Death Sentence for "Blasphemous" Christian Couple in Pakistan
Pakistan continues to be a hotbed of blasphemy prosecutions. A few weeks ago, Religion Clause Blog posted about a Christian couple charged with sending blasphemous text messages. The couple were convicted and sentenced to death, even though they asserted that the phone the texts were sent from had been missing for a month and that the texts were written in a language they could not speak or write. An appeal is planned.
