Save Sanal Edamaruku

Another petition for you, via the New Humanist:

We call on the Catholic Archdiocese of Bombay to withdraw their complaint against Indian Rationalist Sanal Edamaruku

You bet; I certainly call on the Catholic Archdiocese of Bombay to do that. Seriously? Edamaruku investigated a claim that a little statue of Mary was leaking tears, and he found that it was seepage from sewer water under the statue. That’s not a crime, to put it mildly, and the Catholic archdiocese has no business complaining about it.

Hey Catholic archdiocese of Bombay – I say the guy named Yeshua who was executed by the Romans 20 centuries ago is still dead, because dead people stay dead. Come and get me!

    Signed, thanks, Ophelia. Why are they complaining? I thought that the RCC had a commission to look into purported miracles so as to be able to confirm them one way or the other. Have they changed the rules, then, or am I mistaken? Or are they indignant that some unauthorised person is questioning their careless assumptions? Or annoyed that it’s sewer water and must blame the investigator? So whichever way they’re just human, then, and godliness doesn’t fit in anywhere, does it? Nasty thing to discover. Maybe they’d best shut up: they might give more away…
