Youcef Nadarkhani Executed: Christian Pastor Hanged in Iran for Being Christian UPDATE: Maybe

There's a special place in heaven for him and a horrific place in hell reserved for all those responsible.
Youcef Nadarkhani has been executed in Iran. He is the Christian pastor who has been imprisoned and found guilty by the courts in Iran of being a Christian. Now he’s been executed in spite of international appeals to spare his life. He was hanged today.

Youcef Nadarkhani was arrested in 2009 for being a Christian in a muslim country – specifically Iran. The 34-year-old father and husband was charged with refusing to convert to Islam. He was given the opportunity to renounce his Christian religion and refused, resulting is his condemnation and sentence to death by hanging.

There is breaking news that he has been put to death by hanging because of his refusal to renounce his Christian religion and acceptance of islam.
