Thread Name: BS: Religious freedom, or murder?
Subject: RE: BS: Religious freedom, or murder?
At present all of the (English) textbooks I have been able to come up with start the necessary mens rea for murder with "an intent to do an act" before going on to futher features of intent. In this case there was, it seems, no act done and no intent to so any act.

I am in some doubt whether that is right, but will be back after furhter reading.
