Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I found this in the Blogs,does anyone know if it's true.If so it demonstrates that its not a good idea to go "God-Bothering" where you're not welcome (unless of course you have an invading army to deal with the ungrateful heathen that will not see the light)
     
  2. Missionaries? Missionaries? Talk about sticking your shovel...
     
  3. Yes there were 3 British Missionaries arrested in Iran , on charges of spying.

    In 2002.

    Plenty of missionary work needs to be done in the UK first, surely? I suppose Iran offers greater chances of martyrdom, though. Pakistan is pretty good for this as well - they have been murdering and torturing Christians there for years.

    Well, that's my position on missionaries......
