Religious Freedom

An American pastor was sentenced to eight years in jail for preaching the word of God.  Iran makes it illegal to preach Christ, to witness about how Christ has changed your life, to hold a church service or to convert to Christianity.  Radical Islam knows that they are a lie and that Christ is the truth.  So they do everything they can to keep Christ from being preached or believed in the nations they control.
President Bush and President Obama both made a mistake in allowing Iraq and Afghanistan to become Islamic republics after we defeated them in war.  We should have insisted the new government permit freedom of religion.  Freedom of religion is a basic human right and should not be denied by any government.
Iran should immediately release this pastor and all other Christian converts they hold in prison.  President Obama is doing nothing effective to obtain his release.  The main stream media is generally ignoring this issue as well.  Freedom of religion is a basic human right; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
