Blinded for ‘witchcraft’
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]
Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.
I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
Searching Scribblings is not available at the moment.
