It makes my stomach turn when I hear apologists’ claims that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ and that, meh, it’s just a few extremists giving it a bad name. Bullshit.
The few extremists in Pakistan, comprising most of the population of Pakistan, are threatening to explode the country into violence if the government pardons Asia Bibi, a Christian woman, accused of “blasphemy” by her peaceful, loving Muslim co-workers.
A CNN report the other day showed Asia Bibi’s children wondering if their mother would be executed; then reports came that the government was considering dropping the charges and setting her free (to be mobbed and killed by angry, peaceful muslims). Her husband and children, one of whom is disabled, had to flee their village because of death threats from their neighbors, who are filled with Allah’s love and peace, of course.
The Pakistani government fears it’s own fucking people if they remove the controversial blasphemy law, as some are calling for; the fucking Quran (unlike the fucking Bible) doesn’t even call for death in the case of blasphemy — that was later added by “scholars”.
The town cleric stated (in the CNN video) that he had “tears of joy pouring from his eyes” — not for the possible release of this poor innocent woman, but for his beloved “prophet”; he said that Bibi’s death sentence was one of the “happiest moments of his life”. That is just fucking sick. And the sheep go with it, unanimously agreeing (or else) that she should be hanged.
Religions are cancers in this world.
