Guest: Camille Eid
Host: Mark Riedemann
Host Mark Riedemann interviews Camille Eid, journalist, author and observer of Middle East Churches, in Rome, about the Christian community in Iran. Christians make up only 0.2% of the population in a 99% Muslim country in which Islam is the state religion. Christians endure discrimination – and outright persecution – ranging from Modesty Patrols enforcing Islamic dress codes to Parliamentary debates whether the death sentence should be imposed on apostates — Muslims who change their faith.
