Australian Christian Missionary Arrested in North Korea

John Short (shown), an Australian Christian missionary, was questioned at his hotel in North Korea’s capital of Pyongyang on February 16, and then detained by law-enforcement officials. Authorities had questioned him about Christian writings translated into Korean that he had in his possession.

Short’s wife, Karen, learned of her husband’s arrest from a friend who had traveled with Short in a tour group originating in China, and who returned to China on February 18.

In an interview with Reuters, Karen Short said that her husband had been open with North Korean officials about his Christian faith and read his Bible in front of government guides during his first trip there. “He won’t be intimidated by the Communists,” she said. ...

"It is relatively rare that North Korea arrests a foreign national, even rarer when one considers that a company like Nations Tour is hardly unique. The so-called “Business as Mission” movement, which instructs devout Christians to set up companies as vehicles for spiritual outreach, dates back to the 18th century but found new life at the beginning of the 21st. It’s a missionary model that, by definition, assumes a certain amount of risk for those setting out to reach the “unreached.” But the risks haven’t dissuaded the faithful from taking up the cause. Today, there is an extensive, well-financed network of for-profit missions, using shadowy front companies to evangelize in North Korea. Though precise numbers are impossible to pin down, missionary-businesspeople have set up a staggering breadth of enterprises, including tour agencies, bakeries, factories, farms, even schools and orphanages, all in the name of spreading the Good Word."

Considering the source that SA used, I will put up another one, Family: Australian missionary detained in North Korea after carrying in Christian pamphlets.

One has to admire the Christian populations of Australia and South Korea, while much smaller than the professed Christian population of the United States, they seem to send out many missionaries and into difficult areas.

Frontline: Secret State of North Korea (Video) still seems to be on the Internet for viewing, it's quite good, but makes little or mention of Christian activity, being PBS I wonder why?

Ah, I see I ever John Birchite source, had a good article on this incidence, but naturally, had to use it as a propaganda piece to attack a Democratic President. Now, does Wild Billy Clinton deserved to be attacked, well I can think of in many ways he should (Oh, and also Baby-Face Bush), and even perhaps for not sinking the Pueblo when he had the chance, but should this condemnation be in this article, not really.
