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?
Think about what you're saying, Lily. Was it a "crime" to be Jewish in Hitler's Germany?
The President of the United States has no control over the laws of another nation. There are Christians in Iran who manage to survive; it's not a crime to be a Christian. Your comprehension of the issue is limited and your comments are based on your usual hysteria rather than actual knowledge of the situation at hand.

Barack Obama has called for the release of an American pastor imprisoned in Iran, reports state.

http://christiannews.net/2013/09/29/obama-cal...

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) outlines that a senior Obama administration official confirmed to reporters that Obama referenced the pastor while speaking on the phone with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani on Friday. The ACLJ has been working for the release of Pastor Saeed Abedini of Idaho, who left his homeland of Iran in 2005 with his wife and children.

“The source stated that President Obama raised Pastor Saeed’s case along with two other Americans directly with the Iranian president,” the Christian legal organization explained.“According to the report, President Obama raised concerns about the imprisonment of Saeed and expressed our country’s interest in seeing the American pastor returned to his family.”

Abedini was arrested last year for allegedly threatening the national security of Iran by planting house churches a decade ago, and for attempting to turn youth in the nation away from Islam and toward Christianity.

He had traveled to Iran to build an orphanage and visit his parents last fall, and was about to return to the states when he was taken into custody. Abedini was then sentenced to eight years in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison, where he has spent the past year.

Sadly political prisoners exist in most dictatorships.
Quiet diplomacy sometimes get them released.

Secret Service - and especially Secret Service who are lead agents such as Bongino to Obama abroad on three different occasions - know more than most.
Think of them as the flies on the wall.
Yes, a servant and body guard to the President of the United States. He has no business speaking against the President or revealing any details that could jeopardize the safety of the President and should have been relieved of his duties immediately when President Obama was elected. Would you want a traitor to be in charge of protecting your life?
He's a dirtbag. And you love dirtbags; just like looking up fake nude photos of the Presidents mother; you're despicable.

How many mammograms would $99 million pay for?

"In addition, federal audits of family planning programs, of which PP gets the lion share, have identified between $88-99 million in overbilling between 1995-2009, according to the Inspector General’s Office at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services."

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.
So Christians don't have to obey the laws of other countries? OK, we'll buy you a ticket to Iran, go for it and die or go to prison for your cause. Why should we pay for your stupidity once you get caught?

Yeah, right. The Iranians took this deal as a green light to continue building nuclear capabilities at full-steam.
Ever heard the saying, "Know your enemy"?
Do you think Iran is going to give up their nuclear program because "their" enemy believes they will?
Like you know sh*t about this.

In this first step, Iran caps its enrichment programs which is easily verified.

You keep lying about this. The President did speak to President Rouhani about this. It was not part of the nuclear talks.

Dennis Rodman will likely get the American out of Korea!! The President will do him a "solid" !!!

President Obama is fulfilling another of his promises; to speak to Iran. The first time in how many years? The new President of Iran seems to be open; it's a first step and a historical one. Also a super accomplishment for John Kerry.

Gubbymint protecting us!?

USDA!!!!

"WASHINGTON, Oct. 27, 1999 U.S. Department of Agriculture Inspector General Roger C. Viadero announced today that 21 individuals, including eight USDA employees, were arrested this morning as the result of a three-year investigation led by USDA's Office of Inspector General."

more...

"The investigation disclosed that the owners of the wholesale markets at the Hunts Point Terminal Market in the Bronx, N.Y., were routinely paying cash bribes to the USDA graders in exchange for a reduction in grade of the produce. The resulting reduction in the grade of the produce -- for example, from U.S. Grade A to U.S. Grade B -- could save the wholesaler a substantial amount of money per load. Consequently, the primary victims in this illegal operation were the American farmers and their families, who lost millions of
dollars."

<quoted text> "290 people are killed by FDA-approved prescription drugs, and that’s the conservative number published by the Journal of the American Medical Association.
As no one seems to believe these numbers are real, I’ll quote the source: The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Vol 284, No 4, July 26th 2000, authored by Dr Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.
That study, which is twelve years old — and drug deaths have risen considerably since then — documents 106,000 deaths per year from the “adverse effects” of FDA-approved prescription medications."
It has little to do with over prescribing Pile.
And being an FDA approved drug does not mean it was prescribed, prescribed correctly, or taken correctly.

Drugs have side effects & risks. The more they are prescribed, the more are subject to these risks. i.e. over prescribing is a factor.

How Wall Street Turned America Into Incarceration Nation
Transforming poorer neighborhoods into desirable real estate for the new elites often requires getting rid of the poor: jail becomes the new home for many.
November 25, 2013 |
The U.S. leads the world in prisoners with 2.27 million in jail and more than 4.8 million on parole. Minorities have been especially hard hit, forming 39.4% of the prison population, with one in three black men expected to serve time during their lifetimes.
How is it that our land, supposedly the beacon of freedom and democracy for the rest of the world, puts so many of its own people into prison?

<quoted text>What part of millions of muslims have been murdered in America's vision of liberation & democracy don't you understand? Millions more forced forced to relocate. You'd have to dig back into biblical times to even the total of muslims slaughtered in the last 13 yrs. You just happened to forget to mention that huh? It's as simple as this. What does the christian country of America have that the muslim nation wants? that's right, nothing! What does the muslim nations have that the christian country of America needs to sustain economic stability? OIL! And before that, it was DIAMONDS!Keep drinking the water!
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.
