Yet Another RoP™ Death Sentence for "Blasphemy"

I still wonder when the left will wake up and realize that Western Christian nations stopped executing people for heresy hundreds of years ago, and realize that Eastern and African Islamic countries are doing the same NEARLY EVERY DAY, here in the civilized 21st century.

(h/t The Religion of Peace)
Lahore (AsiaNews) – A Pakistani district court yesterday condemned to death Younis Masih, a Christian accused of blasphemy. The judges also condemned to man to pay a fine amounting to 100 thousand Rupees. Defence lawyers denounce a lack of evidence and accuse police of negligence for not having carried out a thorough investigation into the case.

Police had registered a blasphemy case against Masih on September 10, 2005: according to charges laid against him he allegedly made derogatory remarks about Prophet Muhammad and the Koran at during an argument with a group of Muslims, an offence punishable by hanging or life imprisonment according to state law.
I suppose it's also worth mentioning that this country has nuclear weapons, and has an armed population that is sympathetic to Osama and the Taliban. Nothing to see here, move along.

i am not sure where you get the idea that leftists prefer governments like pakistan's to a government where separation of church and state are guaranteed. i am curious. i can't think of a single leftist who has ever held up pakistan or saudi arabia as models of democracy. can you? unlike many on the right, we leftists actually support the continuation of this separation between church and state. and also unlike many on the right, we do not believe US support of these governments is a good thing. now, i know there are some on the right who, like me, do not like our government paying thugs like these. but many do.

so. . . what was your point? that leftists are in love with religious governments? and where did that factoid come from? just curious. i deal in facts. not xenophobia.
