THE TRUTH - JUSTICE - LOVE
Religion in Viet Nam have been the communist government listed for a dangerous regime, to the party and state Vietnam. Catholic Church in the eyes of the authorities is the most dangerous religion because Religion has many activities-scale and large influence for the parishioners, for your religion domestic and international. One thing in particular is ever, in the eyes of the Communists, the Christian religion is an anti-communist tradition strongest and deepest need to be isolated in a thorough, controlled, limited processing and freeze all activities even those activities that are purely religious nature and, when necessary, should be removed immediately. That is the cause of the crack, against the Catholic Church in recent years.

The government used every trick involves the act of evil repression, harassment, intimidation, assault and eventually arrested and charged with various offenses in the articles about ambiguity in the criminal code as Article 258 (abuse the right of Fredom and Democracy to infringe upon the State benefits) or Article 88 (propaganda against the regime) and even more serious is accused under Article 79 of the criminal charges (conspiracy overthrow the government) ....
Before they decided to wrap themselves in the charges with the ambiguity above, the Vietnam's communist government are often used to suppress the religion that is an act of terrorism threats and spirit of to priests, monks and lay people. To cover up their wrongdoing before domestic and foreign public opinion, governments at all levels is commonly used objects gangsters, thugs to threaten and attack anyone who dared oppose attitudes, uncooperative with the wrong perspective, injustice that governments at all levels often say that the policies of the party and state. Phenomena using thugs to attack Catholics, priests and the monks has increased to alarming levels in recent years has really infuriated people.
