Hey, it's their culture, right?

Enshrined in the laws passed by their government, right? So who are we to judge?

This month a Pakistani court sentenced...45-year-old Asia Bibi, to death, not because she killed, injured or stole, but simply because she said something.
Prosecutors say Bibi, who is a Christian, broke Pakistan's strict blasphemy law by insulting Islam and the prophet Muhammad, a crime punishable by death or life imprisonment according to Pakistan's penal code.
Now, I'm sure you longtime readers remember one Ladd Everitt mewling about "Second Amendment remedies." Well, it deserves to be asked what those like him would do if our democratically elected government got to the point of passing laws like this. It'd be a long process, considering something like the above-mentioned law is blatantly unconstitutional in the United States, but it's still a question worth asking.
