A Pakistani prosecutor has reportedly said he can "guarantee the acquittal" of 42 Christians charged with killing two men if they convert to Islam.

The group of Christians have been charged with lynching two men they suspected were involved in twin suicide bombings targeting a Sunday Mass at two churches in a Christian neighbourhood in Lahore on 15 March 2015.

According to the Pakistani newspaper the Express Tribune, the men remained silent in court after the proposal of acquittal was made to them until one of the accused, Irfan Masih, said he would rather be hanged than denounce Christianity.

Naseeb Anjum, counsel to some members of the group, said the judge had made the same proposition to the men six months ago.

He said it felt like the judge was blackmailing them before adding: "The government should get rid of such elements that bring bad name to the state by such acts."

Where are the social justice warriors of America, who pretend that they are @ the forefront of world human rights?  If this was about Jews or Muslims being threatened, we wouldn't here the end of it..But since it's trendy to crap on Christianity, all we're hearing is crickets.
