The Virgin Mary of Sime Darby a Con
The Papal Nuncio (an archaic term for Vatican Diplomatic representative ) of Malaysia and south east Asia has been ordered by the Vatican to intervene in the farcical “Miracle” called the apparition of the “Sime Darby Virgin Mary”.
The apparition on the plate glass panel of the Sime Darby Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia has been drawing hundreds of visitors and curious onlookers to the site daily.
The image and the glass on which it “appeared” has been ordered by the Vatican to be removed from the Sime Darby Hospital in Kuala Lumpur to a church in the Kelang valley that bears the name of the Vigin Mary.
The glass plate is also to be “independently tested” (whatever that means) according to a local priest who did not wish to be identified.
The unnamed priest has himself admitted to embarrassment and confirmed the embarrassment of the Vatican over the incident and at the sight of the reaction of Catholics in the area.
A great work of art indeed is this. Unfortunately for those who engineered this “Miracle” and however well intentioned they may have been, the scam has been discovered.
A unique form of acrylic paint is being tested at a laboratory in the UK from a sample taken from the “miraculous image” of the Virgin Mary of Sime Darby. In addition to this the reflective quality of the glass panel and the chemical reaction to what has been identified as a “substance” that was added to it has also been taken for analysis.
To the Vatican’s credit the “image” is to be pulled subject to the outcomes of an “independent” investigation into this “wonder”. More on what appears to be a scam later.
SAME CON DIFFERENT LOCATION
It was the “Holy Chappatti” in the mid sixties, a sea fungus found in the waters off Morib and Port Dickson which became the religious icon and heavenly sign of God’s divine presence on earth in that period. And at the forefront of that idol worship cult is as always, the Hindus and Catholics. Particularly of the Indian variety.
Today the image of what Catholics describe as the Virgin Mary appearing in a window of the Sime Darby Medical Centre in KL is clearly another fraud perpetrated by the same Catholic church that every so often introduces a Weeping Madonna, a Bleeding Christ or some other “supernatural” religious “phenomenon” especially in the third world when their numbers are in decline. And in Malaysia and south east Asia the Catholic church is in a desperate state of decline losing out to the evangelical and more pragmatic theatrical and hysteria prone doctrines of the new Christian orders.
YE OF LITTLE FAITH AND EVEN LITTLER BRAINS
Whilst these images go viral so too does the sight of idiocy and stupidity, a characteristic trait of Malaysia’s Indian community go with it. Unlike their kin folk in other parts of the world who have made successful lives of themselevs through hard work and diligence, these superstitious fools gather at any point where their imaginations are allowed to run wild.
These “faithfools” keep “looking” to the heavens to the celestial bodies for signs, divine messages then pray for “miracles” in the hope of finding that alternative to hard work and diligence. Just think miracles, “holy chappatis” scapula chains, chain letters, chain prayers complete with threats of disaster for non compliance and it will work according to some. And that mentality and religious zeal supported by the world’s oldest slave driving community the Vatican appears to grow unabated.
THE PHENOMENON OF HUMAN GULLIBILITY
A statue of the Virgin Mary that weeps tears recently drew busloads of visitors to St. Charbel Maronite Catholic Church in Windsor, Ontario. Every so often we read of strange appearances of the face of Jesus on various objects such as a plastered bathroom wall, a fish stick, or the foil of a cider bottle. Some of these objects have been sold on e-bay for unbelievable amounts of money by their finders.
What do these ‘appearances’ mean, and does anyone take them seriously? Does the Catholic Church use these so-called ‘miracles’ to foster superstition or to defraud people?
THE SHROUD OF TURIN – A MEDIEVAL MASTERPIECE OF DECEPTION
One of the most controversial objects, the Shroud of Turin has been investigated by scientists over many years. Tests include carbon dating, the type of cloth, the image and how it was transferred to the cloth, the dye used and where the pollen remains on the cloth originated. Many of the scientists in the investigation were/are not believers in Christ. Some evidence shows that it could be the burial cloth of Jesus, but there has been no definitive, formal decision made by the Church on its authenticity.
To this day, the Cathedral in Turin occasionally puts the Shroud on display (the last time in 2010), and thousands line up to view it. Catholics are not required to believe that the shroud was the burial cloth of Jesus; it is a personal decision of the faithful whether to believe that it is the image of Jesus. Pope John Paul II said in 1998, “Since it is not a matter of faith, the Church has no specific competence to pronounce on these questions. She entrusts to scientists the task of continuing to investigate, so that satisfactory answers may be found to the questions connected with this sheet.” But who in the church cares? it is good business and preys on human gullibility, ignorance and fear. And the Catholic church has no short supply of the gullible, the frightened and the ignorant.
DECAYING CORPSES, DYING COMMUNITIES AND A SENSE OF HOPELESSNESS
In India the Catholics put on display the decaying mummified corpses of St. Francis Xavier a Portuguese missionary. Francis Xavier preached and died in China, was then buried in Malacca his corpse later exhumed and taken to India where he was laid to rest in the Portuguese colony of Goa. His remains to this day lie in a glass casket now suspended from the ceiling of the Cathedral Bom Jesus in a demonstration of idolatry and superstition.
