You will search the New Testament in vain for any instructions as to how to put the whammy on your neighbor. So how does something like this happen in a Christian country?
Yeah, yeah, all you humanist hormads out there, I know what you’re gonna say: “How dare you call this a Christian country?” Hiss, hiss, gollum-gollum. But you’re missing the point. Your religion, Science–it doesn’t recognize the power of voodoo dolls, does it?
I think this incident was a cultural warning signal. Not that anybody paid attention.
