Pakistani Muslims Burn Two Churches

One has to believe these attacks are certainly against Christians. Would anyone in America burn a church, simply because someone chose to burn our Bible? I don't think so. We know it would not be worth going to jail for, but will these Muslims be punished for the same crime?

KARACHI, Pakistan, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Angry Muslims raided and set fire to two churches in southern Pakistan following allegations that a Christian had desecrated the Koran, reports said Monday.

Hundreds of protesters attacked and burned two churches in the city of Sukkur, some 300 miles north of Karachi, in Sindh province, Channel NewsAsia reported. A school at one of the churches was also damaged, but no injuries were reported.

It is being reported that the incident was started when a young Christian man threw pages of the Muslim holy book into the trash can. The report says he was trying to frame his father-in-law for blasphemy, which is punishable by death in Pakistan.

Explain to me how peaceful the Islam religion is again?

Thank you for your kind words regarding my Whittington speech post. I enjoyed reading your blog, especially this about the churches burning. I'd like to know why this outrage didn't start back when the cartoons were initially published in September 2005. Gotta be an agenda of somekind.

Nathan, I agree - there has to be some sort of agenda. But, it seems to have died down some in the media.

Sorry to be so late in posting an answer. I must be getting 'old'. :)
