Shahid Batalvi Speaks

with apology to Black Elk for he speaks first

Are you a pagan ?

It is customary during a war to kill as many of the enemy as possible.
No no, no Sir, it wasn’t quite so handsome.
I’ll tell you what rule we applied Sir. We applied rule 303.
We caught them and we shot them under rule 303.
Handcock: What’s a pagan ?
Morant: Well, it’s somebody who doesn’t believe there is a divine Being dispensing justice to mankind.
Matthew 10.36: And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
Well Peter, this is what comes of empire building.
