Christians....

Wishful thinking. No one is sent to a re-education camp simply for being Christian.

ANOTHER public schooled trained member of the politburo?

Just like no Jews were killed in the concentration camps?

Unfortunately you are absolutely wrong. People are sent to "re-education" camps all over the world simply because they are Christian. Vietnam is only one country that persecutes believers in Jesus.

I can't vouch for the authenticity of these photos, but I do know personally several Christians who have been sent to these type of camps in Vietnam, Sudan, and Russia.

Im sure you meant to say, that you hope it is not true that people are sent to a re-education camp for simply being a Christian.

Good morning.

"Wishful thinking. No one is sent to a re-education camp simply for being Christian."

Are YOU engaging in wishful thinking or are you being willfully ignorant. Communists send people to the camps for being educated. The Khmer Rouge suffocated people with plastic bags simply because the victims wore glasses. Communists kill and imprison just because they feel like it and atheist communists loathe Christianity.

Perhaps you would like to trade places with the Christian Chinese who were recently arrested? If not then why not spend a few HOURS at this website to keep yourself from looking like the perfect a-hole.

Who taught you to excuse the inhumanity and slavery of Communism?

Why are you trying to excuse the clear torture and imprisonment of Vietnamese in this and earlier posts?

Civilian (nonpolitical/non-religious prisoners are NOT tortured and treated that way in Vietnamese (civil crimes) prisons by uniformed Vietnamese soldiers.

Do you think that the USSR's gold and oil and timber exports from Siberia were done by "employees" or "slaves/political prisoners" who were worked to death by the millions from the 1920's through the 1990's?

My South Vietnamese friend at work, her mother, brothers and sisters, (all just under ten), were sent to the "re-eduation" camp where her father was murdered by the guards. The family were Catholics and were terribly mistreated and nearly starved for two years. By a miracle, they made it to a camp in Thailand and eventually came to the States. They never could bear to think about what they had been through under the North Viet commie "educators."

My friend hardly spoke English when she started as a clerk at our company. Two years later she had her HS degree and then entered college. In far less time than I took, she graduated with honors, went on to get an MBA and helped her family do especially well. She was promoted several times at work and deserved every one.

"Wishful thinking"? So, just for clarification, you support Christians being sent to re-education camps?

In Vietnam they most certainly are if not beaten to death in their meeting place or home.

That sounds like an article of faith on your part...negatives are notoriously difficult to prove.

Oh? I guess you've never heard of persecution in China, North Korea, Vietnam (one of the worst and still is). Of COURSE Christians are sent to be re-educated (tortured and killed is more like it). You need to read Voice of the Martyrs. It's going on still today.

You might want to google on Cardinal Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan.

I'm sorry you think that.

That has to be just about the most willfully ignorant statement I have every read on FR in the last nine years.

You really need to do just a little bit of research to understand how wrong you are.

Christian mores are the antitheses of Communism. If a Christian gives a Communist bureaucrat a wrong look, the Christian is in for a rough ride. This is true in any communist society. Marx thought religion would undermine communism and despised it. The reports I read are worst in the Central Highlands where the Montagnards live. These are the dark skinned indigenous people who once lived all over Vietnam thousands of years ago until the pale yellow skinned invaders took over the lowlands. They drove the Montagnards to the highlands. They persecute them to this day.

“Christians....

Not so..The North Vietnamese decimated the Catholic clergy and closed all the convents and sent the nuns away or to the re-education camps, according to the Vietnamese lady i mentioned above...They were persecuted just because they were Christians/Catholics..They were viewed as subversives.
