There are Christians throughout the Middle East and other parts of the world who meet in secret knowing they are risking death.
Are they committing a crime too?
Are Christian churches being burnt to the ground in Egypt and children being shot running out of those buildings in Africa justified because Christianity is a crime there too?
Should all Christians in Iran be sent to prison if they get caught just because it's a crime to be a Christian in Iran?

So what are you saying? Christianity should not be tolerated in certain parts of the world because it's against the law?
If Christians obeyed the law in Roman times, they wouldn't have been fed to the lions.
The same with gays. They are shot on sight. The Romans threw the Christians to the lions for sport. Christianity is illegal. That is the law. As much as you may not like it, it is what it is.

Polls generally reflect the mood of the country.

The polls in 2012 weren't wrong when it has been proven Hurricane Sandy blew them away at the last minute.

And Romney remained silent while it did.

Seems appropriate though. A destructive natural storm led to a destructive political one.

Hope you're battening down the hatches.

President Reagan

If that's true, the only difference is Reagan created an opportunity to free the hostages.

Obama missed a golden opportunity that was created for him.

Supposedly, he was on the phone with Iranian officials trying to get the release of the American just months before.

So it shouldn't have come as any surprise if he insisted this be part of the deal to lift sanctions.

So we are to let our citizens rot in these prisons then? And look the other way when Christian churches are burnt to the ground with children inside of them and the ones who escape are shot?

No outrage? Nothing? Just "it's illegal to practice Christianity" so we have to accept it for what it is?

Good thing Christians were so expendable in Roman times to be thought of as sport.

I'm really trying to get your train of thought here, flack, but it eludes me with these kinds of posts.

As long as it's not happening here is a dangerous frame of mind if we turn a blind eye to barbaric evil everywhere else.

Sorry racist, I'm not a hater. You must be thinking of yourself and your fellow zombies/sheep.

Really, we are a minority? Then why are there 30 or so states that have Republican governors?

Does your hate make you ignore that?

Renaming Persia

What’s in a name?
The name Persia is actually a Latin derivation used mainly by Westerners to describe the region roughly equivalent to that of present day Iran.

In truth during the rise and fall of the Persian Empire the land was known to its people as 'Aryanam', which is equated to the current “Iran” in the proto -Iranian language.

During the reign of the Sassanids it became Eran – meaning "land of the Aryans".
Aryan:
Aryan by definition meant anyone speaking any of the Indo-European languages, including that of the Iranians. Unfortunately, with the rise of Hitler in the 1930’s, "Aryan" came to be associated with the Nazi definition: being of Non-Jewish Caucasian descent, especially the blue eyed, blond haired Nordic races that Hitler himself favored and hoped to make a master race.
Iran VS Persia:
In fact, in 1935, Dr Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi Economics minister noted the Aryan origin of the Persians and encouraged the Persian Reza Shah Pahlavi to ask foreign delegates to use the term Iran, "land of Aryans" instead of Persia.
As the New York Times explained at the time, "At the suggestion of the Persian Legation in Berlin, the Tehran government, on the Persian New Year, March 21, 1935, substituted Iran for Persia as the official name of the country.

Defenders of the name change, point to its use by the Greek historians citing that "Aryan" means "noble". Many also felt that calling something or someone Persian was dated and somewhat restrictive.

There was a need to unify the people of this land under one nation, Iran, thus encompassing the other ethnicities, such as the Kurds or Turks, residing in former Persia. In its decision it was influenced by the Nazi revival of interest in the various Aryan races, cradled in ancient Persia. As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs set forth in its memorandum on the subject,'Perse,' the French designation of Persia, connoted the weakness and tottering independence of the country in the nineteenth century, when it was the chessboard of European imperialistic rivalry.

'Iran,' by contrast, conjured up memories of the vigor and splendor of its historic past."
This change, however, evoked much opposition and confusion as Persians felt that the term damaged their cultural heritage and aligned them with pro Nazi sentiment.

Additionally, all too often Iran was confused with their neighboring Arab state of Iraq, so much that during World War II, Winston Churchill called to enforce continuation of the term of Persia when dealing with political documentation. Even today, in an effort to separate themselves, those opposed to the current government in Iran continue to refer to themselves as Persian.

In 1959, the work of Professor Ehsan Yarshater, editor of Encyclopedia Iranica, propagated a move to use Persia and Iran interchangeably which was approved by Mohammad Reza Shah.

The challenge made was to show that anyone has died from "emissions" according to their death certificate. My point was to show that even when someone dies of known Black Lung disease, the death certificate does not list that as the cause of death.
Point being, clueless one, the fact that "emissions" isn't listed as the cause of death on the death certificate, does not change the FACT that thousands have died as the result of coal plant emissions.
Only an idiot would try to claim that emissions from coal plants hasn't been linked to health issues and deaths.
"Coal-fired power plants are the single-largest source of U.S. electricity, providing 37% of the total last year. They also emit a disproportionately large share of greenhouse gases — far more that natural gas counterparts. While they provided 18% of all energy consumed nationwide in 2012, they accounted for 31% of energy-related carbon-dioxide emissions, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration."

Tamerlane, a Muslim leader, instigated large scale massacres of Christians in Mesopotamia, Persia, Asia Minor and Syria in the 14th century AD. This led to retaliation by the Roman Catholic Church and the Crusades.
The goal by radical Muslims is an 'Islamic Caliphate'. It is used in the Qur'an to describe the belief that man's role is as khalifa or viceroy to Allah.
Domination is the ultimate goal of jihadists.
Al-Qaeda revealed its grand plan towards an Islamic caliphate - global domination. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Al-Qaeda in Iraq released a statement explaining the reasons for its terror campaign:
"We are not fighting to chase out the occupier or to save national unity and keep the borders outlined by the infidels intact...We are fighting because it is a religious duty to do it, just as it is a duty to take the Sharia [Islamic law] to the government and create an Islamic state."
Al-Qaeda has called on jihadists to reconquer Spain as part of a broader Muslim caliphate and why Hamas has an eye on Spain.
In the 1990s, the GIA Algerian Armed Islamist Group, well known for its radical positions and the barbaric violence of its operations, announced the restoration of the caliphate and the appointment of a caliph.
"Know your enemy."
Quoting from books written by and with the same european twist that had and has children across the nation believing the Thanks Giving bullshit story! Muslims are not in America trying to trun this country into a muslim empire. THERE ARE'NT MUSLIM ARMED FORCES OCCUPYING AMERICA, instilling their will and ideology on us. Every muslim that broke code and dealt with America as a go to person in the region is now dead and martyred. Like I said, what does America have that the muslim nations want? What does muslim countries have that America wants? Misquoting the QU'RAN won't bolster your argument against commonsense facts!

It seems to me that being an American abroad once held a certain level of security knowing that Uncle Sam would come and get you if anybody messed with an American.
That is now gone and it started with Jimmy Earl Carter when the Iranians made a complete peanut farmer fool out of him. Since then, the situation seems to have deteriorated even further. In fact, kidnapping an American is a great form of insult to America used by terrorist groups around the world. They seem to clearly understand that Uncle Sam is wearing pink nowadays and has become an emasculated eunuch kowtowing to any town drunk that comes along.
the homosexual agenda of the Obama crowd includes acting like sissies with respect to defending American citizens...
