So much for being nice. And let's hear it for voodoo, shall we?
The voodoo grandma who stood by while her 6-year-old granddaughter was set ablaze in a bizarre demon-casting ritual was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday.Man, you guys love this shit. You weren't trying to kill her, dearie, you did it because, in the year 2011, your dumb ass still believes in "evil spirits" - lock her up. Throw away the key. Let's do lunch, her treat.
Sylvenie Thessier was led from a Queens courtroom in tears after Justice Richard Buchter scolded her for not getting Frantzcia Saintil medical attention.
"That child deserved to be cared for and deserved to have her wounds treated," Buchter said.
Thessier, 71, pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment for the June 2009 incident.
The child's mother poured rum over her head and lit her on fire to drive out evil spirits - and Thessier only doused her with water and put her to sleep, prosecutors said.
Thessier, a native of Haiti, admitted she was negligent. "But I didn't do it on purpose," she said.
I mean, why do women even deal in religion?
That's never made sense to me:
Former President Jimmy Carter says much of the discrimination and abuse suffered by women around the world is attributable to a belief "that women are inferior in the eyes of God."But rather than saying, "To hell with this!" women will either try to change religion (good luck with that) or they've invented their own wacky shit.
Carter said such teachings by "leaders in Christianity, Islam and other religions" allow men to beat their wives and deny women their fundamental rights as human beings.
Both approaches are the height of stupidity. Just drop it.
One of India's best-known spiritual leaders, famous for his apparent miracles and long list of influential followers, is on life support in a southern hospital, officials said on Tuesday.Yeah, like all the rest, the old pedophile can do every trick in the book - especially fooling the lamers - but he can't perform the most important one:
Satya Sai Baba, 85, who has devotees in more than 100 countries, was admitted to a hospital funded by his organisation in the town of Puttaparthi with lung and chest congestion on March 28.
His condition has since deteriorated and he is now on a ventilator and is receiving kidney dialysis, the most recent health bulletin from the hospital said on Tuesday.
He remains "critical," although his "level of consciousness has considerably improved" and his vital systems are "stable", said the update from the Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences.
You fools will catch on one day,...
