The story gives an overview of the insane charges laid against Indian Rationalist Sanal Edamaruku, who has been forced into exile for demonstrating that a crying Jesus in Mumbai was actually weeping tears of raw sewage. The local church priest was giving the faithful this water to drink for healing purposes, by the way. So, as he says in the video, he was doing these people a favour.
But the'll have none of this. He's being charged with Deliberately hurting religious feelings and attempting malicious acts intended to outrage the religious sentiments. Well that's what you get for telling people they're drinking shit water. Sound a little familiar?
It's the Catholic Christian Secular Forum that's pressing these charges. Just listen to Joseph Dias, representative of the group:
Sanal should realize that his right to expression must not encroach on my right to freedom of faith, of belief, of religion which is guaranteed under the Indian constitution.In other words, his right to be deluded into thinking that the water coming out of a statue are the tears of a two-thousand year old fictional character rather than sewage. Of course, Sanal isn't preventing them from going back to this false belief - he was just trying to discover the truth and share it with them. But it would appear searching for the truth and sharing it with others is about the worst thing you can do - according to these people at least.
