Thanks for the update, it was thought at first he was drunk, turns out he was high, which still does not invalidate the reality that he thought claiming religious revelation was a legitimate excuse or mitigation, for committing homicide that was likely to gain him more leniency than admitting it was a fight over a dinner . Please bear in mind also India is still basically a Hindu theocracy. The new Indian Express is a mouth piece for the Indian National Congress and so is happy to defend the national religion from disparagement. It is always good to look at both side of a story and make a truly informed decision before decrying a story in Trumpian terms as "Fake News" especially when the facts of the matter are essentially true. i.e. A man was beheaded on temple grounds by another who claimed, initially, in an inebriated state, to have done it as a act of human sacrifice, to end corona virus.

LenHazell53 replies on Jun 3, 2020:
@johan17 But you are arrogant enough to ignore the scientific method? If there is insufficient evidence to prove the existence of something the default position is to accept that he unproven thing does not exist until such time as there is reason to think it might, NOT o dither and assume it does just incase. Do you hold that some day fairies might be proven to exist and so you are agnostic about them? Do you hold that ALL god "might" exist so are agnostic about all of them? Does your agnostisism hold universal for all purported mythical creatures being and things? Of course not, you are obviously not stupid, so why the special pleading for A God? Perhaps you should examine what it is that puts you in such a frame of mind? Fear, peer pressure, caution?

@lerlo I am not saying that no religious person can have any morals, simply that if a religious person holds to the doctrines and principles laid down by their religion no one, including themselves, can ever be sure of their motivation, since religious indoctrination starts at birth. Conversely a person, a secular person can be certain on ethical and moral matters that they behave in the way that they do is by choice, (criminal matters however are of course subject to the threat of litigation but these of course are real and based on the threat to common well being rather that to the abstract idea of sin.)

I was about to point this out to. However, I would also point out that in this day and age, with widely available contraception for both the male and the female, in the west at least there is no excuse for unwanted pregnancies. When they do occur the blame falls squarely on the parents, both of them, as does the consequent responsibility. When religion interferes with the use of contraception, family planning and support, the male and female parent should ignore religion in favour of responsible behaviour. Should either potential parent refuse to do so, the other partner should simply refuse to participate or accept responsibility.

This would have led to a stalemate, with NI and Scotland voting remain Wales being too close to call and England voting leave. However Cameron insisted on counting the votes of all 4 together resulting in a tiny minority winning on the leave side. 17,410,742 votes to leave and 16,141,241 to remain, a margin of 1,269,501 votes, out of a total population of 66,000,000.

@RussRAB Such behaviour is known as the "No true Scotsman" logical fallacy, a form of circular argument, based on the addition of ad hoc "presuppositions" after the fact. eg Premise: All Scotsmen eat porridge Counter argument: Some Scotsmen do not eat porridge Fallacy: By not eating porridge they prove themselves to not be "true scotsmen" and are therefore do not invalidate the original premise.

@Lorajay @Lorajay "fetistic scopophillia" the act of carrying a metaphorical phallus like object in public in order to be seen as powerful and threatening. A technique often used in film and theatre to establish the main male or female protagonist upon their first appearance by metaphorically masculating them. See especially the films of Billy Wilder.

@altschmerz What amazes me is that under UK law this man was allowed to be a teacher of religious education, but had he been a Roman catholic he would have been barred from the profession in state schools, as it is illegal for "papists" to teach religious education, because it will corrupt children.

@altschmerz Unusually she actually and sincerely believed what she was teaching, so a genuine paradox for her was genuinely upsetting. She took a leave of absence for a while, the rumour was that she suffered a breakdown. She was replaced by a red haired and bearded Presbyterian Scott called Mr. McLeod, a name he pronounced MuClued! only person I ever met who could speak an exclamation mark. He was the very epitome of a "Holy Terror", a crack shot with a piece of chalk and never afraid to personally damn you to hell for being a clever dick sassenach heathen. I recall him locking away all of the KJV versions of the bible we normally used and proclaiming from the Geneva version, claiming the other translations were Papist and and english corrupted filth. I think he must have been wee Free church because according to this loon every one was going to Hell, and the quicker the better if he had anything to do with it. He did not last long after parents petitioned for his removal and the return of Mrs. Pettigrew.

