Blinded for ‘witchcraft’

Sunday, 22 May 2011

More religiously inspired violence and hatred, this time in India and all because the attackers were suffering money and health problems.

One good thing I suppose is that the perpetrators weren’t Christians with an enthusiasm for literal interpretation of their Bible or they might well have killed the victims instead of just gouging their eyes with scissors — ‘Though shalt not suffer a witch to live’ [Exodus 22:18]
