Religion is stupid

Some Indian Christians have decided to starve themselves to death (a mortal sin according to their religous code) as a protest that a work of fiction is a work of fiction. Well at least they aren't out to kill anyone else.

I'm glad you recognize the innate superiority of Christianity of over Islam :)

Yes, it's stupid to starve yourself to death in an attempt to ban a stupid fictional film - even in a country where censorship for religious reasons is legal and normal. I'm a big fan of Ghandi (at least as presented by Richard Attenborough!) but I think I'd have ethical problems with going on a hungerstrike. To my mind at least there is no Christian precedent for it.

But if you're going to die for your faith, better to die like this than strapped to a bomb in a crowded train. At least they've got that much right - dying for something is better than killing for it. Ask Theo Van Gogh.

I think that you will find that I insulted all the worlds religions. And I'm not exactly a big fan of censorship either, where ever it is being practiced.Thoughs damn universal enlightenment values ;-)
