Young Christian Pastor Facing Death in Iran

A young Iranian Pastor is facing certain death for blasphemy if he does not denounce Jesus Christ. The American Center for Law  and Justice (ACLJ) is petitioning Americans to get involved in putting pressure on the Iranian officials to change their mind.

Iranian Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been charged, convicted and sentenced to death for apostasy – becoming a Christian. When Iranian officials demanded that he recant his faith in Jesus Christ or die, he responded, “I cannot.” He has been illegally imprisoned and separated from his wife and two boys since 2009. We are fighting to save his life and win his freedom. We need your voice in this fight; please lend us your voice for Pastor Youcef today. ~From AClJ website
