Images In The Flames: Miracle?
Or Consigned To The Flames Of Woe?

Some people see images
in flames.

And in clouds.

Some people even see them
in mashed potatoes.

Look carefully at this pope-in-the-flames photo.

The image is said by many to be that of the late Holy Father with his right hand raised in a blessing.

It appeared during a commemoration ceremony to mark his death.

Details of the figure in the flames have appeared on the Vatican News Service - a TV station which specialises in religious news broadcasts.

If this is a true sign of a miracle, wouldn't the image last longer than a single frame?

Look again: The flaming pope image depicts a figure stooped over, not sitting in a car waving to the faithful. It looks more like this...

Thus endeth today's sermon.

Go forth today and ponder:

If the pope is still stooped over...

and ON FIRE...

Does a pope's afterlife still seem like such a good deal to you?

And... if the image looked like Elvis, would it still be considered a miracle?

Or would the faithful assume that The King had been consigned to the flames of woe?

Pass the marshmallows and think about it.

I mean it, damn it!

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19--
