The Crushing Crucifix

I don't know about you, but I don't typically hang out near giant iron crucifixes. So, short of being in the vicinity of a botched crucifix airlift, I shouldn't have to worry about one landing on me. Paoletta Orru' of Mogorella (Italy), however, was not so lucky. Ms. Orru' was crushed to death by an iron crucifix at the entrance of the church of San Lorenzo while she was attending mass. Story in brief here [AGI online]. I don't know about Italy, but here in America, that kind of death can only mean one of two things:
  1. Either someone somewhere was negligent, and a lawsuit will quickly ensue, or...
  2. That pour soul really ticked off Someone (yes, with a capital "S") in a high place.
To which I have to say: "Yo! Mr. (or Ms.) Judeo-Christian Godhead! What was up with that?!"

Damn. I've entered a Roman Catholic Shrine on multiple occasions, and I haven't burst into flames, had a cross fall on me, etc., even lit a candle and didn't burst into flames. No blisters from the holy water, either.
