Dangers of christianity

Loved this late breaking news in The Oz.

Woman killed by falling crucifix

August 11, 2005

A WOMAN attending a mass in honour of the local patron saint in a Sardinian village died today when a crucifix fell on her, reports said.

The 38-year-old was attending the mass with her two children, aged nine and 18 months, to celebrate the feast of San Lorenzo, patron saint of the village of Mogorella, near Cagliari, on Italy's Mediterranean island.

She had been unable to find a place inside the church and was following the service from the steps outside when part of the cornice and a crucifix tore from the facade and fell on her, killing her instantly.

No one else was hurt.

Looks like an act of God to me. See what happens when you don't go to confession before mass...

Forgive me father because I have sinned, it is 20 seconds since my last confession and I have failed to burn a witch, stone an adulteress or own slaves. I'm a baaaad Christian!!!
