Iran’s such a Scaaaary Eeeeevil Place that Christians can openly worship there. Not only that, but they celebrate Christmas there, driving around Christmas-themed art cars just like some of us do here. They used to be able to celebrate Christmas openly in Iraq, too, but that was back before Bush invaded the country.

Go to Photo Activists for Peace (h/t Newshoggers) and check out the pictures of Christmas in Iran — and of Iranian women, living lives freer by far than those of women in post-invasion Iraq or Saudi Arabia. These are photos that you will never, ever see on America’s nightly TV news programs, not when our networks are obeying the neocons’ orders to dehumanize all Iranians so we won’t feel so bad when Bush’s airplanes incinerate them from above.
