Iran Congratulates Christians on Jesus Christ’s Birthday

The Iranian government spokesman has expressed congratulations on the birthday anniversary of Jesus Christ.

Ali Rabiei said on Tuesday, “With pleasure, I’d like to congratulate all Christian around the world, including Christians in Iran, on the anniversary of the birthday of Jesus Christ, who was a harbinger of monotheism, peace, moderation and altruism, and who heralded the salvation of mankind from carnal desires.”

He said Iran is a place where followers of all divine religions live side by side in peace and harmony.

“Throughout its civilizational and Islamic periods, Iran has always been the hub of peaceful coexistence among Muslims, Christians and all monotheists as well as all followers of divine faiths,” Rabiei noted.

“Iran has made a call to the UN for a world free from violence and extremism and reliance on human values the first promoters of which were the great prophets of God,” he said.

  1. I sometimes wonder how many potential Christians have felt repelled from the faith altogether due to the vocal angry-God-condemnation brand of the religion, perhaps which resembles the God of the Quran and Torah?

    Our collective human need for retributive ‘justice’—regardless of Christ (and great spiritual leaders) having emphasized unconditional forgiveness—may be intrinsically linked to the same unfortunate morally-flawed aspect of humankind that enables the most horrible acts of violent cruelty to readily occur on this planet.

    Call me quite unconventional, but what I, a believer in Christ’s unmistakable miracles, find notably missing from scripture is the side of Jesus that (as I personally like to picture him) occasionally enjoyed a belly-shaking laugh over a good, albeit clean, joke with his disciples, rather than always being the stoically serious type of savior.

    I find immense hope in a creator who has a great sense of humor rather than foremost a loose, very bad temper!
