Where's the hysteria? Oh, that's right. Nobody cares when Bibles are burnt because there are no savage Christians out there ready to respond with violence.
Once again, this story takes place in Pakistan. Read from Weasel Zippers:
Pakistan: Muslims Attack Church, Set Fire to Stack of Bibles…
"And yet the world freaks out when a tiny Church in Florida simply threatens to burn the Koran but when it really happens to Christians there isn’t so much as a peep…
(Continental News)- 'Another shocking attack against Pakistani Christians has taken place, this time by a group of unidentified Muslim men who attacked the Nasri Pentecostal Church in Shah Latif Town, Karachi.
The unprovoked violence took place at around midnight on Saturday, September 18, 2010, when a group of men cut the locks of the church and then, once inside, went on an orgy of violence.
They piled up Bibles, hymnals (including Books of the Psalms), and musical instruments and then set them on fire and fled the scene of their crime.
The ASSIST News Service was told about the appalling desecration at the Pentecostal church by the Rev. Khadim Bhutto, a clergyman who works with the Gospel Vision Church Ministries (GVCM) and an activist with the Gawahi Mission Trust (GMT), a Christian human rights advocacy group.
The Rev. Bhutto told ANS that that “erupting smoke and the light of the fire had attracted the attention of several Christian men” who were nearby and they “rushed into the church and were able to save several more items from being completely destroyed in the blaze.”
On Tuesday, September 21, 2010, a Christian rights defender group, the Human Rights Development Commission (HRDC), under the leadership of its Chairman William Sadiq, staged a protest rally against the torching of the church.
Sadiq said that he “condemned the attack by the Muslim suspects” saying that “if the reverse had occurred, and Christians had attacked a Mosque, the repercussions could have been terrible and extremely violent.”
Commenting on the possible motive for the attack, Sadiq said that “it might have been a reaction to the Rev. Terry Jones’ threat to burn copies of the Koran (Qur’an), viewed as holy by all Muslims, on 9/11, at his church in Gainesville, Florida.'"
