I want to be sure that my readers are aware of a recent announcement from the U.S. Department of State. An article about that announcement appears today on the website www.cnn.com. Here are the first two paragraphs in that article:
The State Department condemned Iran's persecution of religious minorities on Friday following the Iranian authorities' detention of Baha'is and Christians in recent months.
Iranian authorities have detained more than 45 Baha'is in the last four months, and as many as 60 Baha'is are imprisoned in Iran on the basis of their religion beliefs, the State Department said.
To read the entire article, go to the website indicated above, click to the "World" section, and then look for the line of blue print that says "Iran criticized for persecution of religious minorities." Click on that line.
