Two years ago, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was arrested by the Iranian government on charges of protesting "the government's decision to force all children, including his own Christian children, to read the Quran." Later, the charges were changed to apostasy and evangelism to Muslims. Last year, Pastor Nadarkhani was sentenced to death for refusing to renounce his Christian faith. This year, the Supreme Court of Iran upheld the ruling.
A final written verdict is expected within a matter of days.
Where is the international protest to this crime?
Yesterday, Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham, said it well:
A man is sentenced to be killed for the 'crime' of a sincere belief in Jesus Christ – a sentence in clear violation of international law. So where is the international outrage? We, as U.S. citizens, must join our voices to continue to press world leaders to take action.Contact your Congressional Representative here and your Senator here.
