This is Where "Blasphemy Laws" Lead

From boingboing.net:
Sanal Edamaruku, an Indian skeptic, went to Mumbai and revealed that a "miraculous" weeping cross was really just a bit of statuary located near a leaky drain whose liquid reached it by way of capillary action. The local Catholic Church demanded that he retract his statements, and when he refused, they had him arrested for blasphemy. 
So much for the vaunted religion that claims it has The Truth. Apparently when actual facts get in the way of that "truth", those inconvenient facts need to get removed, not by reason and argument, but by bullying.

Disgusting.
