Canadian Missionary Pastor Sentenced to Life in North Korean Labor Camp

The pastor of a large Christian church in Canada has been sentenced to life of "hard labor" in a North Korean prison camp after he "confessed" to trying to overthrow the government. Activists, his family and his church say however, that the "confessions" were coerced, and Canadian officials are attempting to have Rev. Hyeon Soo Lim freed through diplomatic channels.

Lim was arrested last year while making a humanitarian trip to North Korea, where his church runs an orphanage and nursing home. Lim, who serves as the head pastor of Toronto's 3,000-member Light Korean Presbyterian Church, emigrated to Canada from South Korea 30 years ago, and made frequent humanitarian trips to North Korea through the years. In his "confession" Lim told reporters, "The purpose that I traveled about several parts of the country on the pretext of 'aid' was to build a base to overthrow the system of the country and create a religious state, taking advantage of the policies of the U.S. and South Korean authorities." The North Korean government is arguably the most oppressive in the world, and outlaws any religious activity not sanctioned by its dictator.

Media Silent As Muslims Ethnically Cleanse 60,000 Christians In Philippines

When thousands of Muslims become refugees, then you can't get the media to shut up about it for weeks. Thousands of Muslim migrants invading Burma became "refugees" and the media has spent the better part of a year ranting about how evil the Buddhists are.

But when Muslim terrorists attack a Christian city creating tens of thousands of refugees, you couldn't pay the media to cover the story, whether it's in Syria, Egypt or closer to home in the Philippines.

Philippine troops have started to battle their way into coastal villages in the south where Muslim rebels have held scores of residents hostage in a six-day standoff, sparking fierce clashes that have killed 56 people and displaced more than 60,000, officials said Saturday.

College gunman, 26, was 'filled with hate,' lived with his mother and asked if his victims were Christian in rampage that left at least ten dead

The Oregon college gunman who murdered at least nine people has been named as Chris Harper-Mercer - a 26-year-old who celebrated other mass murderers, attended a school for students with 'emotional issues' and said: 'The more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight'.

The killer, whose father is British and said he idolized the IRA and Nazis, on Thursday walked into Umpqua Community College in Roseburg wearing body armor and carrying three handguns and a rifle before shooting dead nine students and wounding nine more.

Witnesses said he had made his victims stand-up and say if they were Christian before telling them: 'Good, you'll see God in a second' and shooting them in the head. If students answered anything other than Christian they were shot in the body.
