Real news. With snark, invective, and lots of links. Guaranteed behaving badly.

Could have been worse. He could have been smuggling Twilight novels or something.
Huckabee isn’t going to like this but jeff is going to be spending some quality time with KJU and his kangaroo court system
An atheist would have something useful, porn mags.
Or a fresh roll of TP.
I think that’s illegal there as well. The difference being, I doubt it would be turned over to the authorities.
What a freakin’ fool.
Hope the superstitious idiot enjoys his stay.
I hope that we do not make any effort to get him back. Evangelizing should be illegal under international law.
Except for that freedom of speech thing.
In my opinion, evangelizing is inciting to riot.
I my opinion, what he did was wrong because he broke the laws of another country. That’s ridiculously stupid. I traveled extensively and always adhered to the laws in whatever country I was in. It’s called respect.
The problem is that he intentional violated the law of another country, regardless of how awful its leadership may be or how stupid the law may seem to us. If a foreign tourist in this country, knowingly and willfully breaks the law they typically go to jail.The larger issue is that folks like him, make it more difficult to get the jailing country to return a citizen when honest mistakes are made.
wrapping a bible in newspaper in nk calls for a defense jeff cant afford in the united states. Lets send him a care package instead Like ben gay after those long hours he will put in at KJU’s labor camps.
True–And the even larger issue is that religious coercion has pretty much made the world the fucked up mess that it is. We’ve got a bad case of “My god’s bigger than your god”. We’d be much better off to throw all the gods on the trash heap of history and grow the hell up.
If the United States banned a book, there would be crowds of look-alike Guy Fawkes masks depositing copies of it hither and yon.
Think of this as a fundraising opportunity for the religious right. Not that that is redundant or anything.
Well, this IS the department of redundancy department…
I’d make a comment about how this is the type of religious intolerance that separates North Korea from the United States.
But then I read the comments.
You’d think that with just about every foreigner visiting that country has the highest risk of never being able to leave it, that people wouldn’t go there. Does not the US warn its citizens about these possibilities?
Listening to the State Department is actually not very high on an Evangelical’s list of reference sites.
Who says to themselves “I could use a nice vacation” and picks North freaking Korea?! A say stupid is as stupid does. Interesting the rest of his group was pissed at him for putting them all in danger, as they should’ve been.
No one, absolutely no one. He chose to commit a deliberate act, in the course of his faith. He knew he could be making a martyr of himself if caught, well he succeeded.
