From Telegraph:

Asia Bibi, a 45-year-old mother-of-five, denies blasphemy and told investigators that she was being persecuted for her faith in a country where Christians face routine harassment and discrimination.

  1. "..it is not a question of good or bad law...it is law!!
    Right outa the Nuremburg transcripts.
    I detest the myopic imams, despise the Christian Mass Manipulaters, feel disgust at the narrow-mindededness of the fundy rank and file. An excuse from ignorance can be at least attempted, here.
     But I get uncomfortably close to hatred at the tap-dancing of the well-educated, rationalizing, expediantly evading, self-serving logic and selective morality of the universal politician/official.

  7. Realistically, what is this guy going to say?  He can hardly speak freely.

    However, in the more recent video where the men of the village are polled, they unanimously say she should be hanged. Did they have a free say in that? Are they also afraid of what might happen if they dissent?

    The Imam, the only guy who could have said otherwise, is a psychopath, that's clear.

  10. Don't be childish.  It's one thing to hold people responsible for the consequences of their actions, and it's another thing to wonder what will happen if you put a camera in front of them and wonder whether they're going to say.

    Look up the difference between an explanation and an excuse.

  14. <span>These are the primates who want to promote a global blasphemy law allowing them to hang us anytime anywhere if we speak our mind about religion in general and muhamma in particular. It should be remarked though that islam is in itself blasphemous by definition, as it affirms for example that jesus is not a god. Maybe they should consider hanging themselves over this "crime"?

  15. I'm sorry you're not interested in engaging in a discussion.  If you think that there's no difference between analyzing a situation and passing judgement on it, then there's no progress to be made.

  16. If you are ready for it, do let us know what we can expect this guy to say on camera. I'm still waiting.

  18. I expected him to say exactly what he said. My entire original point was that the rationalizing, so-called educated and intelligent people more often do. Stick a mike in Goebel's face and he'll agree with the masses that Jews are bad for the Reich...or the ol' fave...what choice do I have?
    Interprit my initial post like this: Wouldn't it be nice if the presumably educated, with the assummption that they know better, didn't compomise their intellectual principles for self-interest and stood up to be heard. It's called "courage." I understand some Germansspoke out.  The whole idea behind "morality" after all, is to refuse to do...and refuse to promote... the immoral.
