North Korea is irate at its neighbor to the south for its decision to allow Christians to erect a 30-foot Christmas tree roughly two miles form the border, saying it will escalate confrontation and cause a war.
The KCNA news agency, North Koreas state-run media apparatus, described the Christmas tree as an intolerable insult and an act of despicable psychological warfare by South Korea that will fan up the confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north and bring a war disaster.

Oh, the horror!
NK needs to have a giant Santa display, right away to counter.
Kim Jong Un finds it despicable.
Perhaps that why Christianity had so much appeal to Koreans of all Asian peoples.
When I watch a Korean drama about Joseon, I feel right at home.
I even forget they’re Asian.
Can you possibly believe it? These Right-Wing Evangelicals are trying to inject their religion into the holiday?
Sounds like the usual liberal secularist BS.
I have no idea why atheists are so affronted by a (gasp!) Christmas tree.
Dear Leader Kim would be right at home in the ACLU.
Many people don’t realize that South Korea is a majority Christian nation. The only other Christian nation in Asia is the Philippines .
When I went to South Korea, I saw more church construction than I could imagine. And being from Texas, I can imagine a lot of churches. 2 on my street here.
Kind of blows the whistle on the Kim wannabes here at home that demand Christmas be crushed.
Taking the “war on Christmas” a little too literally!
Why should atheists be offended by a Christmas tree when it is a Germanic pagan import. “Oh, Tanenbaum.” Anyone know how tanenbaum translates??
This sounds like liberals here in the US talking!
Tannenbaum in German - Tanne - means a fir and baum is tree.
German poets have praised its evergreen qualities for centuries.
Because it looks so scrumptious to the Norks who can only eat bark?
"Ceterum censeo 0bama esse delendam."

I pray that one day the boil that is North Korea will be lanced.
“Anyone know how tanenbaum translates??”
A tanned bum?
The North Koreans are upset because the love of Christ competes with the worship of the demi-god Dear Leader.
That quite simply cannot be tolerated.
