Why?

Reader comment on item: Aztecs, Moors, and Christians: Festivals of Reconquest in Mexico and Spain
in response to reader comment: Is rape alright, and slavery isn't?

My sister, why would you assume that because this man shares the name of a criminal, you would cast dispersions on him? Have you done any research to answer that question before raising it in this forum where so many seem eager to gain accurate knowledge. How can you identify yourself as Woman against ignorance and cast such unfounded slanders on a man's name and reputation? I would suggest, for your own benefit and for the benefit of those monitoring this blog, that you do your research first. If you cannot confirm this man is rapist, then you should come clean and confess your error on this blog. On the other hand if you can prove that he is this man, then post the evidence for all to see. Failure to do this damages your relationship with your spirituality, your friends on this blog and with your God. Peace and love, my sister.
