The insidiousness nature of evil?
It’s so very simple.
Because you see…
It can come in so very many horrible, horrible forms.
[via Daily Mail] Female pupils have been sent home from a school in Zimbabwe after they told their teachers they had been attacked by goblins, it has emerged.
Education officials have launched an investigation into claims small creatures repeatedly terrorised students at the council-run St Sebastian School near the southern city of Bulawayo.
The Bulawayo Chronicle reported that the tiny beasts appeared before the frightened girls as humans before turning into baboons.
A parent told the newspaper one girl fell into a trance after being possessed by the goblins.
The parent, who declined to be named, said: ‘I think that the pupil was possessed by demons.
‘She fell into a trance and then all of a sudden she started screaming and kicking into the air vigorously for about five minutes.
‘She did not say anything during the fit.
‘When she recovered, she said she had seen a baboon trying to slap her.’
The Bulawayo Chronicle reported that the girls believed the goblins were only visible to their victims.[Read More]
Where some forms of evil?
Are so very much more frightening…
Than all others?
[via ABC News Go] Prosecutors urged jurors Tuesday to dismiss a murder defendant’s assertions that an angel who looked like Olivia Newton-John ordered him to fatally shoot a co-worker’s husband outside a preschool. They say Hemy Neuman was not delusional or insane and had planned the killing for months.
Neuman fell so hopelessly in love with Andrea Sneiderman, whom he supervised at General Electric, that he believed he was the father of her two children and that the only way to protect them was to kill Russell Sneiderman in November 2010, Neuman’s attorney Doug Peters said during opening arguments.
“He thought Sophia and Ian were his children and that Rusty Sneiderman was a danger to them,” said Peters, who contends his client is not guilty by reason of insanity because he couldn’t tell the difference between right and wrong at the time of the killing.
Neuman believed an angel told him to pull the trigger, said Peters, who didn’t give many details about the vision. He said only that Neuman told mental health experts that he killed Sneiderman “because that’s what the angel told him to do.”
Prosecutors, though, urged jurors to reject the insanity claim, arguing the 49-year-old Neuman meticulously planned the killing so he could be with Andrea Sneiderman. Prosecutors said Neuman will also claim he was visited by a demon who sounded like Barry White. [Read More]
Damn you, Olivia Newton-John, I say.
