Christian Persecution; Pastor Saeed Abedini Remains Imprisoned. Obama Does Nothing.
Pastor Saeed Abidini is an American citizen wrongfully imprisoned in Iran. He is being tortured for his belief in Christ our Lord. This particular incident is not alone in the world, but it is unique in that it has been highly publicized over the last months. It even got the President’s attention as evidenced by John Kerry’s comment that he and the Obama administration...
“condemn Iran's continued violation of the universal right of freedom of religion and call on the Iranian authorities to respect Mr. Abedini's human rights and release him.”
What is he doing exactly?

According to this he's eating well, doing some cool sounding site seeing, going to museums, getting to see the Dead Sea Scrolls, and lots of "working" lunches and dinners. He's got the time. It's not that far.
Oh, and by the way...
Have you stopped to think about just how much we, the American taxpayer, are shelling out for all those cool site seeing trips and scopes on the Dead Sea Scrolls? Food for thought.
At the right place at the right time.
How fortuitous for this poor imprisoned man that the leader of our nation is in his neck of the woods and cares. Or does he? President Obama is in the Middle East right now. He’s been heckled in Israel and even had time to plant a tree, but what has he done to free this Christian, American citizen? Not a damn thing. Why not? For the same reason the Pied Piper President doesn't do anything to fix the state of the nation, because he doesn't want to.
Has he ever once done what he said?
It was all over the news.
A mere few weeks ago there was all kinds of hoopla going on in the media about 80 of our elected officials stepping up and actually penning a letter. It was given to John Kerry presumably for the State Department to present to the United Nations on Pastor Abedini's behalf. That must have been so strenuous. Regardless, the 80 in question at least did something. Over half a million people have signed a petition to see Pastor Abedini freed.
What did our so called President do? Kerry and Obama both took advantage of publicity making it look as if they were sympathetic to this tortured, imprisoned, Christians’ plight. As per usual, Obama said he was concerned and, as per usual, did not a damn thing in relation to the issue. He did play some golf between then and now I believe.
The Abedini's were led to believe they had the State Department's support.
I do not own the above video. It is an excerpt from a Fox News interview with Jordan Seculow.
He's all about equality?
I bet President Obama and John Kerry both have had some pretty nice dinners, gone to some fancy places, and been all around pampered since they took advantage of the publicity surrounding Pastor Abedini. Saeed, himself, was just within the last few days told he would be sent to a hospital for treatment. He has internal bleeding from all the beatings. He’s still not in the hospital, mind you, he’s just been told he will get to go. I wonder how long President Obama waits for medical attention.
They did not bother to show for their own hearing.
They didn't even take the shot at the UN.
Since publicly showing support via the media, the State Department has been in front of the United Nations. With letter in hand and a huge petition to top it off, did they even bother to bring up the issue? Of course not! Why would they? They just led the Pastor, his family, his children, the 80 elected officials who penned the letter, and everyone else think they would. How nice of them. It instills such a warm sense of the government’s got my back doesn't it?
What do you think?
Over the last few days the physical appearance comparison being made between President Barack Hussein Obama and the actor playing Satan in “The Bible”, Mehdi Ouzaani, has taken over front pages across the Internet. After looking at the picture, I have to agree. They do look alike. More importantly, they act alike. Satan is the great deceiver. It looks like he’s got competition these days. Doing nothing in the face of evil is evil itself.
If the President really doesn't like the comparison to the devil, I strongly suggest he step up in the face of evil. God knows he can open his mouth about basketball, how fat we are, every woman’s right to have others contribute to the cost of her abortion and champion gay marriage. Why isn't he flapping his lips to get our tortured brother out of tribulation? Why isn't he standing up for the rights of a tortured American imprisoned abroad for his Christian faith? Like the book says people, judge by the fruits. What else would a devil do?

Update March 22, 2013
The State Department, due to nothing but public pressure, finally made a statement to the UN. For all of less than 50 seconds with 20 of that having nothing to do with Pastor Abedini directly. Considering all the taxes you have paid over your life, if it were you, wouldn't you think you should rate a little more than 30 seconds?
What has been the result? So far, not a damn thing.

Iran is imprisoning and abusing an American pastor because of his faith.
Update - 4-8-13
Pastor Saeed remains imprisoned. His birthday is coming up on May 7. Here's a link where you can send him a letter. We are hoping to flood the prison on that day. It costs nothing and takes but a moment. Please, let Pastor Abedini know we support him and are with him in spirit. Click the link and write to him, today.
Wouldn't you want to hear from someone that didn't want you dead if you were him?
