Bahá'ís rally in Rio de Janeiro

Last weekend Rio de Janeiro held a rally for religious tolerance. This wasn't any old rally, it was a call for action from the Iranian government.

Brazilians, along with the rest of the world, are still asking for the Iranian government to free the 7 Bahá'ís who have been unjustifiably imprisoned for years.

A brilliant concept, organizers stuck 8000 photos of the 7 prisoners to represent the days they have spent in jail. Not only that, the photos were placed in the shape of a circle to represent the world.

Amazingly, Iran thinks we're still in the 1800s and no one is going to notice that they locked away 7 innocent people, "took care" of their two defense lawyers, and do not have a leg to stand on.

Personally, I don't get religious prosecution. I can't even begin to understand why it happens. Well, I obviously understand but I think it's all a bunch of crap. People need to get over themselves. I mean, didn't anyone else's Mother teach them "To each their own"??
