MP raises voice for persecuted Christians

Have you ever written a letter to your MP, urging them to raise a voice for persecuted Christians?

David Sweet, the MP for Ancaster/Dundas/Flamborough/Westdale, recently spoke about Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian pastor who has been sentenced to death for apostasy. Mr. Sweet also mentioned the one year anniversary of the death of Shahbaz Bhatti, a Christian minister in Pakistan’s government who was murdered on March 2, 2011. Bhatti was a critic of Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy laws in relation to many cases of Christians being falsely accused of blaspheming Muhammad or the Qur’an, including the highly publicized case of Asia Bibi.

To hear David Sweet’s recent speech, watch this short video clip.

  1. Love this! So blessed to have Mr. Sweet as my own MP.

    There are so many MP's in Canada today that have the same values and concerns as Mr. Sweet does.

    Glad that you brought this to light! In order to see a change for the positive in our government we must support it when it's speaking out like this! After all.. this is a democracy.

  2. A converted Christian woman is in need for your prayers for her save evacuation from Pakistan.
    Highly educated Muslim born woman, mother of 4 children, converted to Christianity from Islam in Pakistan. She is in great fear of death under Islamic law in Pakistan. She has been subjected to allegations under blasphemy law in Pakistan, Muslim religious clerics decreed her liable to death punishment as per Islamic law. And her relatives, cousins in law and Muslim society of Pakistan turned to enemy because of her conversion. The mercy of our Heavenly Father worked through some Christians of locality, by their help she succeeded to escape from the detention illegal. She has taken refuge in the church for protection of their life and belief with her five years son. She is waiting for safe evacuation from Pakistan to avail international protection for Safety of life and her faith in Christ.
    All brothers and sisters are requested to pray for her safe evacuation form Pakistan
