Religion of Peace update: Unsatisfied with blowing up Jews, Christians or Buddhists, those adherents to the "Religion of Peace," aka Islam, have decided to blow up some of their own.
A suicide attack today in a mosque packed with worshipers killed more than 30 people and sent enraged Shiite Muslims on a rampage through the capital of Baluchistan province in southwestern Pakistan, officials said.
Reports of the death toll varied, and some put it as high as 47. Scores were wounded in the attack, one of the bloodiest in a long series of assaults on the country's Shiite minority.
There was no claim of responsibility, but the information minister, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, said the attack was carried out by "sectarian elements," a reference to outlawed extremist groups of the Sunni Muslim majority, suspected in most of the previous attacks.
And these people are worried about Christian "crusaders" from the U.S.? When was the last time a bunch of Methodists went and blew up a Lutheran church?
