Armed Muslims attacked and tried to burn down a Catholic church in Pakistan on March 28, in the latest in a series of violent incidents in which Islamic militants hit Christian targets. Pakistani Islamic leaders have announced a campaign against Christian targets, in response to the burning of a Qur'an by a fundamentalist pastor in Florida.

    I fail to see a comparison, Hartwood. If that were a rational argument, the copious amount of blood gushing from those burning Korans, would have quenched the flames.

    Wayne Sapp must selectively read his bible the way the terrorists read their koran. I guess he does not dare pray the Lord's Prayer, since forgiveness is not on his radar.
