Asia Bibi Is Our Sister

Proverbs 15:29 - The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.

As I've been praying for and thinking about our sister Asia Bibi and all that she has gone through, I'd like to thank all of you who have been praying for her and her family.  The Lord is good and He will continue His purposes in her life.  Please keep praying.

Here is an article titled Asia Bibi is Our Sister and it's one person's interesting opinion about what is going on with Asia in Pakistan.

... and we Pakistanis need to stand by her. I endorse capital punishment for those who bash Islam and its sacred symbols. And no one bashes Islam in Pakistan. Certainly not our Pakistani Christian brothers and sisters whose forefathers played a great role in Pakistan Independence Movement. 

We own and defend our great religion and our great Prophet. But harassing a poor Pakistani Christian woman in the name of blasphemy is not justice. The great, fair-minded leaders of Islam, like Omar and Ali, would never endorse this. Shame on these half-educated mullahs who can't offer a word of support to a weak and poor woman being wrongly accused of blasphemy.

Would anyone dare utter a word against our great religion in our country, let alone a poor and weak woman who earns a living as a domestic helper?
