"Church sources say the number of Christians in Iran has grown from 500 known believers in 1979 to at least 100,000 today.

"President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has reportedly said the government needed to halt the growing movement of house churches across Iran.

"Under Iran's strict interpretation of Islam, "apostasy" -- or the formal renunciation of religion-- is punishable by death."

If they murder this man, this country should start putting radical imams in the USA to death as expounders of terrorism. Hang the devil-lovers!

The religion of tolerance strikes again.

Iranian leaders are obviously insecure in their so called religion that they have to bully non Muslim to show how 'big' Islam is.

why do they want to have protestant church there? Protestant church is rather heretic part of Christianity - many war criminals and genocides were protestants for instance bush or blair or this scotisch criminal-brown. Why not Catholic Church or these oldest Christian Churchs. Besides saying truly in all these protestantic churches rule atheism and amorality in reality.

AUTHORITIES CONCERNED

Rights groups have linked the crackdown to concern among authorities about growing churches and the spread of Christianity among Muslims in the country.

Church sources say the number of Christians in Iran has grown from 500 known believers in 1979 to at least 100,000 today.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has reportedly said the government needed to halt the growing movement of house churches across Iran.

Islamic Iran is collapsing from within.

More Islamic intolerance.

Islam is truly a death cult inspired by hate.

let these pastors and other priesters try to convert into Christianity usa and Europe because there are no religion there. Besides why do they try to ,,convert,, Iranian nation on evangelic ,,Christianity,,. Firstly - it is discret distorsed and some Christ´s teaching is not regarded by protestants. And secondly - Islam was the first and is older religion that protestant Christianity and Thirdly- what did Christianity in understood of European population brought to human kind - it is well known - plundering invasions, crime against humanity, genocide and imperialism. And it is rather quite another thing that Christ tried to teach.

Everyone is free to follow any (or no) religion that they want aren't they.
It appears that you are either an atheist or a preacher of non christianity.
You can find negativity about any major world faith if you care to look.
It is up to an individual if they wish to be converted by what they here - it is only those who are insecure with their own beliefs that are concerned about conversions. If your faith is strong then people will not walk away.
