(Christian Today) A man who defected from North Korea has recounted how the regime teaches children that Christianity is an evil American religion.
In an interview with World Watch Monitor, the defector, who goes by the pseudonym John Choi, spoke about his experiences as a child back in North Korea.
Every year, Choi would receive a large pack of sweets from his parents to celebrate the birthdays of North Korea's Kim dynasty founder, Kim Il-sung, and his son and successor, Kim Jong-il. But before unpacking the sweets, Choi would have to bow down to the pictures of Kim Il-sung and his son.

Choi recounted how the history class in primary school taught children about the "great deeds" of Kim Il-sung, and how they were taught that Christianity was evil.
