Virgin Mary Appears at Highway Underpass - Then Defaced

What's more disappointing? The prevalence of graffiti in our society, or the fact that people mistake a salt stain on a cement wall under a highway for the Virgin Mary?
I'd say the latter.

First, the image looks NOTHING like the Virgin Mary.
Second, even if it resembled the Virgin Mary slightly, it's not a sign. When I was young I used to look up at the sky at what appeared to be chariots of fire, or some other image. Clouds were great because their formation was so random, that a creative individual could see almost anything.

The idea that adults would stand around looking at a salt stain on a concrete underpass is absurd. It's so amazing these people exist. Some of these people have children, and I think priority number 1 is for the government to investigate the mental stability of these caretakers. Any individual who would worship salt and cement must be called into question, at least in their capacity to care for young children.

Thank goodness Victor L. Gonzalez defaced the underpass (with picture). Those worshippers likely caused some kind of disturbance among other travelers, or at the very least, used up precious fuel to get to the underpass to worship, and someone had to put a stop to that. Shame on those two woman who removed the stain placed by Gonzalez. You're not supposed to encourage these people.

Jennifer Wilbanks - The Runaway Bride - NUKED

We all know the story of Jennifer Wilbanks, the Runaway Bride. By the way, it appears she was prosecuted 10 years ago for shop lifting.

I feel bad for this woman. Jennifer seems like one of those people who go to church all the time, and honors Jesus, for the sake of creed, not religion. She does not really understand religion; she just practices it, blindly.

Religious people have an individual relationship with a higher power.

Creedful people practice religion and say all the right words, but they join a religious group for the wrong reasons. They are scared, fearful, weak people who have made many mistakes in life. They can’t stand the possibility that nothing exists after death. And so they grab at straws like religion. I both feel bad and look down on them for their ignorance.

Religious people, whether Christian or otherwise, have not earned my contempt. In fact, I admire truly religious people for their discipline and devotion. Many of the great men throughout the history of the world were religious. Heck, Jesus was religious, and I admire him.

Creedful people (a.k.a. the masses) have earned my contempt. They are religious for the wrong reasons. These are usually people like Jennifer Wilbanks or President George W. Bush who have a checkered past or who have made big mistakes in their life, and “religion” becomes their salvation. I never made such big mistakes, and hence don’t require such a major life change to feel better about myself. How does that make these people better candidates for heaven than me?
