When a scholar and author is caught on camera eating human brains with a Hindu cult, it’s not just a shock to convention. It’s an insult to conscience.
When I heard that Muslim scholar Reza Aslan was caught on camera eating human brains with a Hindu cult, as author of a book refuting his best-selling but absurd notions about Jesus, I was tempted to respond, “The man could use more brains, though there are better ways to get them!”
But Aslan’s stunt raised questions in many minds. Is cannibalism really so bad? A Facebook friend volunteered that he wouldn’t mind (health considerations aside) having his own brains consumed after death.
