I guess whatever their spiritual leader (Satan) wants, he gets...

"The torture and deaths of Shahzad Masih, 32, and his pregnant wife, Shama, 28, in the small village of Chak 59 were sparked by accusations they desecrated the Quran" (the devil's 'holy' book).

"Muslims armed with hatchets, axes, sticks and clubs beat a Christian couple, tied them to a tractor, dragged them over a road covered in crushed stones, soaked their bodies in gasoline and burned them in a kiln.

Zealots take Pakistan's blasphemy law into own hands

Similar attacks on black people took place in the south of our own country for decades and decades. Religious and racial prejudice and oppression are part of the human experience. They are not unique to Muslims.

This is sad and this seems to be the issue the government needs to change: "The problem is not with the blasphemy laws, rather with the mindset of the people who accused the couple of blasphemy in the first place, then executed them without even listening to their pleas," said Farman Ali, 65, resident of Prem Nagar, a village near where the Christian couple were slain.

Yet we changed and have laws to prevent the hate. They haven't even begun to change and seems like they want this view to spread around the world.

They did crap like that to the Irish too. Except it was going on in multiple countries and for centuries.

Arthur Shelton, a single person who appeared to have some serious mental issues. Little different than a group of people in an organized event.
