On murder and a high court ruling


Last week's newsletter from the Birmingham Oratory has a good article with the intriguing title A Murder and a High Court Ruling. The article looks at the murder or Shahbaz Bhatti and the case of Eunice and Owen Johns, making the observation:
Three hundred and fifty-eight British troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan so that Afghanistan, and by extension, Pakistan, might live free from religious extremism in the kind of society that Shabbaz Bhatti also died trying to bring about. This is ironic, fighting for freedoms abroad that we are starting to deny at home.
