Proof that the Catholic Church is full of shit

In 2010, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI approved John Paul's first reported miracle: a French nun supposedly cured of Parkinson's disease. Sister Marie-Simon-Pierre, a nun whose order prayed to the pope after he died, said she was cured of the disease, an ailment that also afflicted John Paul.

The second miracle reportedly occurred in Costa Rica, where a woman said she recovered from a severe brain injury thanks to the intervention of John Paul, sources told CNN Vatican analyst John Allen.

This is total bullshit. Want a fucking miracle? How about taking some of the people wounded in war or a terrible accident, with out limbs, with out eyes and unable to function with out having some one spoon feed them and empty their piss bag every 8 hours and cure them instead of these bullshit stories made up to bolster the church's public opinion.

(edit)

I had to reduce the profanity but I still feel the same way... fuck the catholic church. Fucking liars.

Yeah I read about this. They

Yeah I read about this. They broke their own rules twice to fast track this shit because of popular pressure. Just goes to show their rules are pointless.

I also love how they make the claim that medical science can't explain her being cured yet they don't even offer evidence she had the condition in the first place, let alone that she doesn't anymore. Smoke & mirrors.

I know it's not about Catholicism, but it's hilarious, and touches well on the idea of "miracles". 

 

Theists - If your god is omnipotent, remember the following: He (or she) has the cure for cancer, but won't tell us what it is.

I listened for about 10 seconds too long... nothing funny about his singing.
