Developing Reports: Iranian Pastor Aquitted of Apostasy

Details are sketchy, and reports are unconfirmed, but I hope and pray this is true:

Iran: Pastor Nadarkhani released, aquitted of apostasy

CSW has been informed that Yousef Nadarkhani, the Church of Iran pastor  sentenced to death for apostasy, has been released and is at home with his family.

According to reliable sources, during court proceedings that took place today, Pastor Nadarkhani was acquitted of apostasy,  but found guilty of evangelizing Muslims. He was sentenced to three years imprisonment for the latter charge, but released because he had already served this time.

Pastor Nadarkhani was arrested in his home city of Rasht in 2009 soon after questioning the Muslim monopoly of religious instruction for children, which he felt was unconstitutional. He was sentenced to death for apostasy in 2010, a decision that was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2011.  Although the  Iranian penal code did not specify death for apostasy, a constitutional loophole allowed judges to refer to Shari’a law and authoritative fatwas to justify such a sentence. Today the pastor had been expected to face new charges for unspecified crimes, but was instead released.

    Ah yes, the old benevolent muslim. Muslims probably did this to show us they are in reality, good people. This man as well as the little girl in Pakistan are probably not a carrot. The carrot now, the stick later. While I feel sorry for Christians in what are today, muslims lands, I think they only serve to obfuscate the issue. To blur and obscure the primary issue is 1400 years of the same stuff. Sadly, what I se in the west are people who want so bad for muslims and islam to be something different than they are. I’m sure that if we could speak to some of the men who haved been gunned down by friendly muslims in the land that time forgot, astan, I’m sure we would hera that ten minutes before they were ridded with bullets that they were the best of friends. Muslims are Wile E Coyote many of us are the Roadrunner, without brains.

    This is why I consider anyone who is playing the muslim game a threat to civilization. It may be unintentional but that doesn’t make it ok, imo. When it comes to hopin for change, count me out, I don’t believe any of it. Perhaps its all part of Gods plan, I forget, Isn’t there something in the Bible, something about an inevitable clash between good and evil?

    I would love to give western progs all the islam they can take and even more but I’m afraid if I did that, it might somehow get out of hand.
