Kenneth Bae urges U.S. to help him

Kenneth Bae, a U.S. citizen being held in North Korea, made a statement Monday saying he had committed a "serious crime" against North Korea, which does "not abuse human rights," according to China's state-run news agency Xinhua, which has a presence in Pyongyang.

He urged the United States to cooperate with North Korea to secure his release, Xinhua said.

Any statement made by Bae in captivity would be sanctioned by the North Korean government, whose widespread human rights abuses are known to the world.

    Just in case the message was lost in the politics. Christian missionaries are responsible for linguistic, cultural, and religious pollution and GENOCIDE all over the world. The work of Spanish missionaries in destroying the libraries, languages, and culture of the New World should never be forgotten. The time for converting the heathens is over. Take a good long look at christian fundamentalism and it becomes apparent that the other side of the coin is radical fundamentalist Islam. To save your soul we must convert you. These ideas are pre-renaissance and medieval. They have no place in the modern world. I have yet to see evidence that Mr. Bae was seeking to topple north korea. There is however clear evidence that Mr. Bae was engaged in deliberate cultural and theological pollution and that if he had his way cultural and theological genocide would have resulted as they did in so many other nations where the conversion of "heathens" led to the loss of indigenous language, culture, and religion. The missionary work of Mr. Bae and others like him is disgraceful and a throwback to the dark ages with no place in the modern world. I hope for his sake that Mr. Bae is freed from north korea and allowed to return to the US where hopefully, he will grow into being a citizen who understands that liberty means allowing others to see things differently as long as agreement can be reached.

    Liberty means allowing others to see things differently. Agreement is not necessary. In a free society we can disagree.
