I’ve reported before about Pakistan’s government seeking our governments aid to attack what they deem as blasphemous content. They want most especially Facebook to report this as a crime. (Read)Now they are seeking WordPress to join in this persecution. Thankfully they have not yet. I’ve also reported at length about the hideous blasphemy laws in Pakistan. This law is aimed at targeting and killing Christians.
This morning I was notified by WordPress that Pakistan’s government is seeking to remove content from this blog for blasphemy. I Am Not Ashamed is being targeted. You need to pay attention to this. As our freedom of speech and freedom to worship, our freedom to spread the truth of the gospel is in grave danger. I will speak as long as I can but you need to pay attention. It’s here in America.
The email from support at WordPress.com was encrypted but here is the complaint against me.

A Pakistan authority has demanded that we disable the following content on your WordPress.com site:
While we have not complied, due to the order it is possible that your site could at some point in the future become inaccessible for Internet visitors originating from Pakistan. Visitors from outside of Pakistan would still be able to access the site.
You and your readers may be interested in these suggestions on bypassing Internet restrictions.
For your reference, we have included a copy of the complaint below. No reply is necessary, but please let us know if you have any questions.

Dear WordPress Team,

In lieu of above it is highlighted that few of the web pages hosted on your platform are extremely Blasphemous and are hurting the sentiments of many Muslims around Pakistan. The same has also been declared blasphemous under Pakistan Penal Code section 295- B and is in clear violation of Section 37 of Prevention of Electronic Crime Act (PECA) 2016 and Section 19 of Constitution of Pakistan.
Keeping above in view, It is requested to please support in removing following URL’s from your platform at earliest please.

The content in question is an image that states truth. That Jesus and Mohammed are not from the same family and includes Paul’s instruction. Galatians 4:31. Are we to strike the truth from the Bible? Muslims are allowed to say that Jesus is not Gods son and wasn’t crucified. They are allowed to say to slay all nonbelievers. While we are for love thy neighbor and spreading the Gospel of truth and good news and that is blasphemy? Pay attention.
I do thank WordPress for their stance on freedom of speech! And their suggestions on how to bypass internet restrictions. However this is something we all need to understand. How long before the Islamic nations like Pakistan actually succeed in sharia law for all? Speak out boldly for Christ. He is the only way to the Father, He is the Son Of God. I have one more question did the Pope just throw Christians under the bus with his new agreement with a Muslim Imam? Pray for Christians in Pakistan and all Islamic nations. Pray for America and speak while you still can.
