My good friend Denny Burk has done a great job compiling articles, information, and suggested action concerning Said Musa at his blog, which you can reach by clicking the link above. Thanks, Denny.
We spoke of and prayed for Said Musa during our service today. I am still trying to get an update on his situation. I have not yet found anything updating his status. I have prayed for him, of course. Hopefully, you have, too. This is one of the stories that should be covered but isn’t.
The entire world was in an uproar when a single, fringe pastor threatened to burn a Quran. Do you remember that? General Petraus and even President Obama spoke out against the threat of burning a book. Now, we have a real human atrocity being played out before our very eyes. A man has been tortured, abused, sexually assaulted in prison, unjustly convicted of the “crime” of converting from Islam to Christ, and, now, is likely to be executed by a judge simply because he chose to not to be a Muslim. There have been no statements by the President.
Afghanistan says that they allow freedom of religion, but they are about to kill someone for daring to exercise it. And the world is silent. Leaders are mute.
Contact President Obama and politely urge him to speak up against this violation of human dignity. http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact
