly designed to remove all traces of Christianity’ from the country.

It found North Korea using networks of informants, including some in China.

A few selected workers are allowed to perform approved Christian ceremonies in church buildings.

But like all North Korean citizens, they’re forbidden to live as Christians.

A Commission report says all individual thoughts and acts must follow the teachings of the Kim dynasty.

The nation’s only three leaders have all been from the Kim family since Korea became divided in 1948..
