In the name of the God of the desert

Our country is not the only place where religious fanatics continue to use murderous violence to enforce their barbaric taboos. Just this weekend:

In Gojra, Pakistan, a Muslim mob incited by clergy set fires in a Christian neighborhood and burned eight Christians to death over a mere rumor that a copy of the Koran had been desecrated.

In Tel Aviv, Israel, a masked gunman opened fire on a gay youth center, killing two and wounding fifteen (since the gunman has not yet been caught, it's not known whether he's Jewish or Muslim).
