Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani is a Christian pastor in Iran who is facing a death sentence for apostasy, which Iran does not have a law for. The ACLJ was able to confirm at the time of this video that Pastor Yousef was still alive but they stress that action is needed because he could be killed at any time. CBN News, at the time of the video, have said that the death sentence may have been overturned. CSC certainly hopes that Pastor Yousef is still alive. He was given three chances to recant his Christian faith and he did not. The United States does not realize the persecution that Christians face overseas.
