Vietnamese Christian arrested for studying Bible

Jane Fonda's legacy

(...as well as all Vietnam War protestors)

From the Christian Post:

Compass Direct reported on Tuesday that some 30 officials forced their way into the home of imprisoned pastor Nguyen Hong Quang on the evening of Sunday, May 1, as a group of 13 Christians gathered to give thanks to God for Le's release on April 28 after months of intense international advocacy. The group also planned to conduct a quiet prayer session and Bible study.

According to Compass, a “work team” of local officials came to the building at 7:45 p.m. to investigate. When Nguyen’s wife, Le Thi Phu Dung, went out to speak with them, a number of police officers – who had reportedly been gathering outside the residence before the meeting began – pushed their way past her into the house.

“The officers loudly demanded that all religious activity cease and ordered everyone to the ward police station for interrogation, asserting that religious activity was forbidden at the Quang’s address,” Compass reported....

During the raid on Sunday, Le’s father, Le Quang Du, protested that his daughter was in very fragile health and asked that she be interrogated on-site instead. Le reportedly suffered a mental breakdown due to the treatment she had received while in prison.

Despite the protest, officers forcibly escorted her to the station.

We could have made it a free country. Victory was within our grasp, but the peaceniks wanted us out, so now the Vietnamese suffer.
