Other news says he is "Church of Iran". Wonder what that is. This article is by a Catholic and is mostly about the intercession of the Virgin.

I like the way the world gets up nowadays and speaks for these individuals. In the past they died very quietly, the news was underground.

Wouldn't be surprised if someone killed him.

In US years ago, two men were being lynched by a mob.They had killed one, then a woman's voice rose above the crowd, calming them, telling them to desist and go home. They let the second man go, he claimed ever afterwards that the Virgin Mary herself had spoken on his behalf.

The combo religions, like Druze and Alawite, are interesting. I suppose the sunni will try to kill them all, as they do to the shia, amadi, etc.

Are you afraid of the truth? You really meant to type Islamreality.

Spending three years in prison and awaiting death for being a Christian is reality.

The Catholics are borrowing quite a bit from the protestants these days, if you turn on EWTN you may think it's the Methodists if you close your eyes.

Thank you sir for ventilating my critical thoughts in good English.
As a small child I was forced to attend daily the neraby Hindu Temple in chennai.
My mother had inculcated her irrational or rational thoughts about prayer.
In those days I had vociferously shouted in my mother-tongue like this.
" Oh God if there is one
Save my soul if I have one"
I will die a rational human without any prayers but let me quote this .
“Your finances haven't exactly been plain sailing recently, so from today you'd be well advised to turn your attention to this area of your life. Follow up any queries and get them sorted out, or go over your accounts with a fine tooth comb so you know exactly where you stand. The coming fortnight is also a good opportunity to apply for a loan or to get some advice about an investment.”

I tried all religion and accompanied all the devotees of all religion.
Religious people should help the local deprived citizens around the corner and not waste their time with pious prayer ceremony.
comrades try to convert me to your religious way of life- if you can

and moments of convenience,
but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.

Salt lake is a city like Köln. The daily struggle is the same.

"Pascal asks the reader to analyze the position of mankind, this crisis of existence and lack of complete understanding. While Mankind can discern a great deal through reason, it is also hopelessly removed from knowing everything through it. He describes Mankind as a finite being trapped within an incomprehensible infinity. Thrust into being from non-being for a brief life only to go out again, with no explanation whatsoever of "Why?" or "What?" or "How?". The finite nature of our being constrains reason with respect to every form of knowledge. Now, assuming that reason alone cannot determine whether or not God exists, the ontological question is reduced to a coin toss. However, making a choice to live as though God exists or does not exist is unavoidable even if the ontological question is inconclusive. In Pascal's assessment, participation in this Wager is not optional because Mankind is already thrust into existence. So even if God's existence cannot be independently confirmed or denied, nevertheless the Wager is necessary and the possible scenarios must be considered and decided upon pragmatically."

it is simply unconscionable by comparison to bet against an eternal life of happiness for the possibility of gaining nothing. The wise decision is to wager that God exists, since "If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing", meaning one can gain eternal life if God exists, but if not, one will be no worse off in death than if one had not believed."

You MUST bet. You may have already bet, but did you do so wisely?

Comrades
I beg to draw your kind attention to read this faulty English.
It is not my intention to challenge any religious beliefs nor it is my intention to hide my views.
.
The word Prayer is not in my dictionary.
I hope those who pray for a better future and life get their DREAMS fulfilled

I am natural not wired with the artificial attempt of the few in the name of Religion .
In Germany there are more pious people who serve a bowl of soup and a lof of bread for the homeless.
In India there are more religious Hindus who do the same.
It is not my way.
As An Atheist I seek some religious , pious, noble people of which-ever nationality and religion to enlighten me.
Why in Köln there are more deprived native Germans become homeless.
Why In India the religious war is perennial.
Which religion is the culprit and which one is the best?
In Köln ( a Christian city with cosmopolitan carnival culture) there are umpteen churches and Cathedral.
During Winter those German born ex-nice tax payers and driven to be branded as homeless are dying without any religious supporters.
Why i see while others ignore this fact.
The same is the case elsewhere
