frm barnabasaid:

"Last Christmas, more than 70 Christians were arrested in a crackdown on Iran’s house church movement; security officers raided homes in Tehran and the western city of Mashhad in the early hours of 26 December while the occupants were asleep.

"Many of the Christians were verbally and physically abused before being detained for interrogation. The majority were held for weeks or even months before finally being freed, often after the payment of a large ransom."

I thought Obama was the anti-Christ. Him being a Muslim, I get it now.
