Today is Iranian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s 841st day in prison. He’s waiting to be hanged.
For being a Christian.
In a country whose constitution guarantees religious freedom. Go figure.
According to a central European news agency, human rights activists in Iran have reported that, on December 30th, the government offered Nadarkhani release in return for a public statement that Mohammed was “a messenger sent by God.” Nadarkhani declined the deal, saying that the statement would be tantamount to repudiating his faith in Christ.
Now the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is reporting that the Chief Justice of the Gilan Provincial Court is again pressuring Nadarkhani to recant his faith.
