Iranian court upholds apostasy conviction and death sentence for convert from Islam to Christianity - Jihad Watch

Quote:
Just days after Iran released two Americans accused of spying, an Iranian court has upheld the apostasy conviction and execution sentence of Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani.
The 11th branch of Iran’s Gilan Provincial Court has determined that Nadarkhani has Islamic ancestry and therefore must recant his faith in Jesus Christ. Iran’s supreme court had previously ruled that the trial court must determine if Youcef had been a Muslim before converting to Christianity.
It's too bad he wasn't a leftist backpacker who attended UC Berkeley. Then all sorts of celebrities would be clamoring for his release.

Is this even news? Modern Islam is where Catholicism was...about a milenia ago. And moving backwards.

Default and Europe declares its 'outrage'....nothing more

The Sisters of St Joseph used to read us stories of people martyred for their faith way back in Roman times. Hard to imagine that level of cruelty.

A testimony to preserving history that re-enactments of martyrdom are still being performed.

Amazing that the world sets aside their 'outrage' to continue to do business with Iran and other such countries where religious tennants are what we would call secular law.
