ZenTiger Blasphemy

A Christian was sentenced to 5 years jail in Indonesia for distributing pamphlets that some accusers decided were blasphemous towards Islam.

5 Years jail for blasphemy. I know what you are thinking right now, that a sentence like that sounds a little light, doesn't it? I mean, why not the death sentence?

Well, that's exactly what thousands of Muslims thought, and went on a rampage attacking another priest, and destroying several churches and other Christian related buildings.

It was good of them to show some moderation, after all, it was Indonesia's interfaith harmony week. I think that's where Christians are told to try harder than usual to engage in peaceful dialog with a culture that pays lip service to rule of law and respect for human rights. These people have quickly been labelled "fanatics", and indeed they are. What needs to be remembered is that they number the thousands, and world-wide, in the millions.

I think we should retaliate by refusing to buy their native timbers, and all western businesses currently in there "cultivating the land" by chopping down everything they see, should just pull out and raze some other third world country. That'll teach 'em.

Ah well, I suppose I can't hold that against them. I probably wouldn't have listened to the UN either.
