Her appeal was thrown out and her execution sentence upheld. I gather the judicial process has now been exhausted. Political pressure now seems to be the only way of saving this Christian mom accused of blasphemy in Pakistan.

Religious Exemptions Removed!
The Australia federal Labor government is pushing ahead with its proposal to ADD 'sexual orientation' and gender identity' as protected attributes to federal anti-discrimination laws.
The government had initially proposed wide-ranging changes to the anti-discrimination laws - including combining all the discrimination laws from five Acts. However, due to public outcry at the restrictions they would place on freedom of speech and freedom of religion, the Labor government ditched the proposals - ALL EXCEPT the addition of sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex to the current Sex Discrimination Act.
Outraged parents say a New York middle school instructed young female students to ask one another for a lesbian kiss " and boys learned how to spot young sluts " in an anti-bullying presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation, according to Fox News" Todd Starnes.

A controversy is brewing over three reputable Christian organizations, which are based in North America, whose efforts have ousted the words "Father" and "Son" from new Bibles. Wycliffe Bible Translators, Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) and Frontiers are under fire for "producing Bibles that remove "Father," "Son" and "Son of God" because these terms are offensive to Muslims."
Concerned Christian missionaries, Bible translators, pastors, and national church leaders have come together with a public petition to stop these organizations. They claim a public petition is their last recourse because meetings with these organizations' leaders, staff resignations over this issue and criticism and appeals from native national Christians concerned about the translations "have failed to persuade these agencies to retain "Father" and "Son" in the text of all their translations."
Biblical Missiology, a ministry of Boulder, Colorado-based Horizon International, is sponsoring the petition.
The main issues of this controversy surround new Arabic and Turkish translations. Here are three examples native speakers give:
First, Wycliffe and SIL have produced Stories of the Prophets, an Arabic Bible that uses an Arabic equivalent of "Lord" instead of "Father" and "Messiah" instead of "Son."
Second, Frontiers and SIL have produced Meaning of the Gospel of Christ , an Arabic translation which removes "Father" in reference to God and replaces it with "Allah," and removes or redefines "Son." For example, the verse which Christians use to justify going all over the world to make disciples, thus fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) reads, "Cleanse them by water in the name of Allah, his Messiahand his Holy Spirit" instead of "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Rev. Bassam Madany, an Arab American who runs Middle East Resources, terms these organization's efforts as "a western imperialistic attempt that's inspired by cultural anthropology, and not by biblical theology."
Third, Frontiers and SIL have produced a new Turkish translation of the Gospel of Matthew that uses Turkish equivalents of "guardian" for "Father" and "representative" or "proxy" for "Son." To Turkish church leader Rev. Fikret BÃƒÂ¶cek, "This translation is 'an all-American idea' with absolutely no respect for the 'sacredness' of Scripture, or even of the growing Turkish church."
SIL has issued a public response stating "all personnel subscribe to a statement of faith which affirms the Trinity, Christ's deity, and the inspiration of Scripture." However, in the same statement, which is similar to Wycliffe's, it claims "word-for-word translation of these titles would communicate an incorrect meaning (i.e. that God had physical, sexual relationships with Mary) [sic]," thus justifying substituting "Father" and "Son" in new translations. Calls and emails to Wycliffe and SIL to clarify their positions were not returned. Frontiers responded to calls with articles that critics have already dismissed as skirting omissions of "Father" and "Son" in new Bible translations.
Moriel (UK) supports the boycott of Tesco in response to their financial support of the London homosexual & lesbian parade. Retailers should not be taking sides in a culture war of moral values. Tesco has not responded to Judeo-Christian objections. There are alternative competitors who are just as price competitive for shopping as Tesco who are not so engaged.
AIDS & HIV are de-populating Africa. In Africa however, unlike in the developed world, HIV infection is not statistically related to a homosexual lifestyle. As if enough Black Africans are not dead from AIDS The British government of David Cameron wants to use economic and political coercion to change African laws concerning sodomy which is largely alien to African culture.
This is Cameron's new face of racist colonialist imperialism at its most outrageous worst. To force a homosexual moral agenda on an African culture and threaten assistance to the poor to force their acquiescenceÃ‚Â to it is nothing less than satanic. We urge prayer that God will raise His Hand against Cameron in judgment and that African governments will resist this pressure.

Imagine being fired from your job because you believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman. In an unbelievable case involving the well known corporation Cisco, my friend Frank Turek experienced the real world consequences of losing income solely because he held a view of marriage that was considered bigoted by one employee of Cisco. I implore you to take a couple of minutes and read what happened to Frank here.
Christians need to understand what is going on here.
The homosexual lobby in this country is becoming more powerful and more brazen in their efforts to punish and intimidate anyone who disagrees with them. We (AFA) are hearing from employees who are being forced to attend "diversity" and "sensitivity" classes or else lose their job. Just this week we got a letter from a doctor at a children's hospital in Ohio who sent us a picture of a "gay pride" exhibit on prominent display inside the hospital.
I urge you today to take a moment and let the decision makers at Cisco hear from you. If we don't start to speak up and fight back we are going to continue to lose and one day soon it will be illegal to preach against homosexuality from the pulpit. That day is coming. Frank was treated unjustly and unfairly (fired) just because he held traditional views on marriage.
TAKE ACTION and send this Action Alert to as many people as you can. Frank's story can serve a great purpose if we can get it across the country.
