Asia Bibi, a 45-year-old mother-of-five, denies blasphemy and told investigators that she was being persecuted for her faith in a country where Christians face routine harassment and discrimination.
Christian groups and human rights campaigners condemned the verdict and called for the blasphemy laws to be repealed.
Her supporters say she will now appeal against the sentence handed down in a local court in the town of Sheikhupura, near Lahore, Pakistan.
Ashiq Masih, her husband, said he had not had the heart to break the news to two of their children.
"I haven't told two of my younger daughters about the court's decision," he said. "They asked me many times about their mother but I can't get the courage to tell them that the judge has sentenced their mother to capital punishment for a crime she never committed." Mrs Bibi has been held in prison since June last year.
Christian woman sentenced to death in Pakistan 'for blasphemy'
Also, Pakistan is a U.S. "ally", so I'm sure this will all go unnoticed by our own government. Meanwhile we send our troops to die in Afghanistan in the fight for freedom and democracy!
Notice in the article that Bret "Ginx" Alan's heroes, the cops, come to the woman's rescue, but as always, when you rely on the State's agents to "protect" you, they betray you. They're just there to make kidnapping and murder "legal", nothing more.
