Prepare to be converted heathens! A statue in Mumbai has started leaking tears. Naturally, huge crowds gathered, people gathered the tears into vials, a modern miracle right in front of them. It was changing lives. You had better dust off that Bible.
Sanal Edamauku notices that this isn’t so much a grand miracle, a sign from almighty gods, but rather “some drainage run off.”
A heated debate began, in which the five church people, among them Fr. Augustine Palett, the priest of Our Lady of Velankanni church, and representatives of the Association of Concerned Catholics (AOCC) demanded that Sanal apologize. But Sanal refused and argued against them.
When they saw Sanal refused to bow to their demands, they threatened to file a blasphemy case against him. And they did.
