    North Korea is not an atheist state. Their god (“Dear Leader” Kim Jong-il) is just as valid as any other god (christian, zeus, etc). In fact since their god has descended from heaven it is likely their god will have a larger impact on the world then other gods.

    It’s even stated in this article that Kim Jong-il is “revered as a deity who supposedly descended from heaven” so why would the author call North Korea an atheist state?

    This is a really bad twist of words. “Holy war” and “atheist” are both used incorrectly, especially in an asian context. You’d think a journalist would have a better handle over the english language.

    Are you kidding me? America was founded by deists and Christians who no doubt based many of their decisions around that of their bibles and beliefs. In some ways you could say the belief or lack of belief of a deity whether it be zeus or jesus has affected the world much more than a single maniac. Especially one as insignificant as this one.
