    Argue that Pommie Mbangwa is a better batsman than Bradman. I want statistical evidence, too.

    Bradman was out 70 times in 52 Tests (1.35 times per match)
    Mbangwa was out 17 times in 15 Tests (1.13)

    Sledger, I would like foolproof evidence that you once looked at a man and got a bit of a hard-on.

    the priests were acting out of gods will, these are the men of god and they are carrying out gods plan unintentionally. Therefore htey are only doing theyre duty and are the carriage of god, by doing so they maintain the moral high ground. See refence to jerermy benthams theory of rule utilartrianism, the higher forms of pleasure will prevail as this is an act for the church.
