And yes, I do think the whole cutting off the facial extremities was unduly harsh, but I still think Judith deserved to pay in some way for what she did. Hey, we've all got something that really bothers us. There's a lot of people who still can't get over Rollo and the slave girl. With me, cheating really gets to me. Probably because I've seen so many family members have to deal with cheating spouses/partners.
Adultery was tantamount to treason back then. I would've preferred a different sort of punishment, but I get the feeling that Hirst wanted to show off how barbaric the Christian church could be. I think he went a little far though. It almost seems like the guy has it out for Christianity. And no, I'm not just being a whiny Christian. I consider myself Agnostic if anything.
Anyway, I don't think I've made myself popular here, so I think I'll just take a hiatus from posting.
