That's absolute rubbish. One can say anything about any subject as long
as one stays within the bounds of ones knowledge. And you still haven't
told me that I am wrong and why.

I doubt it very much. I shiver with fear at the thought of lunatics
misinterpretting texts that basically advocate peace and love, and using
them as an excuse to kill, maim and torture. Simply reading any
religious text will instill no fear in me whatsoever.

I don't know. What if there isn't? Are there any Christians in the
government of Iran?

Your surety of what is natural and what isn't shows your dogmatic
nature. Why not question what you have been taught for a change rather
than repeating it by rote?

Thus demonstrating your racism and immaturity.
