Anne gave us the link:
"http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=48926"

Everyone go read that article. It's funny. Here is an example from the article

"Some 240,000 of them made decisions for Him in only three days of a crusade in Lahore, the capital, in November. "

Lahore has become the capital of Pakistan (not Islamabad)? LOL. 240,000 converts to Christianity in 3 days in Pakistan? Yeah, sure ;) Funny part is that people like Anne are gullible enough that they will believe that. Whatever makes them happy I guess.

Even if there were '240,000' people in this 'crusade' (the word used in the article) -- they were probably Pakistani Christians. There are after all 2 million Christians in Pakistan (they are not Muslim 'converts' but these Christians have been in Pakistan/India before 1947 Indian partition). And how did the guy count it and got the number 240,000 anyway? Miracle of Jesus? LOL. Sometimes you have to wonder if people can really be this stupid to believe whatever they read.
