    The form of government in Iran will eventually perish.

    An Iranian pastor who has refused to recant his Christian faith now faces execution as early as Wednesday after his sentence was upheld by an Iranian court.

    Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, a 34-year-old man who maintains he has never been a Muslim as an adult, has Islamic ancestry and therefore must recant his faith in Jesus Christ, the 11th branch of Iran's Gilan Provincial Court determined. Iran's supreme court has previously ruled that the trial court determine if Nadarkhani had been a Muslim prior to converting to Christianity.

    The judges, according to the American Center for Law & Justice, demanded that Nadarkhani recant his Christian faith before submission of evidence. Despite the fact that the judgment is against current Iranian and international laws, and is not codified in Iranian penal code, the judge stated that they have to uphold the previous decision of the 27th Branch of the Supreme Court in Qom.

    Sounds like the Salem witch trials over there.
  3. We need to nuke the Iranian terrorist scum off the face of the planet, so that peaceful Christian Iranians can live in peace.

    God bless America if it takes this action. God bless all American troops if they declare a ground war on Iran.

    And God bless Israel, the land of God's chosen people (I am one of them).

    Agreed. Maybe in 300 years they will be fit to join the rest of society...maybe.

    And maybe we'll be burning witches again. History is like that.

    Maybe. But if I had to wager a bet, they will be the ones burning catholics in 300 years. Im not one to fight trends.

    A Child of Christ, and teacher of His word will be in Heaven soon. Those who judged him, and decided to kill him will face miseries that the human mind cannot fathom.

    Those of you who are Christians should take a minute, and say a prayer for this Pastor.
