Why is it always Catholics that are claiming to see shit like this?

Catholics believe in miracles that can occur in everyday life to ordinary people. That's why there are beautified people well into the 20th century and various visions and prophecies. Case in point.

Huh...so, basically, in Catholicism, the saints and such are like NCOs in the military, they serve to bridge the gap between us foot sloggers and the COs.  Fascinating how that works...

Exactly. Don't know much about the military, but are you supposed to want to be them or act like them, too? Because they're also there as reminders that you don't have to be Jesus to be holy: all saints are perfectly ordinary people who managed to become saints through acts of goodness and devotion to God, and the implication is that you, too, could be a saint and that it's not unachievable.

That's a good idea, true.

Though technically a Saint is anyone who's gone to heaven. The sainted individuals are those that are guaranteed to be in heaven because they are bringing miracles to us. The Catholic Church generally tries to avoid going apeshit over every miracle and tends to be pretty stingy, especially recently, with saying something is a miracle. You need two-three to be a saint. Beatification requires 1.

Though I think all that is waived for martyrs. I can't think of a martyr that didn't get saintdom, at least famous martyrs.
The material needs a defender more than the spiritual. If there is a higher power, it can defend itself from the material. Thus denotes 'higher power'.

Aye.  Typically, NCOs (from what I've heard and read, I've no actual military experience) are the guys you wanna be like, when you're a regular soldier.  They've got experience, and they know how to command their units and inspire them.  Usually, the people leading the charges are NCOs, if I'm not mistaken.  Generals and other top-ranking commissioned officers pretty much never enter the battlefield.

Jesus fucking Christ (literally) coming back from work is gonna be a bitch tomorrow. And what's more the stain is on a hospital; they're blocking ambulance access praying.

Hundreds of Catholics have gathered in prayer and worship outside a Malaysian hospital after seeing an image said to resemble the Virgin Mary on one of the windows.
Pictures of the image have gone viral among local Christians on Facebook and large crowds have gathered at the Sime Darby Medical Centre just outside Kuala Lumpur.
Those assembled Sunday maintained they can now also see an image of an adult Jesus Christ just two windows away from his mother.

Perfect example of why the cult of catholicism is of the devil.

Did you really come to a site that has a large atheist population, who's main purpose is to poke fun at fundamentalists of all stripes, and try to convince us that Catholicism is bad?  Wow, you really set a low bar for yourself there, sport.  Now get back to the threads where there are direct questions waiting for you.

Anyway, didn't know there are fucking norms for apparitions and this kind of shit.

Whenever I hear of something like this, I can't help but remember the Bloom County strips where people showed up to venerate a clump of mold in the shape of the head of Elvis Presley growing on the side of a refrigerator.

It's actually margarine.

Seriously, it's not butter?

I can't believe it's not butter.
