Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American pastor who spent three-and-a-half years imprisoned in Iran for his faith, is warning Americans that the “spirit of the anti-Christ” is coming in the face of activist judges who rule against Christians for their biblical beliefs.
Abedini, who voted for President Donald Trump in his bid for the White House against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday that last week the court system “stood against our country’s security.”
He linked to an article in USA Today reporting on Trump’s executive order temporarily banning refugees amid security concerns. The order was halted late last week by a Seattle judge’s injunction, and is currently being reviewed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Abedini wrote that he has a “serious problem” with the way some issues are handled by the judicial system, and warned that if the trajectory continues Christians could “go to prison or be punished for standing for their biblical beliefs.”
As an example, he pointed to the cases of conservative Christian business owners who’ve been sued or fined for refusing to participate in same-sex marriage ceremonies because of their belief that marriage is a union between one man and one woman. (Click to Article)