@WonderWartHog99 back in those day of Dickens for the poor at least almost every offence was a capital crime. The Judgement of Death Act 1823 made the death penalty discretionary for **all** crimes except treason and murder for which it was mandatory. The only alternative was deportation to a penal colony unless you were rich or a freemason when it might be commuted to a small fine or restitution payments to the victim or service in the armed forces, but in most cases a rich person would simply be acquitted for one reason or another.

@TheMiddleWay There are nine Greek words used in the new testament translated as Punishment in the KJV and the Douay Rheims Bibles they are **dike, penalty ekdikeo, to visit justice upon ekdikesis, to have justice kolazo, to chasten kolasis, Discipline epitimia, due penance paideuo, Educate timoreo, to Correct timoria, retribution** In other translations they are given better more accurate renditions None of them describe the sort of horror story you are talking about.

@TheMiddleWay Luke 16:19-31 explicitly says this in the parable of the rich man and Yes Pope Francis did say this and has been getting flack for it ever since, because "damnation of the unlearned" is a cardinal sin and has been since it was reconcecreted in Vatican II (1965) and had been before that for almost seventeen hundred years but was prior to 65 able to be avoided by penitent prayers while in purgatory if you were willing to pay for them.

Burning someone in Hell for all eternity is definitely not a sign of unconditional love, or love of any kind, it is disproportionate, cruel and unusual *"severe punishment"*, if it can be called punishment at all, since the point of punitive measures are to correct and reform behaviour, if the punishment is eternal then that can never be the case and so is simply vengeful unending torture, for the sake of being cruel. I repeat this god is a dick, it is a mystery to me why people worship this fuck out of anything but fear.

I retired early eleven years ago to care for sick family members and help raise my grandchildren. In all that time I can honestly count the amount of pleasant and respectful regular customers on the fingers of both hands.

LenHazell53 replies on May 6, 2020:
@altschmerz Yup the guy who wrote that article is simply parroting the Catholic church official line while claiming to be an atheist combatting "revisionist" history. The facts actually speak for themselves, if all of Cornwell's book is disregarded, Pius DID make a deal with both the German's and the British not to bomb Rome promising both that upon their inevitable victory God and the church would reward them. He did pursue and gain a Concordat with the Nazi government, He was photographed with and entertained many high ranking Nazi officials including allowing an ambassador from Nazi germany to live in the Vatican in his own apartments an honour not granted to any other countries ambassador. He did start and run a Vatican radio station (and Newspaper), which praised the Nazi's of Europe and promised the church's neutrality. After the allies moved troops into (now non Nazi) Italy for the final invasion, Pacelli (Pope) did write to Eisenhower pointing out that an "enlightened" man like the general would respect the papal request that no "Negro animal" soldiers be allowed in to Rome in the occupying forces as this would inevitably lead to cultural vandalism and a plague of rape in the holy city needless to say the request was made public and ignored. While at the same time he the pope was sheltering both the Nazi ambassador to Rome and the former nazi Ambassador to the Vatican inside the walls of the Vatican, under the law of sanctuary. Though it is true many Catholic priests and to a lesser extent some bishops and cardinals did help Jews, gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses and homosexuals escape the persecution in acts of personal bravery and to their great person honour, many others adhered to the Vatican directive of non interference in Nazi policy, and in some cases such Clergy as did follow their conscience were either disciplined by the church or left to their fate at the hands of the Gestapo or SS. It is certainly true that most who did resist official church policy were after the war destined to serve in more lowly capacities for the rest of Pius's tenure are Pontiff, to teach them the import of obedience to the divine will. Speaking of which it is interesting that the oft spoken of Doctrine of papal infallibility, usually believed to have originated from the middle ages was actually an invention (or at least a massive corruption of existing doctrine) by Pius XII (A scholar of ecclesiastical law) used to consolidate his position and to prevent the conclave of cardinals over ruling some of his more excessive pronouncements, such as for example the biggest, most expensive and lavish Papal coronation ever seen, for his own inauguration, which included being pulled and pushed through the vatican on an 18 foot tall golden throne.
