Quote of the Day: 'Blasphemer'

Quote of the Day:

"One who supports a blasphemer is also a blasphemer. What Qadri did has made every Muslim proud."

--Statement from a group of 500 Pakistani "religious scholars" (i.e., murderous fanatics), commenting on the assassination of Salman Taseer, a relentlessly secular politician who was shot more than two dozen times by one of his guards, Mumtaz Qadri. The Pakistan Daily Times headlined the act: "A brave man cut down by fanaticism."
