Although the written ordinances of religion and government regulations on the right to religious freedom has been clearly stated in Article 70 of the Constitution of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, but the Vietnamese communist authorities from time to time tried every way to trample, to prevent and control all religious activities of people through the harassment, cause the difficulty and interferes with the Pastoral operation of Religion. Especially for the beliefs of the people living in remote areas of the border provinces and the Central Highlands of Vietnam where many ethnic minority keep belief in Protestants and Catholics.
Before the prospect of religious faith to increase and thrive in the community, especially for the Catholic Church and the Protestant, the religion so long often the Vietnamese communist authorities considered achievement and the traditional "Anti-Communist" the most intense and the oldest and always in strict control, limited to the lowest of all religious activities and Pastoral. Governments at all levels always expressed shy and fearful to thoughts against the government that can be formed and developed extensively, growing in every annual religious activities of the community before the show confidence of people for the dignitaries of the Church and the spiritual leaders of the Religious. Therefore, in recent years, in addition to continuous promulgation of Decree detrimental to religion in all religious activities, government at all levels perform many acts of fraud and the vile tricks with many dignitaries of the Church as used the thugs attacked brutally Father Nguyen Quang Hoa diocese Kon Tum caused serious injury, or libelous to discredit and seek ways to transfer Archbishop Section Ngo Quang Kiet of Hanoi to elsewhere, an act of blatant interference in the internal affairs of religion ....
Decades, since communists took power in both South-North of Vietnam, Religion has always been dominated in every way. Not only that, the atheist communist always propaganda about religion as a type of drug addiction, paranoia and towards the behavior is said to be superstitious, or even contrary to injunctions of God .... In fact, this is just the brazen sophistry way of the Vietnamese communist authorities to cover up their vile sins against the Church and religion, also for living beliefs of the people. We all know, Religion and Religious faith is always direct people to the healthy thoughts and actions better, more holy. Religion is always a dose of tranquilizers to ease the pain and misery of people, of humanity, regardless of creed or religion. Therefore all the wrong perspective and behavior detrimental to the religion and beliefs of people from the communist government of Vietnam or anywhere in the world deserves to be condemned. We are determined to fight against all thoughts and acts hostile to religion whether any purpose.
