Christianity was the only way out, says North Korean defector

The first time Joseph Kim heard the words “Christian” and “church”, he had no idea what they meant. He had never seen a church and Christianity was as unfamiliar to him in his famine-ravaged North Korea as Disneyland.

“Kwang Jin”, a friend said to him, using the Korean name by which Kim was then known, “if you ever go to China, the churches will give you money.”

To which Kim replied: “What’s a church? Why would they just give you money?”

“Because they’re Christians,” the friend said.

“What are Christians?” Kim asked.

  • One of the first things asked of North Korean refugees after China has forcibly repatriated them (the dictatorship Trudeau admires) is whether or not they have converted to Christianity.

    ““What are Christians?” Kim asked.”
    At this rate it won’t be long until that question will be asked here.

    oh no. They’ll try to exploit Christian charity just like muhammedans do
