Pakistan: Christian tombs desecrated, woman gang raped
Catholic World News - May 27, 2011
Plowing over tombs with a tractor, Muslim landowners in a town near Pakistan’s third-largest city desecrated a Christian cemetery. The attack took place in Chak Jhumra, which is located near Faisalabad.
The attack follows reports of a recent gang rape of a Christian woman near Gojra, which is also located in Punjab province. The woman had been kidnapped by a Muslim colleague.
Also in Faisalabad, Christians report that a wealthy Muslim kidnapped two Christian girls, forcing them to accept Islam and to marry him. When the father of the girls complained to local police, he was arrested and charged with using alcohol.
In both cases, police refused to launch an investigation.

The mainstream media will never report any mistreatment,murder of Christians,because they don't care. Christianity is the target of the Liar and he has willing assistants.

Where is the outrage? Where is the mainstream media on reporting this? Where are the feminists and those who say they want women to have choice? Where are our priests and bishops in calling us to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters? Lord, forgive us our indifference, guide our response, and send us strength and courage.

Just more proof to me that the devil is behind that vile and evil religion.
