from barnabasaid:

"Apostasy - or renouncing Islam - is not a crime under Iran's penal code, but the system does make provision for judges to draw on fatwas and Islamic sources where national law is silent. Islamic law states that an adult male apostate should be given the death sentence. Youcef, who was born to Muslim parents, denies apostasy, saying he accepted no religion before becoming a Christian aged 19. Nevertheless, according to Islamic law, the child of Muslim parents is considered a Muslim. The indictment against him states,'He has proven his apostasy by organizing evangelistic meetings and inviting others to Christianity, establishing a house church, baptizing people, expressing his faith to others and denying Islamic values ...'"

... the pastor is quilty of denying intolerance and ignorance.

That's must be embarrassing for IRAN!
Religions belonged to Mighty God not any man or government or country! People should be free to worship Mighty God based on any religion of book!
Free the innocent man

Ceci est totalement inacceptable,surtout s'il ne preche que pour ses fidèles,et qu'il ne pratique pas le prosélitysme,qui est condamnable dans les pays musulmans...
