Iran Executing Man for Converting to Christianity

Fox News reports Iran has not yet executed Youcef Nadarkhani yet for the crime of converting Moslems in Iran to Christianity:

The Christian pastor sentenced to death in Iran last week for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity was confirmed alive as of early Sunday, sources close to his attorneys told Fox News.

The American Center for Law and Justice , working hard to educate Americans on this important religious freedom issue, wrote Sunday:

Our sources in Iran have confirmed to the ACLJ that Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is still alive as of earlier today. We still believe that his execution has been ordered, but it is clear that renewed international pressure on Iran for Pastor Youcef’s release is having an impact. It is this immense pressure that continues to keep Pastor Youcef alive.
