Three years ago, I reported on the Iranian parliament that voted in favor of a draft bill which would codify the death penalty for any male Iranian who leaves his Islamic faith. (Women would get life imprisonment.) The pastor (on the left) was executed by hanging. His son (on the right) awaits the same fate. If you have a hard time identifying with this, let me put it this way: if this was a new law in our country, I could be put in prison for life & worse, Raul could be killed. Today, keep in mind those who don't have freedom of religion--and give God some thanks that we live in country where we do.
