Pakistani Christian official assassinated

Shahbaz Bhatti, Pakistan’s Ministry of Minority Affairs, was assassinated for opposing that country’s anti-blasphemy law, which is being used to persecute his fellow Christians.  He was the second official to be killed for taking this position.  At the link, see also the video in which he confesses his Christian faith and says that he is willing to die for it.

    Message received, loud and clear. Christians there ought to shake the dust off the sandals and get out of the country.

    Sadly, we helped finance this crisis on tax day as well as at the pump. The radicalization of Pakistan’s government was occurring at the very same time the US and Saudis began pumping billions into that country. But, hey, at least they’re not Commies.
