John Kerry, who has been confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State, has condemned Iran for its imprisonment of U.S. Pastor Saeed Abedini in comments made on Tuesday. . . .

Adedini, the 32-year-old Iran-born pastor who was sentenced to 8 years in prison supposedly for "endangering national security" by helping underground churches, is appealing against the decision in what the ACLJ, which represents him, has called a "sham" trial.

"This is a very positive sign that the incoming Secretary of State understands the important nature of the case of Pastor Saeed Abedini, U.S. citizen imprisoned in Iran and now facing years of beatings and torture simply because of his faith," the American Center for Law and Justice Executive Director Jordan Sekulow said in a statement to The Christian Post. . . .
