    I've got to assume that the blood is as real as the purely Caucasian features of the mother of Jesus.

    Has anyone asked what the relevancy of a bleeding Mary is? I mean, I get a bleeding Jesus.... but why Mary. Is she being beaten by someone? Was there some crucifixion of Mary that I missed when I read the Bible? Is it magically dripping from Jesus' still bleeding hands in heaven?

    This is the same thing I wonder about crying Marys. Why is she still crying?! It's been 2k years... Get over it already!

    Religious people really get on my nerves. When they die, we pay all that money for a funeral and they haven't even got the decency to come back as a ghost and tell us what the afterlife is like, but are never slow to bore the socks of us about it when they are alive.
