Billy Graham Speaks Out for Pastor Saeed

Today, I was so touched to see that Franklin Graham placed a full page ad in the New York Times, urging the new President of Iran to free Saeed Abedini, an American who is in Iran’s Evin prison.  There, prisoners are routinely hanged outside their cells to terrorize the other inmates.
