Iranian church leader Matthias Haghnejad and eight members of the Church of Iran denomination who were on trial with him have each been sentenced to five years in prison following a short trial on 23 September.
Pastor Haghnejad was arrested by members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard after a church service on 10 February 2019, while Shahrouz Eslamdoust, Babak Hosseinzadeh, Behnam Akhlaghi, Mehdi Khatibi, Mohammad Vafadar, Kamal Naamanian, Hossein Kadivar (Elisha) and Khalil Dehghanpour were detained following a series of arrests in Rasht in early 2019.
During a court hearing for the nine men on 24 July Judge Mohammed Moghisheh, who is notorious for miscarriages of justice, attempted to coerce Pastor Haghnejad, Mr Eslamdoust, Mr Hosseinzadeh, Mr Akhlaghi and Mr Khatibi, who were being represented by Mr Moshgani Farahani, into accepting a court-appointed legal representative. The judge suspended...
Jim, all of the white terrorists combined don‚Äôt come anywhere close to killing as many people as black men kill. You poor fella, that just doesn‚Äôt jibe with your liberal narrative, does it? Oh, well‚ÄĒput on your big-boy pants and deal with it, okay?

Even the Trump administration has taken notice, albeit belatedly ‚ÄĒ after House Democrats and nongovernmental experts issued warnings through hearings and statements that also point to a hamstrung federal response.

And what does America have to do with this story anyway. The Lord is building His church, one disciple at a time. Who care where that is? It's simply a matter that we can point you with thanksgiving and rejoicing in the Lord's goodness to people, just like us, who deserve only comndenation.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. ‚ÄĒJohn Adams Facts. Like the one I presented, and the ones posted by Douglas Fir. Read ‚Äėem and weep, Jim. You certainly cannot controvert them.
NCVS-National Crime Victimization Study--shows most inter-racial crime is committed by blacks on whites. Also check out the Crime Prevention Research website for facts you won't find in your local newspaper or TV, though with TV's addiction to photo evidence, it is hard to deny the pictures of 2 black guys in dreadlocks who are the main suspects in the killing of a white, middle-aged firefighter in the Ft Lauderdale area. And the supermarket's surveillance camera showing a black woman robbing 3 of their stores. Just ask yourself...when was the last time I saw a 72-yr old white granny doing any killing or robbing stores?

Julia Manchester wrote: Cato Institute polling director Emily Ekins said on Wednesday that President Trump's supporters who attend church regularly tend to be more liberal than his supporters who do not, citing her research in the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group.
"The more frequently Trump voters attend religious services, so if they go to church each week, they're more supportive of immigration, and they have more favorable attitudes towards African-Americans, Hispanics, Muslims, and Jewish people," Ekins told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "They're more concerned about poverty," she added.

Skewed stats, Jim. Seeing that Muslim terrorism is at a lull in the country, other forms of criminal activity are now *relatively* more prominent. Sounds like a good news story to me, not as you want to pitch it.
A headline like this strikes fear in the heart of many, but delight for Democrats who think that the churches full of right-wingers are the main problem today. Not that it matters, since they 'own' the minds of the children when they go to school, any public library, and then college. Of course, you may ask, why wasn't Martin Luther King Jr arrested for statutory rape when the PBI report shows he was involved in this, and even invited one of his minister friends to join his private party. It's really disgusting that people hold him up when the FBI report shows quite the opposite. I guess it's like how many Indians esteem Mahatma Gandhi, who was a racist who thought black people were terrible. And how many liberals in the US think JFK was a god, and his wife a goddess, when he was no better than MLK with respect to his adulterous behavior.
