Tripoli Six Sentenced To Death

Lou FCD
I suppose we all knew this was going to happen. This is what happens when science and reality are beholden to politics.

Via CNN,

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — A court on Tuesday convicted five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor of deliberately infecting 400 children with the HIV virus and condemned them to death, provoking shouts of approval from the children’s relatives.

The father of one of the infected boys immediately shouted “God is great” and “Long live the Libyan judiciary”.

.

Obviously, they have some serious problems with reality over there. I find it interesting that fundamental religiosity is so often tied to denial of science and denial of reality. It’s happening in Libya, and it’s happening here.

.

Allow me to reiterate from my previous guest post here at UDoJ.

.

“Scientific ignorance is not just amusing, it’s not just dangerous, it’s deadly. This is a prime example of what sorts of things happen when people who ignore science to promote an agenda gain power. This is exactly why we need to fight so hard to keep religious fundamentalists and other scientifically ignorant scumbag whack jobs from gaining control, in the political forum or the educational one.”

.

Let me also repoint you to the Nature article with the details of the story.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Andrea Bottaro, at The Panda’s Thumb, also gives the link for Amnesty International, and in the comments, a link to a documentary on the subject.

    Indeed. It’s also disgusting that the sunuvabitch in charge over there is demanding that Scotland release the terrorists who bombed that airplane over Lockarbee, and like $5.7 billion in “compensation to the families of the infected children” as payment for the release of these innocent health care workers.

    Government level blackmail.

    Bulgaria has refused to pay it, saying that it would be an admission of guilt. I think the Scots just laughed at them. As far as I can find on the web, they didn’t even dignify that with a response.

    And if they were crazy enough to pay it, I’m sure none of that money would get to the families, anyway.

    I hate politicians. Is that wrong?

  3. JanieBelle says:

    Nah, politicians are fair game. So are preachers.

  4. honestpoet says:

    Good thing, since both those types are my primary targets! (And they sure do make it too easy.)
