(at top of lungs) YOU PEOPLE ARE RETARDED
Next, automatic communion dispensers.
That I'd like to see.
Got a free cracker, tho.
Okay, let's put aside the usual observations about religion having no proof and what have you, and just address the believers:
If god was real, and all powerful, and if blessing water actually DID something, don't you think it would be swine-flu free?
Further: given that illnesses are caused by demons anyway, if the demons are able to live in holy water then perhaps you are being fooled. The holy water you are splashing is actually the collected tears of buggered altar boys, the mothers of young women who died of complications from back-alley abortions, and women trapped in a loveless marriage giving birth to child after ungrateful child because it's the only way they can feel like they have worth.
No, all the world is Holy, but God never made claim to it being safe. The fact that most of it will kill you doesn't change that. And the notion that stupid people are trying to figure out whether changing ancient hygiene patterns to better survive is in keeping with tradition isn't news either.
Also nobody who baptizes with water, including Catholics, gets to make fun of the idea of holy water. Only us smug lapsed Catholics can.

I want a priest to sneak up behind these people and go "AH-AH-CHOO!" and spray them with a water bottle.
"JUST KIDDIIIIING! It's Holy Water!"
I POST ON POETV AND I HATE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE!!!
It's not that easy. There's a waiting period. You start off with Glenn Beck and then as you move to the more contentious stuff you get badges: fetus being used as a football, flag with poop on it, the usual. When you are clear of all thetans/sympathy for humanity there is a test, and it involves correctly predicting the behavior of cats in various situations.
One step closer to the electric monk.
When I was a kid I remember hearing about Tibetan Buddhists. They write a prayer on flags and every time the flag flapped in the wind the prayer was considered said. They also wrote a prayer on cylinders and every time the cylinder turns the prayer was considered said. I always wondered why they didn't get lots and lots of computers and write a short computer program to print the prayer on the screen hundreds of times a minute.
I don't mean to comment on all these but, did you ever read this:
Pretty cute, anyway.
They should just replace it with Purel.
Purel only kills 99.9% of organisms. The other %0.1 have unholy power and need to be exorcised.
