Please sign the petition to help free this American pastor who was visiting his family in Iran and was arrested for just being Christian. After a sham trial they have imprisoned him.

I signed the petition, but does anyone know whether in fact he was evangelizing over there? I feel bad for Pastor Abedini and his family, but I have little sympathy for him if that is the case. Even the Holy Father stopped missionaries from evangelizing in Muslim countries because of the obvious dangers to Priests post 911. I'm sure the State Department has warnings about doing just that as well. Also, signing a petition on a pro Israeli website won't exactly help the good Pastor with Iranian officials. Bottom line: If he deliberately put himself in harm's way, he's on his own. I hope I'm wrong.

He was there visiting family. It is my understanding that he is being tortured and is losing faith.

Cheryl, Pastor Abedini was indeed evangelizing in Iran and not just visiting his family:

For whatever reason he deliberately put himself in harm's way. As far as I can determine, the Catholic Church has wisely avoided evangelizing in predominantly Muslim countries. I know he's not Catholic, but he had to know the risks.

Peter that is what he is being charged with...sharing his Christian faith... since they don't have freedom of religion there....but every thing I've read or heard said he was visiting family. Either way, he needs to be freed and we need to do everything we can for him including prayer and petitions.
