There was a report on the TV last night about a Pakistani christian woman sentenced to death
for blaspheming the prophet ( Mohamed I suppose).
She was working in the fields with two muslims. It was hot and she had a drink of water.
She offered some to the two muslims but they would not drink from the same cup as a Christian. "It was unthinkable."
The report interviewed others who said that they do invite Christians to their house, but they ask them to bring their own food and have a seperate dinner service to be used by them.
Anyway, the woman, annoyed that they would not drink from the same cup as her asked if their prophet was like that, and then she allegedly blasphemed him.
She was denounced to the Pakistani authorities by her co-workers, and was subsequently sentenced to death.
She is a mother with 5 children.
People interviewed all said that yes, the sentence was merited.
Just how far can people be twisted by religious beliefs? To the point of calmly taking the most precious thing, life itself, from another human being?
Thank goodness JWs are not a state religion.
