ISLAMABAD -- "Hundreds of rioting Muslims attacked Christians in eastern Pakistan on Saturday, burning and looting their homes in a rampage that killed eight Christians, including a child, in the latest violence against minorities in the conservative Muslim country.
The unrest started late Thursday, when members of a banned extremist Muslim organization began torching Christian homes in a village in the Punjabi city of Gojra after allegations that a Quran had been defaced, Federal Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti said...."
It was Jesus Christ who said...'Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.'
Certainly it is sad to witness organized hatred in radical, allegedly pious peoples of the earth. They are religious. They are not spiritual because they have neither the Christ nor His Holy Spirit. Therefore, guided solely by a fanatical fervor, they feel free to advance on the innocent (including children) an unholy, unmerciful, unloving, attack designed to leaves scars on the minds and bodies of whomever they view as "the enemy."
We need to pray for those who are steeped in any religion built on a foundation of hatred and revenge.
