I guess it's no more stupid than the rest of things that people believe but, as someone who was raised Catholic I just had to laugh at this article. Do people actually believe this cra@p?

Wow - I can't understand how or why this would be reasonable to people. The Catholic church will never cease to amaze me with the things they can pass off as justified. This isn't a "major" thing, but it's so silly.........ugh.

It doesn't shock me, they will do anything to justify their beliefs and lead people back to them.
