    I don't know about the "inferior people" part. Isn't the pastor Iranian too? How many people would have the courage to hold firm to his faith even where it might mean death? I'm not sure that I would.

    Re: Iran court convicts Christian pastor convert to death

    We talked of this mans unfortunate plight over in the ME forum 6 months ago so i'll just repeat what i said there.

    The sentence is beyond deplorable. All people of all religions deserve the freedom to worship as they believe worldwide, and all people of all religions worldwide need to stand up loudly for this man.

    Please sign the petition and please express your disgust to your representatives.

    Fundamental Islam as interpreted by the Iranian Regime means this type of atrocity is quite common there.

    They are medieval savages, nothing more!

    If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; [Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely KILL him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to DEATH, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt STONE HIM with STONES, that he DIE; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

    Deuteronomy 13:6–10[48]
    If you are willing to admit that your God is barbaric then I guess you could be right... but to be fair on this particular issue there is little Quranic evidence to support the death for apostates ruling, there are many verses that mentions people leaving Islam and how God is not going to forgive them in the afterlife, it even mentions people who keep going back and forth between faith and disbelief without giving them any earthly punishments like it does with other major sins...

    And as someone pointed out this is not unique to Iran, Saudi Arabia just 'pardoned' a man after 17 years of imprisonment because when he was an 18 year old on his way to a mosque he made a joke about Muhammad. I don't see you complaining or asking that the US cut its support be it political or economical with that country..

    Israel would have encountered the same (if not more deadly) opposition if it was forcibly created in a "densely populated" part the U.S., Arab opposition to Zionsm was rational and the thing is, no one at the time be it Zionist leaders or other western powers had any delusion as to what the natives' response is going to be.

    What part of "I don't give a ****" didn't register?

    Oh man....so much fail in this post. I wonder how many times Abu Gharib photos were passed around among Islam websites and the same exact things were stated about Americans.
