    This underlines the danger of that government obtaining nuclear weapons.

    So little thread, so much hijack.

    This is one damned courageous man. He knew exactly what would happen to him, and will willing to give his life for his convictions and to make a statement. Let's not turn this into another "bash-Islam, bash-Israel" muckfest. It would demean this fine man's sacrifice.

More reason to not to look at Iran through the eyes of reason. Iran is fully and predictably capable of the worst our species can imagine.

    This is why Israel is so antsy. It's surrounded by Neanderthals.
    I agree with you that it is awful that this pastor has been sentenced to death but I think it is not so much the religion as the idiotic regime that rules in Iran that does things like this.

    As far as that goes I fully agree with you, but I do not agree with regards to Iranians being a inferior people. This is not done by a people, this is done by a very rotten regime. And you in the eyes of Iran they are doing the reasonable thing with bringing this person to death even though I (and any sane person in the world would disagree).

    People should be free to choose whatever religion they want (or choose no religion) without the fear of persecution.

    They have no choice really they can slow them down but it can't be stopped. Iran is in encirclement by the US, and happens to be a relatively developed country that is coming along. They'd be less extreme if they weren't being pinched so damned hard. Too bad its a religious apocalyptic thing on both sides. They at least have the right to not be annihilated.

    DiAnna I think hes damned ignorant. He joined a brand of Christianity that doesn't recognize that Muhammad was a prophet, no **** he was a profit, as was Christ, to ignore that is to be ignorant of history basically. All he had to do was confirm that at least Muhammad was a prophet and nothing else and he would've been fine and not caused suffering to his family and an international spectacle. They would've allowed him to remain a christian, and alive.

    It's harsh and a damned tragedy I'd rather religious persecution didn't happen, but welcome to the middle east. Christian churches and muslim mosques get vacated by force and demolished by Israel regularly and turned into target practice.

    Nothing good in any of it. =\

    I don't know of any brand of Christianity that recognizes Muhammed as a prophet, just as there aren't any religions oustide of Christianity that recognizes Jesus is the Son of God. To force him to declare that Muhammed is a prophet of God, is to force him to renounce his entire faith. You're deflecting by bringing Israel into this. Is Israel set to kill someone if they don't renounce their religion? I like you, MK, but your selective outrage is as ****ing annoying as it is transparent.

    Selective ignorance my balls.
    Some christian think Muslims worship a different god. Last I checked history... that isn't the case.
    They can **** right off too... like a bunch of ignorant hicks.
    They were going to let him live if he confirmed a historical fact, there has been a handful of prophets on earth and it's pretty obvious.
    Confirming that Muhammad was a prophet does not violate Christianity. Islam recognizes Christ respectably.

    FAIR Blog Blog Archive Newsweek and the 'War on Christians'

    A wholly different kind of war is underway--an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm.
    I think Highschool degrees should be required before you're allowed to blog. I apologize if you don't notice the obvious.

    I also mentioned that Israel has demolished christian churches as well, not to mention abused the members of their communities.
    But y'all don't seem to mind this.

    What do you think would happen to gas prices in the event of war with Iran?

    Can't have it both ways, guys.
