Did you think that radical Muslims couldn’t sink any lower? Well, they can and they have. See below – Burkasrugly
Recently an eleven year old Christian girl with Down Syndrome was accused of blasphemy in the largely Islamic state of Pakistan. Only 4% of the people in Pakistan are Christians, the remainder are Muslims. This young lady was accused of destroying a Koran. Supposedly in her hands were found the burned pages of a Koran. An angry crowd of 600 t0 1,000 angry radical, militant Muslim men surrounded the little hovel of her home. They were screaming for her blood and demanding her death.These radicals were “real men”. So insecure in their Islamic manhood that it took a thousand of them to intimidate one poor little girl that was retarded.
Blasphemy under Sharia Islamic law can include the destruction of Muslim religious texts, saying anything bad about the prophet Mohammed (even if it is true), or anything harmful about Islam or about Allah. The penalty can be death, imprisonment, or lashing. Blasphemy is a one size fits all legal charge. Many of these blasphemy charges are baseless. There are literally hundreds of Christians rotting in the hell holes of the cess pools of Pakistani jails. The few that are released are usually tracked down and killed by Muslim vigilantes. Since under Sharia law Muslims are directed by the Koran to kill blasphemers, there is really no punishment for the Muslim killers of non-Muslims, even the killing of an eleven year old severely retarded child. The real test of any society is how it treats its most vulnerable members. Islam totally flunks this test. The little Christian child with low intelligence must be terrified and unable to understand why she is in prison. Please pray for her, her family and all the Christians of Pakistan.
We must work for a world where no eleven year old fears for her life.
Abide with me: fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide !
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me
Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies:
Heaven’s morning breaks, and the earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me. *
* from hymn Abide with Me: Fast Falls the Eventide
In hoc signo,
COURAGE, the virtue without which all the others are meaningless.
