Pakistani Christian Couple Sentenced To Death For Sending Blasphemous Text Messages

A Christian couple working at a Christian school in Pakistan were arrested for sending text messages deemed blasphemous against the prophet Mohammed and now have been sentenced to death...oh and they have to pay a fine before they die, too.

So that's how it is, huh, Muslims of Pakistan?  A text message that says "Jesus Saves" or something like that means death?  Is your prophet a little pussy that has to be "protected" by you insignificant dweebs?  One day, my day the trumpet will blast.

The story comes from DAWN.
