Faith Groups Expect Arrests at White House Demonstrations for Persecuted Pastor

What are we doing to save an American citizen? ¬†Forget all the religious aspects of this case, we know Iran is an Islamic State, we know that maybe he shouldn’t have gone there, we know that it’s their right to imprison him.

But let’s look at this in the context of American values.

Here in the States, we believe in Freedom of Speech, we believe in Freedom of Religion, we believe in EQUAL Rights Under the Law, we believe in Fair Trials and the Right to an Attorney.

The Mullahs don’t believe in any of those things, their beliefs are the antithesis of the American way, a way we’ve had hundreds of thousands of Americans die for, a way that we’ve spread across the world to cheers and acclaim. But Iran, as run by the Mullahs, doesn’t believe in that, yet we’re trying to make a connection based on our values.

Let’s stop playing nice, let’s stop pretending, and let’s stop and think. How should we deal with the Mullahs? How about this, how about we deal with them by their values.

We threaten, we cajole, we insult, we fund attacks, we find loopholes in negotiations, we fund their opposition to regional dominance.

Let’s stop playing by our rules, and start playing by theirs, We’ll have FAR better results.
