Human Rights Watch researcher Letta Tayler  just got back from Iraq where she documented tales of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) forcing mass expulsions and murders of Christians and ethnic minorities who are told to convert. Tayler explains the recent edict ISIS issued for Christians in the city of Mosul: 

"ISIS issued an edict around mid-July and it said, "You’ve got three choices: convert, pay us a jihad tax, get out of town—and if you don’t do those, you’ll face the sword."
This was, of course, an absolutely chilling message. It was disseminated throughout the city and on the Internet as well, and at that point most of the Christians had already fled Mosul, but the few remaining families, and we’re still talking several hundred, apparently, just packed up and left. Some left with nothing but the clothes on backs, others piled whatever precious possessions they could into their cars and some of them then found at ISIS checkpoints that they were robbed of those few precious possessions that they had hoped to bring out with them. So it has been an absolutely terrifying part of a broader campaign to “cleanse” … Mosul and surrounding areas, of anyone who does not espouse this strict interpretation of Sharia that ISIS espouses.”

HOWARD FINSTER’S PARADISE GARDEN - SUMMERVILLE, GEORGIA

My journal entries from my visit are a complete mess because in I know in my mind at the time it seemed to me to be a place that perfectly put its pulse on all of what I love about America and much of what is wrong with it;

felt a little like a Djuna Barnes mix tape in that the seemingly different pieces come together slowly until it all makes sense (well for me - I don’t know if that really makes sense);  

a religiosity steeped in a man’s unwavering conviction in his own beliefs informed in some ways by his attitude toward our culture, politics, personalities perhaps.  I’m not sure that’s right.  I still don’t know what to think about it all, other than it was strange and beautiful and how it’s important to take the convictions of others seriously, even if they aren’t in line with my own (or infringe on them).  

Editor’s note: Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden is located at 200 North Lewis Street in Summerville, Georgia. Open Tues-Sat, 11am-5pm; Sun 1-5pm.
