A Peaceful Faith ? Only if the peace is silence or death....

Ok , I know a few Muslims ; and some are devout and very 'peaceful' externally [but God knows what's going on internally ?]; others are not so devout to their religion , but more devoted to their God and neighbour ; and to be honest , are much the better for it...The picture is of the Pope's effigy being burned - where ? Downtown Tehran or Dubai or Basra ? No, London !!

Try out Damian Thompson's blog for more details of the problems with Islam

but in the meantime read this about what happened to a christian convert in Iran.

Man in Iran Lashed for Being Christian

Tehran, Aug 15, 2007 / 10:14 am (CNA).- Iranian authorities lashed a man 34 times after a copy of the Gospels was found in his car, according to an AKI report, filed Aug. 14.

The man, identified as “A. Sh.” on an Iranian website representing Christian converts, was found to be a Muslim convert to Christianity. He was arrested after police searched his car, which had been involved in an accident, and found the book printed in Farsi.

He was detained at police station Number 102 in Tehran for two days where he was lashed and suffered "other humiliations", the site said.

Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism are the only religions allowed in Iran. However, converting from Islam to any of them is prohibited
