Christianity to grow in Iran

As Christians are executed in other nations, I have little doubt that American atheists will ignore this example of religious persecution even though it could theoretically affect Iranian atheists and will instead continue to wax hysterical about imaginary persecutions at the hands of nonexistent Western “dominionists”:

A month ago, the Iranian parliament voted in favour of a draft bill, entitled “Islamic Penal Code”, which would codify the death penalty for any male Iranian who leaves his Islamic faith. Women would get life imprisonment. The majority in favour of the new law was overwhelming: 196 votes for, with just seven against….

“As the number of converts from Islam grows,” notes Ms Papadouris, “apostasy has again become a serious concern for the Iranian government.” In addition to 10,000 Christian converts living in Iran, there are several hundred thousand Baha’is who are deemed apostates.

And yet, no atheists? How very peculiar!
