from worthynews:

"The apparent order came after local Christians said last month that Nadarkhani rejected an offer to be released from prison if he publicly acknowledges Islam's prophet Mohammed as 'a messenger sent by God.'

"Iranian authorities reportedly summoned lawyers for Pastor Nadarkhani to his home city of Rasht on December 30, to explain the deal. Local officials indicated they would release the pastor if he agreed to make the statement about Mohammed, Christians with close knowledge about the situation told BosNewsLife at the time.

"Christians said the pastor made clear that making the demanded statement about Muhammed would amount to abandoning his faith in Jesus Christ ..."

"if he, publicly acknowledges Islam's prophet Mohammed as 'a messenger sent by God.'

The quran proves mohammed was sent by satan, how does killing this man prove that mohammed was a messager.... It does not! Instead it inforces the idea that muslims are brain-washed evil individual who must force-feed the adherant to belief the ancient text of an evil pedophilia 7th century ma.

This man was arrested during a protest. An illegal protest. Iran is not a democracy and does not tolerate rebellion or anti-government sentiment. It hasn't been long since many peaceful protestors were killed. He had to know his actions would put him at risk. I wonder, did he want to make himself a target or some kind of a martyr? I believe both the Qur'an and the Bible say to follow the laws of the land. He chose not to, knowing the consequences can be hard there.

We can all have opinions about what a country should have as far as laws are concerned, but we have our own share of moral issues in the U.S. too and should clean our own house first. We recently assassinated a U.S. citizen, without giving him a trial and he wasn't armed. We killed him with a drone. I don't know if he was guilty or not. It doesn't matter. We should have a trial as promised by our own constitution. What I do know is we are criticizing Iran for what they are doing, but at least their guy got a trial. Ours did not. We follow such a double standard.

The pastor wasn't in trouble for leaving Islam. He's in trouble for treason against Iran's state religion. They wouldn't have known he wasn't a Muslim anymore if he hadn't been preaching to Muslims, trying to get them to turn on Islam too. When I became a Muslim, I was told ahead of time to be very sure because becoming an enemy of Islam and working against it after agreeing to follow it was treason. No one has to become a Muslim. If he became one and then decided it was wrong, he could have left it behind. Here in American, he could spend his life running it down. Just not in a country where freedom of speech isn't allowed. It looks to me like he's getting the publicity he wanted. I don't know if he should be pitied or not? I am sad for his family regardless of what he did or didn't do. Men can be such dopes!!

Obama alone is responsible for the murder of the US citizen you speak about.

You rationalizing Irans actions show what a cold hearted bitch some women can be.
