"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Inside North Korea Donald Sensing has some intense pictures and stories of persecution of Christians from within North Korea. It's fairly disturbing, and poignant reminder that, while Christians lived as well as anyone in Iraq (that is to say, not very well at all), North Korea is decidedly anti-Christian. The people there deserve regime change just as much as the people of Iraq--but I fear that they have also been more indoctrinated than the people of Iraq, more cut off from the world. I don't know if they would welcome freedom as the Iraqis did, and that would make things decidedly more difficult. I hope we try, though. For our sake, and for theirs.
