Though sources confirm North Korea has eased or lifted a number of restrictions -- such as bans on Western foods -- since Kim Jong Un succeeded his father, Kim Jong Il, there is no evidence of any improvement in the condition of the persecuted church there, WND.com reports. "We have not heard any reports of improvement for Christians in the country and have no reason to believe anything has changed," said Ryan Morgan, an analyst with International Christian Concern Asia

"The regime still has up to 70,000 Christians locked away in virtual concentration camps." Morgan added that a Christian believer and three generations of his or her family can still go to prison for life just for owning a Bible. "We're hoping and praying this changes soon, but we haven't seen any sign of it yet," he said.

Believers in North Korea continue to tread softly because of the nation's history of persecution as well as the message from the new dictator that "he is in control" and "will do anything to keep hold of power," according to an Open Doors USA source. Open Doors lists North Korea No. 1 on its list of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world.

So why aren't right wing Christians speaking out about the fact Trump is ignoring this? North Korea's only recognized "religion" is Juche ideology.

Despite the religious features of Juche, it is a highly atheistic ideology that discourages the practice of mainstream religions. This draws from Juche's Marxist−Leninist origins. North Korea is officially an atheist state, much like the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin. Those familiar with brainwashing would argue Juche is more cultthan religion, fitting cult expert and psychologist Dr. Steven Hassan's BITE (Behaviour, Information, Thought, Emotion) model of mind control.[SUP][88]

The Christian right sold their souls. They showed in 2016 that EVERYTHING they've said they've stood for has been a lie.

For what? I never understood what they thought they would get from him. I mean how desperate for meaningless recognition can an entire group of people be?

Edit - now that I think about it maybe the allure was to have a president who embraces their tendency to be hypocrites, because he is one.
