Update from Pakistan
#1
In her first interview since her release on bail, the 14 year old Pakistani Christian girl accused of blasphemy insisted that she did not burn the Koran.
The court has adjourned the blasphemy trial after a brief hearing, explaining that the investigation is not complete. AsiaNews reports that the court is probably waiting for developments in the case of an Islamic cleric who has been charged with planting evidence against Rimsha Masih. That cleric will be facing a hearing on September 16.

A Pakistani court has postponed a ruling on the blasphemy charges against Rimsah Masih, the young girl who was accused of blasphemy.
The High Court in Islamabad announced tnat it would rule in November 14 on a motion to dismiss the charges against the accused girl. The motion to dismiss the charges is supported by testimony from three people who say that the evidence against the girl was planted by a Muslim leader.
While Christians (aided by human rights activists) have called for the immediate release of Rimsah Masih, Islamic militants have sought to postpone a judicial decision - to date successfully.

I think I originally posted this in the wrong place. A Pakistani appeal court's decision to dismiss balsphemy charges against Rimsha Masih has won the applause of human rights activists. but the Fides news service reminds readers that Pakistan's draconian balsphemy law has claimed many other victims.

Thanks for these posts, Poche! Pakistanis, and others like them, demand all sorts of minority rights when they migrate to the West. The very rights they deny to their own  minorities back home.

That is true. Of course rather than worrying about who they are, we have to remember who we are as Catholics. You could be somebody's first encounter with the Catholic Church. What will he learn from you?.

What you say is true in that we must act like Christians all the time. However, people are usually entrenched in their views and beliefs, and their response to Christian attitudes may not always be favorable. Mother Teresa, in the absence of missionary and canvassing priests, amply showed the face of Jesus to millions. Different people said different things about her motives, and rather, only a  few turned to Our Lord despite her exemplary Christian behavior.
