Comments: more media coverage of the attack on Christians in Peshawar

I hope I'm one of many to comment on this appalling tragedy. The spectre of global Islamic jihad looms large, both at home and abroad.

Whether this is published or not, it is a stern reminder that some are still called to sacrifice even existence in this life for the eternal hope of the next.

May they rest in peace and divine assurance.

All Christians in Pakistan should be offered asylum in the population shrinking west.

The USA wories about Iran. This is the country they should worry about.

"All Christians in Pakistan should be offered asylum in the population shrinking west."

I expect they would get it if they applied. But why should they and persecuted people (not just Christians!) in other countries want to leave their home countries and move to completely different cultures, especially one like Britain that has just sent vans around London telling foreigners to go home and where anti immigration policies are becoming more and more popular?

It would be good for everyone if we did more to help other countries to be safe and economically viable for their own population.