The man is said to be a miracle worker. Yet the irony of it all can be seen in the overwhelming evidence of teeming masses of tens of millions of poor and disease ridden Indians whose only crime is to be non Catholic (according to the Catholics there) and people of “little faith”. Not that this saint and his master the “Lord” has spared the tens of millions of Catholics (the chosen ones) from their wrath or hunger, disease, poverty or pain either. Yet the Indian ‘faithful’ come in droves. Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and otherwise non believers. Its a good business. Ask the vendors approved by the Church around these iconic images what life is like with this circus. None will complain of the fraud.
SHADES OF CROATIA- ANOTHER CATHOLIC POLITICAL STUNT
Not two decades ago the Catholic church played the same con on the faithful in Croatia then a part of the now defunct state of Yugoslavia. It was a place called Madjigoria and on a hill side. People fell for the same con the Church has a habit of playing on the faithful (more of the faith fool). It was at a time of political uncertainty in Yugoslavia.
The “Virgin Mary” it is claimed appeared at the hill side every evening and promised the faithful “peace” and change. We all know what that promise resulted in. A piece meal destruction of a once prosperous state. The bloodiest and most brutal conflict since world war 2. That Virgin Mary has now been proved to be a fraud at Madjigoria. It was an elaborate hoax the church would not condemn or withdraw recognition of at the time. The Catholic church having achieved its aims of destroying Yugoslavia on behalf of the US has now distanced itself from that fraud and the madness that followed.
There have been several other such cons but fortunately the perpetrators have been caught out. In south America especially where “bleeding statues” of Jesus Christ have been found in churches have been proved by the church (with the help of government scientists) to be elaborate hoaxes conducted by what the church when caught out calls the work of “Over zealous” priests.
The government ought to call in scientific experts and expose these charlatons once and for all so that Malaysia’s many Indians can return to the idea of hard work, less talk, more creative imagination than to rely on miracles, ‘miraculous chappatis’ and the Virgin Mary of Sime Darby.
WHY IS GOD ALWAYS A WHITE MAN TO THE INDIANS (EXCEPTING MURUGAN OF COURSE)
So ready are these fools to accept visual signs of a European crafted image as their God and mother of God that they are prepared to make fools of themselves in public. Oddly these apparitions have not occurred in places where little boys have been raped by priests and brothers. It appears that the Virgin Mary and Christ do support the perpetrators rather than the victims of pedophiles.
Father Lawrence ought to demonstrate to his congregation where in the Bible it says that it is okay for the faithful to worship idols, whether these be idol forms of Jesus Christ or his mother the Virgin Mary. Was this not the stuff Soddom and Gomorrah was made of? Do Catholics really need such images and apparitions to satisfy themselves of the exstence of God? or is the Catholic church in such a state of internal strife that they need magic shows, hysteria and a politically biased Jesus and Mary to put its house back in order?
ARE JESUS AND MARY ANTI OR PRO BARISAN? IS THERE A SACRED 4 DIGIT LOTTERY CLUE APPARENT IN THE VISION?
I bet the Virgin Mary will now give someone there in Malaysia a message that they should not vote for the Barisan government at the next elections. Isn’t it strange how the Virgin Mary and Jesus himself as God are unable to inspire Malaysians of all denominations to work together and as hard as the other to achieve prosperity and peace? instead they encourage the faithful from amongst the Indians in particular to continue to rely on magic, apparations and rituals, a symptom of schizophrenia, and avoid the normal things working people do.
Not long ago there was the Reverend Dinnakaran in Tamil Nadu India. Claims to this day to be a prophet with the ability to raise the dead. About a decade ago his young daughter was killed in a road accident. He refused to bury her till the body began to decay. He promised a miracle. He would raise her from the dead in the name of the ‘Risen Christ’. The ‘Christ’ he referred to did not come to his aid and his daughter remained decaying and very much dead.
The health authorities armed with a court order took possession of the corpse and cremated it for fear of disease. How ‘rational’ people can be driven to such levels of desperation in todays world is beyond most of us. Perhaps the government ought to set up a ministry of miracles before this outbreak of madness spreads to the rest of us non believers.
SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN BY CATHOLIC CLERGY-PERHAPS THATS THE VIRGIN’S MESSAGE
Led by a police officer in the state of New South Wales, the government of Australia and its opposition led by a Catholic in Tony Abbot is in a dilemma over the most recent call for a Royal commission of inquiry into sexual abuses of young people by a Catholic clergy. The practice is rife. Nothing’s changed since the time of Charlemagne and beyond. Young women and boys as little as 4 and 5 continue to fall prey to these rabid pedophiles and homosexuals found behind their long robes. And the Virgin Mary ( the embodiment of Christian virtue and chastity ) and her son have remained silent and out of sight for so long.
Perhaps this time round they are calling the faithful to rally against a politically driven clergy and its church devoid of policies and in bad need of a distraction from their demonic lifestyles. A news flash has just confirmed the Australian prime minister having confirmed a Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse not just against the Catholic church but against all institutions. Perhaps Julia Gillard is a re incarnation of the Virgin Mary made flesh in Australia? and why not? she is not married and has no children.
