There is no freedom of religion or thought under Islam
When asked to “repent” by the judges, Youcef stated, “Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied , “To the religion of your ancestors, Islam.” To which he replied, “I cannot.”
… Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani to the Muslim court
Iran can always count on the support of Barbados at the United Nations
“After all its public support over the years for Iran’s evil acts, how can Barbados now criticize the Islamic despots for more of the same?”
Youcef Nadarkhani was born to Muslim parents in Iran, but he never practiced or adopted the Muslim faith. At 19 years old he became a Christian, and later he became a Christian pastor.
That makes him apostate under Islam, and subject to death according to the Koran. Pastor Nadarkhani might well be already executed by the time you read this, or the Iranian barbarians might have ‘annulled’ the sentence due to worldwide pressure in this one case.
The annulment of one death sentence doesn’t change reality though, and the reality is this…
This persecution and trampling of human rights happens all the time in Muslim majority countries around the world. Whether killed by the state or by wild mobs of Muslims – Christians and other infidels are murdered daily by Muslims seeking to impose their ideology, social values and legal system upon the world.
Where is the outcry from so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims over the ongoing murders of non-Muslims to impose Islam? Where was the outcry from vast numbers of ‘moderate’ Muslims when Christian schoolgirls were beheaded as Ramadan trophies in Indonesia and more recently in the Philippines? When hundreds of Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria? Where is the horror of ‘moderate’ Muslims that 100,000 Copt Christians have fled Egypt since “Egyptian Spring”?
Where is the outrage when Muslim mobs burn Christian churches, Buddhist temples and Jewish synagogues throughout the world and Muslim governments deny freedom of religion?
Where is the diplomatic and community outrage in Barbados?
Barbados has a shameful voting record at the United Nations when it comes to human rights. We actually make a habit of siding with evil at the UN. We don’t want to offend any country that might toss a few coins our way.
Barbados loves Iran and we don’t care if they hang 15 year old girls for having sex outside of marriage, hang teenagers for gay sex, or imprison, torture and kill non-Muslims for their religion or stone women to death for adultery. We “abstained” from a UN vote citing Iran for human rights abuses, torture, discrimination and violence against women and then voted to protect Iran from UN sanctions.
After all its public support over the years for Iran’s evil acts, how can Barbados now criticize the Islamic despots for more of the same?
