Christians arrested in Saudi Arabia for being Christian while breathing

From the Christian Post:

Forty foreign Christians were arrested for proselytizing after police raided a clandestine church in Saudi Arabia's suburban Riyadh, reports stated last week. ...

Convictions could result in harsh prison sentences, followed by deportation, AP reported.

With a legal system based on Islamic law (Shari'a), the Saudi Arabian Government does not provide legal protection for freedom of religion, and such protection does not exist in practice. Islam is the official religion, and the law requires that all citizens be Muslims. The Government prohibits the public practice of non-Muslim religions.

And these guys are supposed to be our allies?!?

Oooh, please....they didn't run into problems because they were "breathing"...they ran into problems because they won't respect others beliefs, showing clearly, that they aren't tolerant to the diversity of thought. Typical.

You're like PETA, you say such outrageously laughable things that one has to wonder if you aren't doing it just as a joke.

Hey, you're entitled to your opinion. So why don't you tell me what's so "outrageous" about it, and then we'll go from there....that is, as long as you can stay on the subject for more than 10 seconds.
