In Response To: This is apress release or an intelligence report?! (Tony Khoshaba)
For your information, this petition was authored by a group of concerned Assyrian Chaldean Catholics, both from Iraq and Iran. For purpose of further clarification, a group means more than one person, so your criticism against me has no merit.
I also want to point out that the most important element in this petition is not the reference to a sect, but the importance of separation of State and Religion. Our bishops and priests are men of God, and are trained, ordained, and paid a salary to fulfill a very specific spiritual responsibility, away from the politics of our nation.
In these most critical times, we need the undivided attention of our religious leaders in helping us strengthen our spirituality and Christian belief. At the same time, we must urge and allow our political and civic leaders from all fractions, to begin effective and positive communication in order to build better understanding and unity amongst our people.
May God and selfless, faithful, and dedicated soldiers of our nation help us!
