    U.S. Accepts Iranian Christians for Resettlement


    http://www.crosswalk.com/news/religiontoday/1367256.html


    The United States has approved emergency resettlement for a family of four Iranian Christians left stranded in Turkey since an October deportation order.

    "under the auspices of the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC)..."

    This Catholic organization looks huge!

    The odd thing about this story is:
    "All were baptized in secret by a Protestant church in Tehran a few days before they left Iran."

    Why do this in Iran? Seems like an unnecessary risk.

    Anyway, it's good there are groups and efforts to get this stuff done.
