But the scheme has caused disquiet in the Vatican, which is anxious to discourage the veneration of relics, seen as a medieval practice with no place in the modern church. "Wars were fought over the hunt for relics in the Middle Ages," said Bishop Velasio De Paolis, secretary of the Apostolic Signature, the Vatican's top judicial body.

One day, I will find the holy keyboard of St. Kibo and then yea verily shall my programs compile unto the Xth iteration with no abends and there shall be a stillness upon the datapaths and the light of His wisdom shall illuminate the darkness of the chatrooms and banish the daemons of the Adversary from the home directory.

So say we all!

They should sell them at Goldenpalace.com.

Yeah, because the Vatican hasn't already made billions of tax-free dollars off selling bullshiat to millions.

Why does organized religion continue to get so much credibility? Is it really proper to call our times "modern" due to this?
 
2007-09-24 10:00:24 PM
Stay classy, Catholic church.
 
2007-09-24 10:00:27 PM
Can I pay extra for the piece that resided over the holy staff?

It's time to put these Catholic farkers on another diet of Worms.

OMG! The saddest part of this pathetic tale is that 100,000 deluded half-wits will buy each a piece and pray to its magical powers.

Did they drench it in animal blood first, as proof?

Are we starting up the indulgences practice again?

Doesn't this break some kind of catholic law?

You just gotta market it right. It seems that "Holy" or "Epic" (according to ChuckyV) material sells really well.

You just have to work along those lines.

I can't believe they are selling the holiest of garments!
