Self explanatory title. I abhor that nicey nicey, politically correct, pseudo-Christianity which almost always supports leftwing attitudes - which in most cases are profoundly anti-Gospel. This Blog supports persecuted Christians. This Blog exposes cults. This Blog opposes junk science. UPDATED DAILY. This is not a forum. It is hardhitting and unashamedly evangelical so if it offends - please do not come to this site!

Pakistani Man Sentenced To Death.
Pakistani man sentenced to death for sharing content about prophet Mohammad on Facebook.
A COURT in Pakistan has sentenced a man to death for comments he made about the prophet Mohammad on Facebook. In an unprecedented legal sentencing, 30-year-old Taimoor Raza was found guilty at a court in Bahawalpur of committing blasphemy online.
Mr Raza was arrested last year after a man he engaged in an online debate with about Islam revealed himself to be a counter-terrorism agent, according to defence lawyer Rana Fida Hussain.
Speaking before the sentencing Saturday, Mr Hussain said his client was innocent and would appeal the conviction.
The ruling is a further step towards a nationwide shutdown of online dissent in Pakistan, where unproven allegations of blasphemy have already led to violent mob lynchings.
