Iran’s infamous morality church has reportedly turned its attention to a segment of the population that appears distinctly non-Islamic: Christians. The police stopped women outside of churches like the medieval Holy Savior Cathedral in Isfahan to enforce the requirement of veils under the country’s Islamic modesty laws. So Christian women are expected to dress Islamic in church. That captures the lunacy of these Sharia-based legal systems that are so insecure about their values that they must force others to follow them at risk of arrest and imprisonment.
Women wanted to attend the Armenian Orthodox Church had to show that their hijab met Islamic “modesty” standards before entering church.
Iran of course is the loudest objector when Islamic values are insulted in other countries while routinely denying both the freedom of speech and freedom of religion to people within its own country. It is not enough to protect the right to wear the hijab, the Iranians must force non-believers to live Islamically correct lives. It borders on sectarian insecurity that, absent the threat of flogging and execution, people would chose for themselves in how to live and whether to follow the medieval dictates of Sharia law.
