from worthynews:

"Khandjani confirmed reports that on Thursday, October 11, seven Christians received suspended five year sentences for 'action against the national security,' after they were already jailed for up to three weeks in Rasht, some six years ago.

"He said he was also concerned about the situation of Christians taken to prisons in recent days.'We know that many have been forced to say they will no longer attend church services in exchange for freedom.'

"There was no immediate response from Iranian officials."

What else is there to say?
Iran's facism speaks for itself.

No wonder Canadian PM Harper kicked out the entire Iranian diplomatic community.

But of course liberals and lefturds here thought he was wrong. Check any Cdn leftwing based website and they think the news out of Iran is all propaganda to slander the wonderful Ahmadenijad.

they should better become Catholic or Orthodox Christians. It wouldn´t be problem for Iranian government.
But many of these evangelical beliefs are sectarian and sectarianity it is danger for existance of country and these grounds of Christianity are distorsed there.

You are picking up this news from a pro-Christian/anti-Islamic web-site, is there any truth to this story? If I were you, I would verify it from other sources before putting it to pen and paper.

Naturally there are no problems there. And Christianity, Masdaism / Zoroastrism are allowed there. It is an antiIranian bs that they tolerate no Christianity. Christianity was there before Islam. Maybe they tolerate no sectarian Christianity and it is not very strange. Sectarianism is danger for every religion and for country.
