Magician Wayne Houchin was deliberately set on fire by the host of a TV show in the Dominican Republic. The host said he was going to give Wayne a blessing, set some Water de Florida cologne on fire and poured it on Wayne's head. Wayne suffered severe burns on his head, neck, face and left hand. The host did what he did because he believed that Wayne was practicing voodoo and the black arts.A guy who entertains people doing tricks was set on fir for doing evil magic.The ignorance and stupidity in the world sometimes astounds me. That people will do things like this, and far worse, because of their belief in nonsense just makes me so angry.

People who seem little bothered by The Crusades, The Inquisition, the Native American genocide, etc. (i.e., Christians) would hardly be shamed by a small incident like this.  The Abrahamic religions are anti-human - immoral - to their core.  

This is taking baptism a bit too far.
