    You know that piece of toast you have with the face of Mary on it? You might have to get it authenticated before you put it on eBay.

    Woah woah woah. Stop. You're not attempting to question religion are you? Didn't anyone tell you that we're not allowed to question religion - it's given a higher status than other topics worthy of debate.

    Sit back down. Right now. (Or burn in hell).

    As Brendan Behan succinctly put it: "The Church of England was founded on the bollocks of Henry VIII.'' :D

    That's Frank Zappa. Clearly out of the Pope's jurisdiction.

    EDIT: Or Derek Smalls. Same story.

    Oh i can see it now…
    Pope pacing up and down on a marble dais, furiously pumping his fists in the air, sweating like a Papal Bull(a)…

    "We need… Missionaries!
    Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… Missionaries… and priests!"


    With apologies to Ballmer's Monkeyboy dance…

    everyone seems to forget he was in the hitler youth. Forced into it mind you. and to be fair , NO idea that he can ever come up with will ever make him seem as utterly barmey as Arch Bishop(?) Rowan Williams, Head of the church of england. Just google him and you'll find many instances of this lunacey, including the idea hes got that disney is evil because the characters dont wear trousers or inspire family values.

    That's total crap. Why should we have to listen to him, whether we're catholic or not. Religion needs to stop controlling everyone's lives.

    I think it is (should) meant to say "'divine' origin or moronic" and not demonic.

    He's got a point about false claims. That toast image is clearly Jeff Daniels . . . not the Virgin Mary.

    um...

    so he's wanting scientific proof of an object's divinity (or lack thereof)?

    that's going to be a tricky one. You're opening up a can of worms on that one, your eminence.

    I just love having something that no matter how blue im feeling, can always cheer me up with a laugh: the church.

    It just seems to get funnier as I get older.....:p

    Demonic toast taste the best, though. So, scientific proof of a religious event is ok when the church wants it, seems legit.
