Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Ms Bibi, now 53, was convicted of blasphemy in 2010, a crime which carries a death sentence in Muslim-majority Pakistan, and she has been in solitary confinement on death row ever since.

It was a hot day in June 2009, when her mother went to fetch water for her fellow farmhands while working in a field picking berries.

The Muslim women she was labouring with objected, saying that as a non-Muslim Ms Bibi was unfit to drink from the same water bowl as them.

Ms Bibi would later say that the women insulted her religion, to which she responded: 'I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Mohammed ever do to save mankind?'

This prompted the Muslim women to go to a local imam and accuse Ms Bibi of blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed.

The death penalty is the death penalty.

Every country has their own reasons for it.

The lady broke the law in Pakistan and is going to die.

You want her to be a martyr because she's Christian.

You have an agenda to push.

Don't want to die? Don't break the law. Anywhere in the world.

This country is in no way shape or form a Christian nation. Your religious arrogance and ignorance is duly noted. Oh and Native Americans revered Gay and lesbians. Up until the white Europeans came and bastardized their belief system. BTW Christians here want me and my kind dead so you really need to learn somethings before spouting off nonsense.

I oppose the death penalty for all crimes. Though I've begun to waver on violations of an oath of office that reach the level of treason. Not because I think it's a deterrent, just as a matter of principle.

Start a war.

Clearly their death penalty laws are unacceptable.

Don't worry. This war will probably take 3 days. Or 3 weeks. I don't foresee it taking longer than 3 months.

Supreme Court is due to announce ruling on her appeal against death sentence

Hasn't been sentenced to death YET. I know BOAZ hopes she is executed (and honestly I don't give a frak) so he can cry croc tears out of his busted eye.

There is also the fact that even though Pakistan has the death penalty, they have NEVER executed a woman before.

If they execute her, she will be the first. There is some reluctance in legal circles to break with tradition... they don't want to execute a woman.

This is why the case has been lingering for so long. If this had been a man, he would be dead in short order.

To me, it doesn't count as blasphemy.

Ms Bibi's case has outraged Christians worldwide

And the fake war started on Iraq by the Christian USA which killed a million people (mostly kids).. no outrage among Christians for that? LOL

Either way, I have said before.... Christianity is going to be run out of Pakistan... out of India... out of China.... out of Asia.

This poisonous creed left behind by the colonials has no place here. Only Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism belongs in Asia. Full stop.

We can say that the Christian community is 300 years more advanced ethically than the Muslim community. But we cannot claim to have a better history. Or are they just 30 years behind us??? Humans have developed such absolutely obscene belief systems.

Edward Wightman (c. 1580 – 11 April 1612) was an English radical Anabaptist, executed at Lichfield on charges of heresy. He was the last person to be burned at the stake in England for heresy.

The last person to be burned as a witch in Scotland was Janet Horne at Dornoch in Ross shire in 1727. Janet had been accused of witching her daughter to make her hands and feet grow into horses hooves, so that she could ride her.

The Salem witchcraft trial of 1878, also known as the Ipswich witchcraft trial and the second Salem witch trial, was an American civil case held in May 1878 in Salem, Massachusetts, in which Lucretia L. S. Brown, an adherent of the Christian Science religion, accused fellow Christian Scientist Daniel H. Spofford of attempting to harm her through his "mesmeric" mental powers. The court ruled it was not clear how it could prevent such mental control, even if it were to imprison Spofford. Brown's appeal was dismissed in November 1878. One critical observer called the trial "one of the most bizarre court-room sessions ever held in the United States.

The Scopes Trial, formally known as The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes and commonly referred to as the Scopes Monkey Trial, was an American legal case in July 1925 in which a substitute high school teacher, John T. Scopes, was accused of violating Tennessee's Butler Act, which had made it unlawful to teach human evolution in any state-funded school. Scopes was found guilty and fined $100, (~$1395 in 2018)

Then in 1988 a string of bizarre remarkably similar daycare rape, devil worship, goat sacrifice cases hit the USA, moving across the country with a copycat style like the hi-jacking cases that used to plague us until Cuba decided to return the hijackers. Most were convicted of committing crimes for which no evidence of any kind exited. Since the accused were sentenced to prison, not death, they ere all eventually exonerated after spending a decade in jail for doing nothing wrong.

"As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion, -- as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen [Muslims], -- and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

I always thought the Catholic Church had the most power.

Doesn't matter though since the Churches when combined far outnumber any other organizations protesting Trumps unChristian cruelty.

And it isn't particularly relevant to the poor woman Pakistan is set to murder for.....verbally not liking a religion?

Outside of madhouses like Pakistan are there any other countries that execute people for anything other than causing or aiding sex crimes or death of people?

Snoofy are you being obtuse?

#84 | Posted by Tor at 2018-10-11 08:07 PM | Reply

Well, I did forget China. That was a bit obtuse of me.

Saudi Arabia has been executing political dissidents in earnest for a few years now.

I also forgot those Asian countries that execute drug smugglers, places like Philippines and some of the Muslim countries.

Playing dumb isn't funny if done to often.

I think Malaysia executes those caught smuggling drugs.

I guess it is easy to talk trash about other countries than it is to be reminded you live in one of the worst places on the planet when it comes to inbreeding with your brothers and sisters (notice, I did not say cousins).

Muslim, Christian, Jewish, hare Krishna, Wiccan, I don't give a flying fonabi.

If you believe in some sentient higher power/s, there's a 99.99% chance you're a vile ----- and the world would be better off without you.

And don't hand me that "religious people are charitable and most historical advancements were made by believers" rot.

Most of them were "believers" out of necessity. They'd have laughed at the religious of they wouldn't have been tortured to death.

This country is in no way religious. The founding fathers were mostly deists, who had more in common with atheists than any Christian.

So take your invisible superhero and leave me the Belgium alone.

Religion based laws are always bad. This is why we can't let conservatives reduce these United States to an immoral phony-Christian Law State. We'll be no better than Pakistan if that's the case. Also all the goat----ing republicans on this site would love this place to be like Pakistan, for multiple reasons.

It seems when they're not punitive or cruel most religion based law seems to logical we don't even notice it.

Religion is outdated and so are the books.

But the cult is fanatical.

So it persists.

Is it because teaching a man to fish was too much work, so instead the Christians just gave him a fish handout? :)

"Jesus ... combines all duties (1) in one universal rule (which includes within itself both the inner and the outer moral relations of men), namely: Perform your duty for no motive other than unconditioned esteem for duty itself, i.e., love God (the Legislator of all duties) above all else; and (2) in a particular rule, that, namely, which concerns man's external relation to other men as universal duty: Love every one as yourself, i.e., further his welfare from good-will that is immediate and not derived from motives of self-advantage. These commands are not mere laws of virtue but precepts of holiness which we ought to pursue, and the very pursuit of them is called virtue."

Immanuel Kant

So you're giving Jesus credit for food stamps? Can you blame Jesus for the roughly 1950 years that there weren't any food stamps too?
