"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

In Pakistan: they burn churches and Bibles

This news alert I've got from JihadWatch.org taken from Daily Times:

Miscreants set ablaze church near Chowkandi

KARACHI: Anger and tension spread among Christians when miscreants in Shah Latif Town allegedly set a church on fire on Saturday. According to the police, they have registered FIR No 676/10 on the complaint of Priest Peter Shahzad against unidentified persons. The complainant in the FIR informed the police that some unidentified persons entered the church located near Chowkandi Graveyard, Sector 19-B in the Shah Latif police jurisdiction and torched it before fleeing. Several sacred and holy books burnt in the ensuing inferno hurting the sentiments of the local Christians. Following the incident a heavy contingent of law enforcers were dispatched to the area to avoid any law and order situation. However, no major incident or rioting was reported till the filing of this report.

Will any moderate Muslim stand up and condemn this?
