Sacrifice killings lend push for bill to eradicate blind faith - Mumbai - DNA

Hindus of All Castes and Sects Gather to Fight Proposed Laws Against Blind Faith
The Daily News and Analysis of Mumbai (click link above photo) reports that the Maharashtra Eradication of Blind Faith Bill has been given a boost by two recent "child sacrifices" in Nalasopara. Apparently this bill would make it illegal for a man to claim he is "God". It seems that this law might be a little overdue if such "God Men" are encouraging credulous parents to kill their children. Here's a bit of news to worried parents concerned about possessed children. All kids get evil from time to time. Don't freak out. It usually works out.

"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them."- James Baldwin
