 Now Bible Faces Blasphemy Charges in Pakistan

The Bible is the latest target of Islamists in Pakistan, where Christian and other minorities routinely face blasphemy charges followed by “religious” lynching. An influential political party has asked the Islamic country’s apex court to ban the Christian holy book alleging it denigrates prophets.

A leader of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Samiul Haq) or JUI-S party on Tuesday demanded that the Supreme Court of Pakistan ban the Bible, saying “blasphemous” portions had been “added to the Bible,” Pakistan’s newspaper The News International reported.

Maulana Abdul Rauf Farooqi, a party leader, made the appeal at a press conference at a mosque, the Masjid-e-Khizra, in Lahore. He said if the court did not ban the Bible on its own, Islamic clerics would formally petition the court. A panel of lawyers is working on it, he added. ...

Greg, as always thank you for posting key news reports on Islams march toward world domination.

I don't think they will achieve "world" domination but that is the nature of the Islamic religion.

It is also the stated goal of the majority of clerics.

This attempt at passing this law to ban the christian bible is one more step. Plus our brothers and sisters are being killed as I write this for the Lord Jesus.

Pray and prepare! Be ready for whatever comes to remain faithful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

We must not forget that we have a history filled with bible banning. Just because it's happening today doesn't mean it has never happened before. We really shouldn't be shocked or disturbed about such things as this cycle of rejecting God and receiving God continues to go and will go on long after our bodies return to the dust. The nation that rejects the bible today will probably in a hundred years pass laws to protect it. Today is not that day, but it will come again.

We are living in a fat day, a day of fatness. Personally, I like the Muslims for they are open about what they believe. Whereas in the West they say, "God Bless America" in one breath and pass laws to ban prayer in the schools, or silence anyone that says the name of Jesus in public. I didn't say that I like what Muslims are doing, only that they come out and say why they don't believe the bible instead of being hypocritical.
