I spoke at a conference this morning at which the famous author of Dead Man Walking , Sr. Helen Prejean was also speaking.  I had a moment with her just before the start of proceedings and found she was unaware of the pending execution of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani in Iran for apostasy.  She immediately dictated this plea, which appeared on my Twitter page @forcedexit:

“To Iranian people: Stop execution Youcef Nadarkhani. It demeans life of all to kill a man for his faith.”

Let us hope the Iranian Government listens.
