Unfortunately the Zoroastrians do not accept converts, but I did meet one middle aged lady here in NY who left after the shah fell and she said many people in Iran are interested in Zoroastrianism becaue they feel it’s part of the Persian heritage....the whole New Year celebration Nowruz is very Zoroastrian.

It is a downright shame what the mullahs have done to the Zoroastrian community in Iran. The Zoroastrians don’t convert, but how many can “re-vert” back to Zoroastrianism?
Quite a sizable population I think.
Why on earth should Iran become ANY kind of religious republic?
A better model is India, which manages to continue despite frictions between the dominant religions there -- and I might add that things weren't always so very cozy here in the States either. And a true Iranian republic would probably look much more like the Indian or Israeli model -- lots of parties, continual bickering and shifting alliances.. but working.
(And maybe better than our alleged "two-party" system does today. But that's a rant for another thread.)
