Pakistan please release Christian woman
This is my open letter to the country of Pakistan to appeal for mercy for the woman
accused of "blasphemy" for saying prophet of Islam was human man and not GOD:
To the President of Pakistan who has the power to pardon the Christian woman who was involved in a word skirmish with another worker and who stated her religious opinion of who the man Mohammed was upon his death [mere mortal], I ask for the mercy Muslim people routinely say that is the very character of GOD HIMSELF. Does not your people say praises to Al-Lah the most merciful? Where is the mercy that Muslims want in America to practice and live by, and speak their beliefs? Where is the attitude of the President there that religious faith must be allowed even when different from Islam?
Where is religious liberty in Pakistan?
If Pakistan ever wants to be viewed by the world as just and righteous and fair, they must not imprison and punish religious or political speech. A strong nation could endure those liberties given to the people, and be better for it.
I am also Christian and I also believe that Mohammed was not GOD, but a mere mortal man who had revelations that seem to have included some divine teaching, as did the Old Testament prophets recorded in the Holy Bible. I read some of your Qu'ran tranlated to English to see for myself if it taught the worship of Mohammed, and it did not seem too, but I do not own a Qu'ran and was reading excerpts in English only, so what I read may not have been the whole picture at all, and in fact, I am sure it was not. But here's the thing : if your faith is real and IF your prophet were a true prophet-- man of GOD Christians would say--, then his legacy will stand the test of time and also criticism. If the governments of Saudi Arabia,Pakistan, and all Muslim countries have to protect the prophet from thought by non-muslims and or criticism from non-muslims, then the prophet must be mere mortal man after all,needing the protection of government enforced silence against him.
If your prophet's words cannot stand alone to defend his teaching, then he is nor a prophet of GOD, because GOD said HIS words do not return void or empty-handed but accomplish the will of GOD that GOD intended when HE spoke them to a prophet.
Here is a scripture, I want to share with you from the King James Holy Bible:
"..there is ONE body [of believers] and ONE Spirit; even as ye are called in ONE hope of your calling: ONE LORD, one faith,one baptism,ONE GOD AND FATHER of all, Who is above all, and through all, and in you all [if believers]." Ephesians 4:4-6
[JESUS said] he that is of GOD, heareth GOD's words; ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of GOD," John 8:47, KJV.
