Catholic officials in India have miracle-disprover arrested for blasphemy

From Boing Boing via Christian Nightmares.

Sanal Edamaruku, an Indian skeptic, went to Mumbai and revealed that a “miraculous” weeping cross was really just a bit of statuary located near a leaky drain whose liquid reached it by way of capillary action. The local Catholic Church demanded that he retract his statements, and when he refused, they had him arrested for blasphemy.

Funny how the number of miraculous events have decreased in the age of documentation…

  1. That is bizarre. Why is India arresting people for blashpemy against Christianity?

    Also, what’s with that music on the news broadcast?
