    God bless America! A black guy playing the electric guitar, playing the polka, so a bunch of old people of all colors can dance! That's what it's all about!

    In light of some of the comments, all I can say is that I have the same right to believe my own delusional nonsense as you do.

    Now – what were we talking about...?

    If gawd does exist, he/it really does not like that nun who says she is married to Jesus who is his own father... hence she is still here on earth

    There is no god, only religion and delusional humans dancing around their own graves

      doctorezero, Marriage to Jesus means she believes in His teachings and distributes His truth to others which then brings forth fruit to God, the fruit of holiness.

    103 years of delusional waste dancing a polka. What a waste of years that could have been spent doing things honestly instead. Damn the catholic church forever for the pit of filth and corruption that it really is.

      You never cease to amaze me Hersh, and prove the wisdom in Deuteronomy about parents refusing to correct disobedient children. The world is then left with the disobedient chronologically aged.
