Dear [Insert Title and Last Name],
American Pastor Saeed Abedini was sentenced to eight years in Iran’s notoriously brutal Evin Prison, where he has been beaten and tortured for one reason—because of his faith in Jesus Christ.
Religious intolerance continues to threaten the lives of Christians in Iran, even when they are American citizens. Secretary of State John Kerry called for Pastor Saeed’s release six months after his arrest. Since then, our government appears to have done little to pressure Iran to free him. Please help him by calling on the government of Iran to immediately release Pastor Saeed Abedini and allow him to return home to his wife and children here in the United States.
Thank you for your time.
