Iran? Talk about a place where the thugs run the show. Most mullahs; IF they tried that same kind of stuff here in the Us, they'd be locked up and the key thrown away.

Arguably a better place than Saudi Arabia, truth be told. Back in Europe I worked with Iranians, great guys. (Couldn't drink worth a damn, not that they didn't try.) Never met anyone returning from Saudi with particularly happy recollections.

Prbably a few CD'ers were looking forward to my going there also...
No, the CD'ers are just convinced you're mentally ill.

I guess America has firmly shut it's doors to anyone fleeing LGBTQ persecution from the countries he's cut off.

That's a shame. I was really looking forward to being beheaded.

Whatttttt? That's just anti-muslim hate speech.

Too bad Fred Phelps was a Christian I guess, had he been muslim I guess any refutation of the ideas of killing gays, jews and treating women as chattel could be dismissed as racism.

Too funny.

I knew and like a lot of Iranians in college. They were mostly people who left Iran when the Shah was deposed.

But, seriously, the only Americans who want to go to Iran today are those who are former Iranians.

And while were on the topic, the U.S. has committed FAR more terrorism than Iran ever has. Exactly what countries has Iran invaded and how many civilians have they killed?

That's what I thought. You can thank Bush and his neoconservative handlers for making the U.S. a terrorist nation. Pres. Obama repaired much of that, and Trump is undoing all those gains.
Not really nice people are they?
