THE TRUTH - JUSTICE - LOVE
Vietnam's communist government continued to commit acts of trampling freedom of belief of the people rudely and flagrant. While the Government is always claimed that people are entitled to Freedom of Religion or Belief and Religion has always been enacted and protected by National legislation and religious edicts government. But in reality, governments at all levels acted completely contrary to their commitments and from time to time hampering the lawful religious activities of people. Moreover, Vietnam's communist government also used the gangsters, police and military violence to attack the Priests, Religious and lay people causing serious injury and threatening people.
In addition to the violent suppression actions mentioned above, governments at all levels have been used despicable tactics by vicious slander, inciting a split between religious and non-believers, created a hostile destructive solidarity them to their wicked aggression and attacking each other to create a legal reason to authorities suppress religious. It is most serious in recent years, Vietnam's communist government has repeatedly offending behavior Eucharist in some parishes, such as through the vandalized the Cross, and destroyed the St. violated where the solemn worship when the priest is celebrating Mass. This behavior is deeply offensive to faith of people and religious blasphemy, a taboo of the religion is not acceptable.
When does the communist government ever truly cease the repression of freedom of belief of the people as they had committed? Constitution of a country is prepared thoroughly prior to release would not only is the game on paper does not need to make? Where is the law? Where is justice? and the people we are not just the people shape by paper or the land that Vietnam's communist government to shape or how well arranged. Religious faith can not continue to be insulted and freedom of people's beliefs can not continue to be trampled and banned. Millions of people like one, please speak up together and unanimously expressed opposition in a resolute manner, strong and specific to all acts of religious persecution of the communist government of Vietnam today.
