Please go to ACLJ.org and click on the one that says Petitions and read about this horrible thing that is going on with this guy. He is being tortured daily and is not well. I heard from a friend here in town that he used to be a Muslim but turned Christian and this is much of the reason they are doing this. Call Pastors at your churches about this and sign and please pass on to all. He has a wife and 2 small children. I just copied and pasted this from the site but there is more more to the story.

Save an American Pastor from an Iranian Prison Sentence
43,557 people have joined this cause online
Iran’s radical Islamic regime has sentenced American Pastor Saeed Abedini to eight years’ imprisonment in one of Iran’s most brutal and deadly prisons – simply because of his Christian faith.
This action violates Iran’s own constitution and violates multiple international human rights treaties that Iran has voluntarily and willingly signed.
At the ACLJ, we are launching an international campaign asking the United Nations, European Union, and Council of Europe to mobilize their resources to require Iran to honor its treaties and its constitution.
