Turkish pastor facing 'nightmarish' prosecution

A Turkish pastor is in trouble with prosecutors, and it is turning out to be a nightmarish event.International Christian Concern 's Jeremy Sewell says when the pastor came to church, he found notice from the town prosecutor that he was a suspect in a court case and had to immediately report to the court. The pastor is now facing charges of insulting Mohammed, insulting the police, and performing a marriage ceremony in his church-charges that could send him to prison."The accusation was a handwritten note, and the person who had accused him had given their identification number," reports Sewell."That identification number turned out to be false." Sewell contends the charges are also false, and the prosecutor is just bowing to Muslim extremists out of a sense of fear.
He now asks people to pray that God will dismiss the charges against the Turkish pastor.
As in the days of Noah....
