Kill and Cure

On the subject of the misinterpretation of Christianity, and in stark contrast to the article mentioned in my last post, this story on the BBC news site tells of a Romanian nun who died recently during an 'exorcism'.

She was schizophrenic, and apparently the Romanian Orthodox priest decided that she was possessed by the devil, and should undergo exorcism by crucifixion, during which she died.

The priest, apparently, is unrepentant, saying that she has been freed from her ailment, and that his methods are standard practice in Romania.

Odd that religion should get such bad press in the world, isn't it.
