Great news! But 3 years in jail for this is still unjustified...

"He was arrested in 2009 after he lodged a protest with local education officials after learning his child was being forced to read from the Quran, the Muslim holy book, in school.

He was charged with apostasy and convicted in a provincial court -- which sentenced him to death."

The Quran is as holy as Hitler's Mein Kampf.

It would have been better if they had stoned him to death.

Lol! Out of curiosity, I tried Google-Translate of the article (chinese to english). Here's how Google-Translate went wrong from the 1st paragraph:

"...this pastor was forced to become a devout Christian and a model."

the chinese text actually says:

"...this persecuted pastor has become a model for devout christians."

Forgive the harsh words of my previous post Jinn.
But i am a pedophile too, so i obviously feel the fears that pastor must have been through.

It is well that they have released this man. it was not criminal. Itmeans that these Persian leaders are merciful and good people.
Iranians, who are apparently innocent, honest and good people. And if they need convertion to Christianity-they should know legalized Christian religions like Catholicor Orthodox Christianity.
By the way Jesus Christ came to sinners and not to people, who are morally o'k'/ And it would be better if criminals ( hard, disgusting sinners )from Usa, Britain, Issrael and some another countries like Saudi arabia, Turkey would know Holy Bible of Jesus Christ. Christ came to change sinners and not these people, who are good, poor, innocent. They can and should read New Testament, but clearly that they are close to God in their lives.

Anyone not like the pure Iranians if had a chance will be shot on site by the Iranian government. That is there way! Being a white anglo-saxon christian is death by sentence in Iran if you speak up about it! Some country! and it's flawed society and religious cult! What a joke!
