Sohrab Ahmari – Former Muslim and Agnostic
Sohrab Ahmari was born into Iran during a politically turbulent time, and his experience of the hypocrisy of the Islamic regime caused him to abandon religion altogether when he was still very young. He moved to the United States, and his view of Western culture, which he had gotten primarily from television, was shattered. He began to question his Marxist principles, and along the way, had a series of providential experiences that led him to believe in a personal God. As his search continued, he found the answers he had been looking for all along in the Catholic Church.
