Iran To Murder Christian Pastor Unless He Converts to Islam: What Would You Do In His Shoes?
Iran has issued what could be the final execution order for Youcef Nadarkhani, the Christian pastor who was found guilty of renouncing Islam. This bloke is deluded but he doesn't deserve to be killed for it. Here we see fundamentalist faith at its worst. We've seen it with the christian church, we are seeing orthodox judaism reborn in parts of Israel to the horror of the secular population and here we see it at the state level in muslim Iran.
Religious fundamentalism. A toxic perversion of conservative values, devoid of wisdom and shorn of human empathy. I have a question I'd like to pose, however. Apparently the muslims have told the pastor he will be spared if he converts to islam but he refuses to do so. What would you atheists and theists out there do in his position?
