This Week's NATIONAL ETIQUETTE AWARD goes to....Vietnam!

World Factbook: Vietnam

Vietnam Tourism

I hereby grant the National Etiquette Award to Vietnam, as it is customary in that country to remove shoes when entering homes.

Today, the former British pop star, Gary Glitter appeared before a court in Vietnam, charged with molesting children. As he has served jail time in Britain for sexual offences against children, it is hard not to doubt his innocence.

Vietnam is still an evil Communist regime. The Yanks fought a war to keep those creeps out. Whether that war was a sensible policy or not, I cannot say.

After North Korea, Saudi Arabia and China, Vietnam is the worst country in the world for its persecution of Christians. Christians in Vietnam suffere dreadfully.

For more information on the persecution of Christians, please visit these sites:

Christians working the harvest in communist countries have a difficult task at hand. Have you read Fox's book of Martyrs? I can't get through it. I read one story and "get all emotional".

I don't much about Vietnam. I do, however, like Vietnamese food!

Thanks for visiting, Sarah.

No, I have not read Foxe's. I have no immediate plans to.

I have not tried Vietnamese food. Is it a bit like Thai food?

God Bless

Lol, you haven't read it, and I have the book at home, yet, you spelled Foxe right, and I didn't. I'm impressed!

Actually, Vietnamese food is more like Chinese, but lighter I find. I even like their deserts. Well, I only tried one. They warm up a banana and pour maple syrup on top. Simple, yet quite good.
