No religious discrimination in Iran: Ahmadinejad [Excerpts]
President Mahmud Ahmadinejad said on [November 4] that there is no religious discrimination in Iran and followers of different religions are living in the country peacefully.
Followers of different religions in Iran are living side by side and they share each other’s sorrow and joy, Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with Bishop of Armenian Orthodox Church in Cilici Aram I Keshishian.
The problems of mankind result from atheism, said the president.
Ahmadinejad stated that mankind is frustrated with the situation of the world and is waiting for the savior. Islam and Christianity believe that one day the savior will come and this is the source of unity between the followers of divine religions, he opined.
War, occupation, aggression, discrimination, and poverty must be eradicated in the world, Ahmadinejad stressed. If the religious faithful stay together they can play a constructive role in ending the current crises in the world, he added.
[TBC: Ahmadinejad’s “ecumenism” will be part of the path towards a one-world apostate religious system headed by Antichrist. This is “…him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” (2 Thessalonians:2:9).]
