Indian skeptic charged with "blasphemy" for revealing secret behind "miracle" of weeping cross

Link to article on RichardDawkins.net
Sanal Edamaruku, an Indian skeptic, went to Mumbai and revealed that a 'miraculous' weeping cross was really just a bit of statuary located near a leaky drain whose liquid reached it by way of capillary action. The local Catholic Church demanded that he retract his statements, and when he refused, they had him arrested for blasphemy.
At least we don't have to worry about charges of blasphemy in the U.S.  We only have to contend with allegations of intolerance when we point out the glaring flaws in religion.
