What would Iran be like if it were Christian?

I asked myself this question as I strolled the shopping mall in downtown Yerevan today. The answer is: Armenia.

What would be different if Iran were Christian?

  • chicks would be normal. A few skirts, a few jeans, a little cleavage showing on the younger ones, they might look you in the face, however briefly, and they would walk without male escorts.
  • there would be no religious police, and an atmosphere of general toleration of thought
  • there would no requirements for uniformity of religion or excesive modesty of dress; there would even be a few Muslims around, wearing head scarves and jeans
  • higher education would be thought normal for men and women
  • there would be alcoholic drinks and bars in which to drink them
  • hamburgers and pizza would be slightly exotic but also normal
  • There would be opera and theatre, and statues of statesmen and artists in public places.

What would be the same if Iran were Christian?

  • the climate would still be high and dry
  • fruit trees, many of types unknown to northern climes, would be cultivated plentifully
  • There would be wide boulevards, lined with plane trees whose trunks were painted white, and honking cars, driven by impatient drivers
  • The idea of  remaining in your driving lane would be a somewhat elastic concept
  • Men friends would still greet each other with a handshake and one or two kisses on the cheek
  • Commerce would continue unabated.

Anyone who thinks Christianity makes no difference to a culture, and to civilization, needs to go from Armenia to any of its Muslim neighbours, and see and feel and taste the differences.

Armenia has created a huge museum to hold manuscripts and prints they hold essential to their heritage: firmans (decrees) of Persian shahs establishing the tax-exempt status of church lands, gospels, breviaries, commentaries, most of which were saved from deliberate destruction by the Turks in 1915. Three alphabets have been in use: Arabic (for Turkish and Persian), Armenian, and Cyrillic.

This is a people that has suffered for their religion. Their friendliness towards Russia , the only Orthodox power with the ability to harm the Turks or Persians, is only natural.

A very thoughtful quandary Dal – comparing the civility of Christian nations to Islamic ones – a reasoning process which will never concern the vast zombie horde who are obeying their globalist masters and making the final denouncement of Judeo-Christian civilization by embracing 8th century theocratic hegemony.

Meanwhile back at the home of the one true God –

Yes, and curiously I had just this moment read it, and it says, in part:

“Lest the operation be mistaken for one of the many random acts of violence that plague the West, it is essential to leave some kind of evidence or insignia identifying the motive and allegiance to the Khalifah, even if it is something as simple as a note pinned or attached to the victim’s body,” the terror guide adds.

Jihadists are told to plan their attacks in such a way that they “attain a reasonable kill count,” and to bear in mind “the more gruesome the attack, the closer one comes to achieving the desired objective” of inflicting terror”.

The fallacy of that sentiment is that you can only terrorize cucks. Free men, moral men react to demonic violence with righteous retribution. These asshats are really playing with having their sandbox turned to smoldering glass – at least the Russians see it this way – the US is now so corrupt they see Islamic terror and war against it as a protracted business opportunity
