Vietnamese officials hang Ho Chi Minh portrait in Catholic chapel

August 17, 2012

Communist officials compelled Catholics in a south-central Vietnamese village to remove the altar, tabernacle, cross, and Marian image from a Catholic chapel. The objects were taken to a lay Catholic leader’s home.

Stating that the chapel would henceforth be used “for village activities, not for worship,” officials placed a portrait of Communist revolutionary Ho Chi Minh (1890-1969) where the cross had been located.
