Default Iran Threatens to Bomb Church

Iran: Islamophobes threaten to burn down mosque -- no, wait...


You guessed it. Will the Islamophobia never end? "Iran Threatens Church with Bombing," by Joseph DeCaro for Worthy News, March 30 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)– Another church in Tehran was ordered to cease holding services in Farsi, the Iranian national language, otherwise it could be "bombed". According to Barnabas Aid, ministers from an Iranian interior department dealing with interfaith matters served notice to the Armenian Anglican Church, unofficially threatening that if the order is ignored, the church will be bombed “as happens in Iraq every day”.
This latest threat comes after both Emmanuel Protestant and St. Peter Evangelical churches were ordered to stop holding services in Farsi on Fridays, which falls on the weekend in Iran where Sunday is just another work day.
"It now seems likely that the Islamic authorities have imagined that with this new restriction they will somehow hold back the rapid, and evidently extremely worrying, spread of Christianity amongst the people under their yoke," according to a report by the Farsi Christian News Network.
Iranian security agents have been arresting Christians in a country-wide crackdown since Christmas.
