Pakistani Muslims Want to Ban the Bible, where is Obama?

A group of radical clerics in Pakistan wants the country's Supreme Court to declare certain passages in the Bible blasphemous - because they depict as flawed certain biblical characters whom Muslims regard as Islamic prophets.
If the court fails to do so, they said, then lawyers will submit an application for the Bible to be formally banned in Pakistan.
The campaign, announced by the clerics at a Lahore mosque and reported Tuesday in the Karachi daily The News and the Urdu-language Roznama Islam, is the latest attempt by radicals to use the country's blasphemy laws to shield Islam from perceived insults.

Where do you think your buddy Obama stands (or kneels) on this deal?

From Audacity of Hope: 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.' 

 Any questions?

Any questions at all?

I didn't think so!

The Mad American Club: How appropriate! I have just watched a sick pantomime called a presidential election. Firstly the republicans get all bitchy with each other while spending millions trying to find a nominee. Then when a nominee is found to represent only 53% of all Americans, many more millions are spent trying to get him elected. What a farce. I'm sure glad I'm not an American.
