Looks like Avalokiteshvara to me.

/say that three times real fast!

It's not da vine, it's the grape. And if they wait three days, Mary, like her famous son, will need a miracle if she wants to be raisin from the dead.
 
2008-09-05 06:20:07 AM  
Wait a few days and she'll look like Mother Teresa.

I, for one, welcome our new grape Mary mother of Jesus masters.

Baptists are the new Catholics.

if she really said "foodstuffs" she can't be all bad.
 
2008-09-05 06:37:17 AM  
all jokes aside, i find it silly that people think they "found virgin mary" on a grape...when really, they found a deformation and a discoloration on a grape that they perceive as the virgin mary, according to what they think she looks like based on how their white religious leaders perceived her to look

to me...that looks like a smeared up piece of poop and i would toss that rotten arsed grape out!

Stupid Baptists (is that redundant?). That isn't Jebus' Mom. That's the Sunmaid Raisin girl.

Virgin pollenation?

I'm guessing they can really make Holy Wine out of that bunch of grapes.

*boom* *tish!*

God is Grape!

It looks more like Mary with Anti-tank rocket launcher.

Welcome to the Sarah Palin demographic group.
 
2008-09-05 07:14:40 AM  
So where is this painting\photo to compare to?

Maybe some farker will help with a bibical description of her.

I thought the quote was hilarious.
 
2008-09-05 07:28:06 AM  
the real miracle here is how can these people recognize someone that (assuming she actually existed) has been dead for about 2000 years.
 
2008-09-05 07:31:45 AM  
Looks more like Gandalf to me.

I once found a fig newton that looked like Mickey Rooney.
I'm eagerly awaiting the various fruit, vegetable and shrubbery manifestations of Obamamessiah. Praise be to him!

I see an old prospector with a long white beard on that grape.

Seedless grape, no doubt.

I always get a little depressed at this sort of stupidity.

Why is it that it continues to escape people that NO images of Jesus of Nazereth were ever painted or sculpted or ANYTHING during his lifetime or from descriptions of anyone who could have possibly known him.

NO images of his mother Mary nor even descriptions of what she might have looked like are present ANYWHERE.

All these images you people keep seeing are likenesses of paintings and sculptures (considered by the people of Jesus's time to be IDOLs) of NO ONE IN PARTICULAR.

Pull your heads out people!

That'd be a LOL, Houston

Kinda looks like Pippi Longstocking to me.
 
2008-09-05 08:27:52 AM  
Oh Baptists...and other non-Catholics. How silly they are!
 
2008-09-05 08:36:36 AM  
So what'll happen when that grape dries out and the image looks like Mohammed?

fanbladesaresharp: So what'll happen when that grape dries out and the image looks like Mohammed?

Then you get blowed up because that's an abomination.

FTFA: Friends have suggested she "eBay it."

"The logistics involved in shipping it to any buyer would be interesting," Ginn said.


And there's the point. It ain't the VM, or Jesus; it's just a way to sell some crap to some poor bastard that has too much money and not enough common sense.
 
2008-09-05 08:50:58 AM  
Why does it always have to be Mary, Mary, Mary? That clearly resembles Judith and Holofernes or Salome with the head of John the Baptist more than Mary.

And she rolls the holy grape around in a bowl. Now that's entertainment lol

Well, "God" is "Dog" spelled backwards, so...

Hmmm, now that you mention it...

FTA:

"I haven't made a shrine to it, nor prayed to it, nor done much of anything except e-mail the picture to a few friends and roll it around in the bowl in the fridge," Ginn said.

She doesn't sound so crazy to me.
 
2008-09-05 09:30:43 AM  
Jeez, people, she doesn't actually believe it's some holy sign. She's actually being humorous about it. Calm down.
 
2008-09-05 09:32:59 AM

Baptist? Interesting as wikipedia has her as a Pentacostal.

People finding faces in stuff isn't news or religious, it's part of how our brains work, get over it already.
