The Smile of a Martyr, well no...

I found this on Facebook
This young Iranian has been sentenced to death by a judgment immediately executed by hanging because guilty of a heinous crime: being a Christian and do not abjure the faith by accepting the supreme sacrifice. The smile on his face is that of the first Christian martyrs in front of the mouth of the Lions. Don't know the name, but we know for a fact that is already listed in the Canon of Saints.
And I think with sadness to our lukewarmness in being followers (more often than not unworthy) of Christ (always ready with distinction and always ready for mediation of worldliness).
It has gone 'viral' under such a heading,
but apparently not, he is murderer ....
 Two men have been hanged in a Tehran square for the murder of a prominent judge, thought to be the first public execution in Iran's capital since 2002.
Majid and Hossein Kavousifar's deaths come a day after nine public hangings in other parts the country.
The government says it is part of a major effort to tackle violent crime and the illegal drug trade in Iran. .......

Of course the cowards who are doing the execution have their faces covered.

An army of missionaries could not do more to preach the truth of Christianity than this man.

Ehm...Did you actually READ this post? The men were murderers NOT Christian Martyrs!

It's a good argument against the death penalty anyway, and doing it in public is liable to get pictures taken and then re-labelled as something else.

Incidentally that more look like a strangulation than a hanging. These people must be seriously incompetent if they can't even do a proper hanging.

I am confused. Is this a picture of a martyr or a murderer? Or both?
