Fascinating article about the reasons Iranians are converting to Catholicism and Lutheranism in Europe. Critics say people are converting to escape deportation to their country of origin while others argue that many of the converts are sincere in their faith. Historically, similar changes have happened where professed Christians converted, at least nominally, to Islam in order to escape paying the jizya tax. There is a name for the heretical form of Islam that retains Christian beliefs and practices but I can’t think of it right now.
