Money, Fast Cars, But No Women

Tom Heneghan of Independent Media TV, an independent media outlet for views and artistic expression which are currently not being represented by the corporate media, reports that Patriarch Emmanuel Delly, the of the Chaldean Catholic Church, Iraq's largest Christian community has denounced American evangelical missionaries.

Delly says American evangelical missionaries attempt to convert poor Muslims by flashing money and smart cars. Many Protestant activists came to Iraq after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and set up what he called "boutiques" to attract converts.

According to Heneghan's report, Delly said the evangelicals were not real missionaries. They attracted poor youths with displays of money and taking them "out riding in cars to have fun."
