    Re: H.R. 5056
    It is important to have diplomatic relations with Iran but the persecution of the Bahá’ís needs to addressed up front and resolved. Iran is practicing segregation or apartheid but unlike most forms of segregation or apartheid the Bahá’ís don’t just have unequal rights they don’t have any rights at all.

    Here is a quote from the attached linked article.

    “While the Baha’i faith, founded on notions of equality and humanitarianism, originated in what would become the Islamic Republic of Iran, members of the religious community have faced persecution since the republic’s establishment under the Islamic constitution of 1979.
    According to the Iranian government, the Baha’i population represents a political sect, not a religious community, and is consequently regarded as apostate. Although the rights of certain minority groups, such as Christians and Zoroastrians, are explicitly protected under the constitution of the Islamic republic, the Baha’i population, estimated by the U.S. Department of State to be approximately 300,000-350,000 of the majority Muslim population, enjoys no rights.
    The unprotected status of the Bahá’ís facilitates discrimination without justification within the Iranian legal system. Courts in Iran have denied Bahá’ís the right of redress or protection against assault, killings, or other forms of persecution. These courts have established that Iranian citizens who kill or injure Bahá’ís are not liable for damages because their victims are “unprotected infidels”

    John Boener said in his address to the Floor on Sunday night said, “Shame on each and every one of you who substitutes your will and your desires above those of your fellow countrymen. Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with Americans.”

    Many will be watching and looking for men/woman who exemplifies: Honesty, Reverence, Hope, Thrift, Humility, Charity, Sincerity, Moderation, Hard Work, Courage, Personal Responsibility, and Gratitude.

    I am ashamed to know that America has such poor leadership such as yourself. To vote for healthcare, against the wishes of you constituents, is wrong and cowardly. Its time you realize that the people run this country, not greedy, backdoor, pork barrel, politicians. You will answer for your actions very soon. Your time is over! You will not be re-elected. Pack your bags and get out of my country!
