I saw this documentary, Inside North Korea, on the Nat Geo channel recently and I was startled to see how the people of North Korea worship their dictator, Kim Jong Il. They call him the "Dear Leader," and worship him as divine. As I was watching this, I was struck by the similarity between the people's actions and what goes on in some evangelical churches. The narrator, Lisa Ling, says that the devotion to the Dear Leader is because of generations of indoctrination. Why do these people worship Kim Jong Il? Because they have been indoctrinated (brainwashed) to do so. Their devotion to him is their religion. This illustrates again why I think religion is ultimately very dangerous. It causes people to become fanatical. It causes them to do things that otherwise rational people would not do. Watch this short video below beginning at 2:55.
