    There is a similar story that occurred a month ago in India that fits this scenario. Thieves cut off a Holyman's leg who claimed had healing powers in that leg. Not only that, but the thieves made off with it.

    Crazy stuff.

    He's just following the rules, isn't he? Shouldn't all of us be doing this too? I mean it's right there in unequivocal black and white.

    And if it offend thee from a distance, reach for it with thine remaining virtuous hand,
    And cast it into a hell of blood-boiling microwaves...

    ...cook on high power for 17 minutes or until crispy.

    You can crisp things in a microwave?

    And Gokul,
    that's disgusting.

    The person did not follow it enough.

    Matthew 5:29

    "If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell."

    But wait, this might be one of those "symbolic" verses :biggrin:

    There are many people that insist the Bible must be interpreted literally, yet verses like these make me wonder how they could possibly think this?!

    The answer is simple: They don't bring it up.

    You know, Pepperidge Farm Brand Microwave Chicken Pot Pies actually get really crispy when cooked in a microwave!

    So, if you forget how to make severed hands crispy in a microwave, just know that......

    I couldn't resist, sorry!
