Religious man is crushed by giant crucifix, has leg amputated.
"A deeply religious man in upstate New York who believes a church's giant crucifix cured his wife of cancer had his own leg amputated after the same crucifix collapsed on top of him."

I love news reports like this.

I don't! I get no joy in any assumedly decent person getting their leg crushed.

What I find funny.. to the ironic situation.. is now that he lost his leg..
NO amount of prayers, or holy water or anything is going to give this man's leg back.

RE: Religious man is crushed by giant crucifix, has leg amputated.
The rest of the article is far more interesting. He's suing the church for 3 million. So, the crucifix cures your wife of cancer, it's god's will, but if it falls over on you, it's negligence. If he wins the suit, does that mean the thing falling on him is also god's will? Maybe him losing his leg was just a vehicle for god to demonstrate his overly complex, Rube Goldberg-esque plan for getting this guy some dough (though at the expense of one of his churches).

RE: Religious man is crushed by giant crucifix, has leg amputated.
There is some kind of argument in here that it makes no sense to credit god for the cancer cure but to blame the hospital for the leg crushing.

On a side note, B. C., you missed the boat: http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...g+crucifix.

I get my news from Yahoo. They're a little behind on news stories, due to in-depth coverage of the Kardashians.

Religion crushes his leg, science keeps him alive.

Nope it was jesus that kept him alive and gave him the strength to go on without his leg.
Somehow he had nothing to do with the accident though...or if he did it was for some mystical purpose that can't be explained.
