North Korea

Can the North Korean cult of personality be called a religion? It does demand worship, establishes authority figures, and invokes the supernatural. I've heard some people, mostly religious arguing that atheism leads to moral collapse, that the Kim family and their party are spreading atheism. I think it's accurate to call it a religion. I was wondering if the AAI could do something for North Koreans. Then I remembered that it would probably just get some people sent to concentration camps. See More

"Yes, that wonderful gift of FAITH. That's the thing that you just cannot define. If god didn't give you faith (or didn't heal you) probably you have hidden sin in your life. Faith is the essence of doodly doo. Bet you don't know…"

About Me:
I was raised Mormon and was always pretty devout. I did the missionary thing in Sweden and came home December 2010. I left religion about a year and a half after that and immediately got involved with the Secular Student Alliance chapter at my University. I recently started an internship with Atheist Alliance International
