    Contrary to popular opinion, Paul says bullies aren’t typically “wounded” people who are seeking to ease their pain.

    Naghmeh’s Story: Abuse and Betrayal Behind #SaveSaeed, Part II

    Naghmeh’s Story: Abuse and Betrayal Behind #SaveSaeed, Part II

    Guest Bios



    Show Transcript


    For years, Naghmeh Panahi heroically advocated for the release of her husband—Iranian-American pastor, Saeed Abedini—from an Iranian prison. Yet months before his release, Naghmeh revealed a dark secret: for years, Saeed had been physically, emotionally, and sexually abusing her.
    Yet rather than rallying to support this battered wife, Naghmeh says the Christian community attacked her. And she says some—including Franklin Graham and Jay Sekulow—relentlessly pressured her to reconcile with her abusive husband, or to even lie about what happened.

What’s wrong with being “A Feminist” Julie?

I am appreciative of the work being done here. Humans work best when there are checks and balances. Due to the rise of the mega church and the celebrity preachers this check and balance is being thrown to the wind. This subject needs to be looked at with a critical eye—bearing in mind the purpose in doing so is to be as Jesus modeled: Loving. I think she is doing so. Keep it up That said, I wondered why you made a point of saying “I’m not a feminist?” You are where you are because of feminism. You can vote, you have property in your own name, you are no longer considered “et ux” legally. You have this podcast and can speak your own mind without fear. You aren’t under the control of your husband, etc. Here is the definition of feminism according to the Cambridge dictionary: the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way. As the old baptist hymn I sang hundreds of times while growing up says: “In Christ there is no east or west, in him no south or north, but one great family of love throughout the whole wide.” I see affirmation is Jesus’s life and works that support feminism.

Always Equipping us! Don’t stop!

Every podcast/interview with Julie Roys of The Roys Report, is compelling, profoundly educational and constantly equipping us to grow in our knowledge and understanding of the culture wars within the church walls and beyond. As Dr Hassan states, the facts show the truth. Whatever the system, the facts reveal the manipulation. Hence why these podcasts are a significant platform for all of us to get our head out of the clouds and into the truth of what is happening in our church culture. Only in the truth are we set free. Only in the truth are we able to hear and see the presence of Christ and God and Holy Spirit before us. Thank you for the excellence you always produce through your investigative reporting Julie.
