Religion of Peace Update

A Baptist lay pastor in Bangladesh was beheaded by a group of assailants reportedly tied to a Muslim political party bent on creating a radical Islamic state.

Dulal Sarkar, 35, was the second Christian leader killed in the Asian country in the past year, according to Compass Direct, a U.S.-based news service that monitors persecution of Christians.

Sarkar was attacked as he returned home from discussing his faith with villagers near Jalalpur.

This will likely be the only report of this you will see. The EM continues to be much more enamoured with storys of US soldiers "mishandling" the Koran and alleged rights abuses of detainees.
