In mid-January of 2013, plaintiff says, he was kidnapped in Damascus by "radical Muslims” — including his uncle — "who told Plaintiff that they had read of his Christian conversion on the internet and that they were aware that he had converted from Islam. Although Plaintiff denied that he had converted to Christianity, his accusers were undeterred because they repeatedly told him that the news of his baptism at FPC was on the internet.” They then tortured him for several days, and said they would "carry out his death sentence resulting from his conversion from Islam.”

Finally, after several days of being bound, beaten and tortured, Plaintiff was, again, taken out to be beheaded. When Plaintiff observed that video cameras had been set up to record his beheading, he knew that his death was imminent and was able to free his hands of the ropes that he loosened in the days leading up to his execution. By doing so, Plaintiff was able to forcibly take possession of a firearm that one of his captors held and turn it against his captors. In his escape, Plaintiff was forced to shoot and to kill his paternal uncle who was among his captors. For doing so, Plaintiff is now wanted for the crime of murder in Syria.

He then escaped to the U.S., but, "[s]ince returning to the United States, Plaintiff has received numerous death threats and continues to face a death sentence that could be imposed by radical Muslims in the United States at any moment.”

Suing his church for disclosing that he had converted.

Huh, I wonder who arfcom's "enlightened ones" will spend more time shitting on, the christian faith that mistakenly breached his privacy, or the muslim faith that tortured him and planned to execute him.

It's a hard one to call. Martyrs add that "feel good factor" that someone would die for their beliefs, bonus points if it's someone thousands of miles away that you never have to actually meet. You can't have a good proper martyrdom unless then someone prepared to do the messy work of the actual martyring.

So, the church was basically doing him a favour by giving him an unparalleled opportunity to die for his faith - that's like a guaranteed-non-stop-golden-ticket straight to your own personal set of wings and harp. The church should counter-sue for lost opportunity - just think how much cash they could have raked in if they'd manage to arrange their own personal martyr!

Pure ignorant babble about Christianity. Being murdered/becoming a martyr as a Christian gains a person absolutely nothing. Salvation is already assured through Christ.
