    I wish that Jesus will come to me and spread his loving arms to comfort me and free me from my woes and burdens.

    I wish that Jesus will take me in his hand and walk with my in the light of goodness. I hope he will help me understand life and my place in it.

    I wish he would.

    This guy should get a medal. Too bad that people's delusions get threatened in the process. Christians never cease to amaze me with their war against facts and reality.

      I am not amazed anymore. I have decided it can't be possible. I must be some eloborate hoax. This kind of thing can't be possible in the 21st century. Can't be.

      December 7, 2012 at 8:32 pm |

      Why what facts and reality are you talking about? As for your "delusion" comment...if you are saying Christians are delusional then surely you can prove that?

    • Apple Bush


      Prove you are delusional? What could be easier than that? Your entire belief system isi based on ancient, unproven superstitions and mythology. Are you serious?? Wow.

      It's the Bible that ignores facts and reality.

      KRHODES. So you're saying that although we know stone cannot weep and that there must be a rational explanation which someone has provided, you'd rather go with the "god did it" explanation? If yes – that is the delusion referred to.

      "KRHODES. So you're saying that although we know stone cannot weep and that there must be a rational explanation which someone has provided, you'd rather go with the "god did it" explanation? If yes – that is the delusion referred to."

      Evidently you either did not read what i stated, or you are having some serious comprehension problems.

    • In Santa we trust

      KRHODES. You questioned the facts and reality – the facts are and reality is, stone doesn't weep. So to believe anything else is delusional. As it is a christian statue, that's where the reference to christians came from.

      @KRhodes, so you are going to stand in line and drink sewer shit water from the pedophile priest's hand as well? You pathetic fucking idiot.

      Gotta love the logic of that religious guy... paraphrasing:

      ... the law is the law. He doesn't have the right to damage my faith by bringing up those pesky facts of his ...

      Abdominal discomfort, fatigue, weight loss, diarrhea, bloating, fever, Flu-like symptoms, watery diarrhea, loss of appetite, substantial loss of weight, increased gas, nausea, cramps, vomiting, muscle aches and flatulence is a priviledge, not a right.

    As an Evangelical Born Again Christian I would like to thank this man for debunking this "Miracle" and potentially saving people's lives in the process.
    Let him go back home and receive public accolades for a job well done.

    December 7, 2012 at 6:32 pm |
    • Blessed are the Cheesemakers

      There is no need to debunk miracles since they have never been shown to be anything BUT bunk.

      December 7, 2012 at 7:02 pm |

      You don't sound like a born-again evangelical christian.

      December 7, 2012 at 7:07 pm |

      As a rational atheist, I would like to thank this man for protecting the health of others and understanding miracles do not exist in the first place.

      You Talibangelicals believe in equally insane irrational shit as these imbeciles. So you feel superior to your fellow crazies because you aren't drinking shitty water dripping from a statue?

      Why blame the victims here, dysentery is no fun. They might be "delusional" or not your religion but the real problem is someone needs to clean up the freakin water.

    Typical religious reaction to evidence contrary to their cherished beliefs: hide head in sand and get mad at those who point out reality.

    Blasphemy is truly a victimless crime.

  15. Reality

    And the insanity continues:

    To wit:
    (only for new members of this blog)

    JC's family and friends had it right 2000 years ago ( Mark 3: 21 "And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.")

    Said passage is one of the few judged to be authentic by most contemporary NT scholars. e.g. See Professor Ludemann's conclusion in his book, Jesus After 2000 Years, p. 24 and p. 694.

    Actually, Jesus was a bit "touched". After all he thought he spoke to Satan, thought he changed water into wine, thought he raised Lazarus from the dead etc. In today's world, said Jesus would be declared legally insane.

    Or did P, M, M, L and J simply make him into a first century magic-man via their epistles and gospels of semi-fiction? Many contemporary NT experts after thorough analyses of all the scriptures go with the latter magic-man conclusion with J's gospel being mostly fiction.

    Obviously, today's followers of Paul et al's "magic-man" are also a bit on the odd side believing in all the Christian mumbo jumbo about bleeding statues, bodies resurrecting, and exorcisms, and miracles, and "magic-man atonement, and infallible, old, European/Utah white men, and 24/7 body/blood sacrifices followed by consumption of said sacrifices. Yummy!!!!

    So why do we really care what a first century CE, illiterate, long-dead, preacher/magic man or his followers would do or say?

    If hindu-bot spits in the face of a statue of Jesus and it hits Jesus in the eye, is it a miracle?

    The only thing more stupid than these believers are the fat Ugly Americans who will buy small viles of the sewer water on the street for 172 Rupees.
