I live in a country where freedom of religion is upheld by our constitution and our culture. Sadly, the same is not so in other places right now. The following recent news article from an Iranian source reminded me of this today. You can read about the ongoing and escalating persecutions of the Baha’is in Iran here and here. If you are reading this, I encourage you to contact your Congressional representatives (or if you live in another country, your corresponding governmental leaders) to ask them to tell the Iranian government to STOP this madness. This is ignorance, fear, and hatred at work. Our world needs peaceful coexistence for people of all faiths, not more hatred and destruction.
Here’s a recent U.S. resolution (H.R.175) about the matter.
