This post may seem a bit off the topic but I do not think that it is. Isis is the Goddess of Maat / Righteousness and Justice. She liberates from oppression. Mary has often been seen as one who liberates from injustice. An important example is the liberating role of Mary in Mexico as the Virgin of Guadeloupe. Religious faith is property centered on political economic and social justice. Now in Iran the people are struggling against the tyranny of a small but powerful theological / political elite. I think that Aset Maryam is on the side of those struggling for liberation. She is not an apolitical Goddess. I am closing this post from another blog which I own which deals primarily with political issues.
Look at this city
At the shaken foundations of palaces,
The height of Tehran’s maple trees,
They call us “dust,” and if so
Let us sully the air for the oppressor
Don’t go, Neda
