I am glad they got out and wish them a safe trip home.  Promoting Christianity in some areas of the world is just too dangerous.

I wonder if it's not possible to say that promoting Christianity in some parts of the world, especially unbidden, might be dangerous because it's not really appropriate? I know that's not going to be a welcome thought in some quarters.

In any case, I too am very glad that they are unharmed, and still strong and ready to do the good work of their lives where it finds welcome and takes root.

Very true, not being welcome is what makes it dangerous. An acquaintance had a son who became a missionary. He and his wife devised a plan to smuggle Bibles into China. The only thing that kept them from a lengthly stay in a Chinese prison was, they were caught before they entered China. If you are not welcome, do not go. Our Govt. would do well to learn that.

I think this will definetly upset some people but in my view the difference between a Christian Missionary and a Radical Muslim is NIL. Both use coercion in one form or another to force their beliefs on those who really don't want them.

I have known more "radical" (?) muslims than Christian missionaries. Several of the few missionaries I knew over the years believed to the point of fanaticism that they HAD to convert the peoples of the world. Personally I am not trying to convert anyone to my religion and expect the same courtesy in return.

If they are welcomed for whatever reason by the host country, let them go.

Hey, that sounds like a marriage. Someone marries you for who you are, and then immediately tries to change you.

The other side of that coin is you marry someone expecting them not to change and they do. Your description is the worst case scenario though
