Once again 93 innocent have fallen victims in the name of religion in Pakistan.

A man arrives at the gates of Heaven.
He was asked, “Religion?”

A fourth man arrives at the gates.

“Well, the Muslims are in Room 5 and they think they’re the only ones here!”

Sovereignty Belongs to God – By: Hakim Hazik
God does not normally communicate with politicians these days. There are people who claim to be directly in communication with God.
