Meanwhile, in Pakistan, the Beat Rolls on
Rolling Stones concert in Pakistan?
By now it's as common and routine as a Cubs' loss in the dog days of summer. Christian girl with Down Syndrome suspected of having burnt pages of a Koran is arrested and faces death penalty as screaming mobs gather in front of her house and demand death. What else is new in Pakistan?
I remember several months ago attending a town hall promoting sharia law at the Islamic Center of Orange County. Among the speakers was the Pakistani Consul General of Los Angeles, who lectured us Americans on human rights. You talk about hypocrisy.
"Today", she said, we are far from what Jefferson and the Constitution talk about". ("So much hatred.") She urged her listeners as Americans to "marry" the Constitution with Islamic values.
Incredible as it sounds, the leading Islamic organizations in the US, who call themselves "moderate" are actively promoting sharia law in this country as being perfectly compatible with the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Never mind those little hidden details about death to apostates, homosexuals, adulteresses and blasphemers.
Like that girl with Down syndrome in Pakistan.
