    Meanwhile in Syria

    It seems that Christianity in Iran is ruffling some feathers.

    Not surprising that conversions to Christianity are ruffling feathers; conversion from Islam isn't officially allowed to happen, in Iran or any other territory in the dar al-Islam.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    and some Christians here in America think we face persecution...

    Just because other Christians are persecuted harder somewhere else doesn't mean there are no Christians being persecuted in America. Just ask that woman who got fined into oblivion for not wanting to cater to gay weddings.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
