I decided to write this after a fued with a co-worker who argued that one of the reasons she would be attending the protest against the Muslim Community Center near Ground Zero was because " They wouldnt let us go over there and build our churches".

So I thought it was pretty important to educate the ignorant in this Country and others who think this way. Far from what many think, Afghanistan and Iraq are not the only Muslim majority Countries. In fact, there are 47 Countries around the world that practice Islam as their major faith. I am going to give you information about every one of these countries and their "tolerance" for Christians.
