This doesn't look good...

While scanning through the articles on this morning, I came across this piece from Canada's National Post. Apparently, the Iranian Parliament has passed a law requiring a person's religion to be identified by a badge on their clothes.

Iran's roughly 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on the front of their clothes, while Christians would wear red badges and Zoroastrians would be forced to wear blue cloth.

The law isn't official yet but it sure reminds me of something another country tried about sixty-five years ago and I hope no one forgets how that turned out.

UPDATE: This article says the above article I quoted is BS.
