Christian pastor Yousef Nadarkhani is free: The West will beat Iran by showing it humanity

by | 9th, September 2012

IN IRAN, Yousef Nadarkhani, the evangelical Protestant Church of Iran pastor sentenced to death for apostasy, is at home with his loved ones. He’s free-ish. Nadarkhani has been acquitted of apostasy. He has, however,been found guilty of evangelising Muslims, a crime that earned him three years chocky. He’s out because he was in prison for so long already, having been arrested in 2009 and sentenced to be killed by the State in 2010.

No word on the matter on Iran’s Press TV. No word on how the enlightened made Nadarkhani an offer: renounce his faith to escape a death sentence. About 0.5 per cent or Iranians are Christian. For the paranoid regime, that’s too many.

In 2009, Nadarkhani challenged the notion that all schools should teach Islam and no other religion. Iran is a State in fear.

Thomas Paine noted  in The Rights of Man, that it was governments’ “sanguinary punishments that corrupt mankind”.

The way to beat Iran’s theocratic nutters is to show it how much the West is better than they are at caring for humanity. Iran’s youth can’s tolerate these old vicious tosspots for that much longer…
