Iran remains one of the world's top executioners, having put to death at least 203 prisoners since the start of this year alone, according to the Oslo-based group Iran Human Rights.

Yes, just a peaceful human rights respecting country here.

@theFu In reality yes, in today's world those who do right are punished and those who do wrong is rewarded, this is why crime is rising like the temperature on the hottest day of the year. In other words the truth hurts!!

So, saying the truth gets you killed in Iran.

While I respect people's right to believe in supernatural all-merciful all-punishing overlords, it's when their beliefs infringe on other people's freedoms that I have a problem.

Not content with enforcing their views on everyone else through current abortion and book bans, American Christians may take inspiration from Iran to try to make blasphemy illegal too.

Tucker Carlson, Trump, Hannity, Bill O’Reilly as “good Christians” will undoubtedly lead the charge.
