    According to Voice of the Martyrs, Shahbaz was arrested in June 2001 after using the restroom at a mosque.

    "Qari Rafique, the head of the mosque, asked him why he was using the toilet that was adjacent to the mosque. He quizzed Shahbaz on whether he was a Christian because he was wearing a cross around his neck," a Pakistani information source told VOM.

    Rafique subsequently made a series of false accusations against Shahbaz, including statements to authorities that he "disgraced" the Quran by tearing pages out, cutting them into pieces and trampling them under his feet, the source reported.

    His arrest followed immediately, and he later was charged, tried, convicted and sentence to life in prison for his "crime," according to VOM.

    I also read that a Pakistani Christian was beaten because he drank from a water fountain that was near a mosque.

    The persecution of Christians has been going on since the church was established around 30 A.D.

    It is awful but Jesus told us it would take place from the get-go.

    Almost identical to the way it used to be for Jews in Christian Europe. Of course, they generally killed them for evading the laws of the Ghetto.

    It is a shame, but Christianity is the religion that is routinely persecuted by everyone else . . . and sometimes even from within.

    I realize that the Jews have a persecution complex, and they have faced more than their share of persecution.

    Sometimes. Christians have, in the last hundred years or so, become considerably more Christian in regard to tolerance.

    It wasn't always that way. A few hundred years ago, Christians were more like the Muslims in that regard.

    Ironically, the Muslims then were more tolerant than the Christians. Jews, for example, often fled Christian Europe to Muslim nations to escape intolerance.

    It is a mistake to forget history.
