Mandaeans in Detroit

In order to manage the fact that there are so few priests in the States to baptize Mandaeans, the community has been holding baptism camps and conventions in cities with large Mandaean populations.

What a great solution. The next convention will be held in Detroit, Michigan (where I was born) in the first week of July. For more information, go to the Mandaean Union website HERE <<<

I am happy that the Mandeans have found a home in Detroit but I am sad that they and other religious minorities like the Yezidis, Assyrians, and Chaldeans, and Alevis have faced such terrible persecution as a result of the American invasion. Which is worse sectarian fascism or its religious equivalent?
