Bless me father for I have punched

Several newspapers report today (e.g. here and here) that a British judge this week chose not to jail a violent criminal because he was religious.

The judge said “You are a religious man and you know this is not acceptable behaviour.”

The fact that the judge in question is Cherie Blair, wife of former-prime minister Tony Blair, just confirms that this couple appear able to justify almost anything in their own minds based upon their beliefs and superstitions.

Apparently the UK’s National Secular Society has complained about it, but in true British don’t-kick-up-a-fuss tradition not much more will happen.

So remember: before violently assaulting someone in Britain, say a prayer. No, not to ask for any sort of forgiveness for what you will do, just pray that you get this lunatic women as your judge afterwards.
