I just heard a report on the news that a mob in Egypt is on the hunt for a young lady who's "disappeared," last seen lurking near a Coptic Church -- apparently they want to lynch her for the "crime" of apostasy.
It's long since become Islam's dirty open secret that apostasy and blasphemy bring the death penalty under sharia, and that for this and other reasons Christians have faced persecution in Islam even over the last decade or so.
Question: why can't Christians get themselves organized enough to do something about all this? And why is it mostly skeptics, like Pat Condell, Ayaan Ali, or Hitchens who complain about this? Why is it that all we get for the trouble of standing up for the rights of people we disagree with is a stream of patronization and outright insults?
Why is it that all the "Christian" posters here care about are ID theory, Biblical scholarship they know nothing about, and whitewashing Ratzinger's sordid career?
