Lent and a Christian on trial.

With Ash Wednesday, the season of Lent began yesterday. Ex-Muslim Christian Pastor Ramin Parsa began his Lent by pleading "not guilty" in court this morning. He was charged with trespassing for sharing his testimony with interested Somali Muslim women. A third woman reported him to mall security, who chained him up in the basement of the Mall of America and held him for hours before calling the police.

I'm waiting to hear back from him after the court appearance. Godspeed, Pastor Parsa!
