Apparently “witches” getting abducted, stripped naked, and beheaded is not wholly uncommon in parts of India.
The Huckabee campaign posted this video to its youtube page yesterday. Amazingly, comments are enabled (probably to capture all that gosh darn persecution that happens whenever a Christian says something dumb/offensive): You got that?

An Australian man has been arrested and convicted for arranging a marriage between his 12 year-old daughter and a 26 year-old man.
