A useful DPRK neologism

Or so one might think, as Pyongyang has a Korean Council of Religionists, chaired by Jang Jae On. Given that the DPRK is de facto atheist, one doubts that JJO is possessed of 'excessive or affected religious zeal'. The next time interfaith dialogue is undertaken in these parts, I look forward to the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Chief Rabbi describing themselves as religionists in this exciting new DPRK sense.

And what does JJO have to say for him or herself? "The death of Patriarch Alexei II is a great loss for the Russian Orthodox Church and people". And the immortality of the deceased is being prayed for.

Elsewhere, having presumably considered Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, the Emperor Menelik at Adwa and Mengistu Haile Mariam, the chair of the Addis Ababa Youth Association of Ethiopia reckons Kim Il Song to have been "[an] outstanding strategist and [the] greatest-ever commander".

Meanwhile, they have been packing them in at the Havana Ritzy due to its "week of Korean film show", including such edge of the seat offerings as 'The Flower Girl', 'Wolmi Island' and the star attraction, 'Order No. 027".
