I dread what Bill Warner’s next bulletin of Christian Persecution will look like. Here are a couple of links, courtesy of Fjordman, from Jihad Watch just from the past day or so.
Lahore (AsiaNews) – Pakistan’s fundamentalists are rejoicing following the acquittal verdict. The country’s Christian minority is “under shock” because, this time as well, the massacre of innocent victims done in the name of the infamous blasphemy law will go unpunished. The justice system also shows its powerlessness vis-à-vis extremists who can carry out heinous crimes with total impunity, whilst the government remains silent. Meanwhile, a Muslim religious leader publicly says that Christians “deserve” to be murdered.
Anger management in Modern, Moderate IndonesiaWhat if it had been a mosque, and not a church? What if it had been an imam, and not a priest? No one would be getting off with a few months in jail, minus time served. Of course, Indonesia has been downplaying the role of Islamic supremacism in this attack since the beginning, with a police chief insisting the attacks “had nothing to do with religion,” even though the rioters went on a rampage in the first place because they wanted a death sentence for “blasphemy” against Islam. And in that case, the defendant, while he was described as being of a Christian background, had insulted Catholics as well as Muslims. Only the latter group responded in this way.
