I'll make a small change of tactic and readjust my home alter so that the fuzzbuts can't get at anything I leave out. See what happens over a period of time....

*shrug* Catholics like bloody imagery.
yosei, your very right. i'm catholic(though renagade one) and have been dragged to many a boring mass and sunday school session in my life. the jist of what i know on weeping icons is that the vatican proclaims them as a religious miracle until someone debunks it. like there was a statue in either rome or texas or somewhere where there are scads of catholics where there was this statue of christ that would weep tears of blood when there was a world crisis. turned out it was fake. i laughed at that one. my aunt told me it was a real miracle and i told her it was a hoax and i was right! lol anyways, to make a point, the catholics like bloody stuff. lots of it. our crucfixes always have the bloody wounds and scabs and sores of christ well represented. our art is bloody. our statues weep blood. so to put it simply, catholics = bloody stuff.

Thanks Moon, I got it from a website called http://www.mycathatesyou.com Hilarious place.
What's Olive Oil and Wax flyingorb? Was that the substance the Hindu icon was absorbing? I'd be crushed if that one turned out to be a hoax...
No, its just a way the ancients made statues weep. Olive oil under the eyes covered by wax. The wax would melt/leak and the oil would appear to be tears from the statue's eyes.

Has anyone see the little East Indian girl who "cried glass tears"? It was on 60 minutes a year or two ago-they pulled it off on T.V.-I STILL think there was a way they faked this.
See what hoaxes do to people? Ruins (for me) what may be authentic.

For all of you who were raised 'Catholic' and feel you have the right to pull punches, fine. But now I'm going to start pulling punches with all of you Wiccans and Pagans and I just know that you will ALL have a COW!!
SHE CAN'T DO THAT!! She's not being open minded! NO, the simple fact of the matter is it's just not the 'cool' thing to be Catholic. It's 'cool' to be Wiccan tho. It's cool to prance around with a coven and make spells out in the woods on a full moon! Now, THAT'S NEAT and make no mistake, me and every one else around are EXPECTED to respect your faith.
Respect mine and I'll respect yours, but as for now I haven't seen very much.
