RELIGIOUS HOCUS POCUS?

The Daily Telegraph reports it to be 'one of the most important events for British Roman Catholics since the visit of Pope John Paul'. The Church of England are involved too with a viewing at York Minster.

This event of great significance centres around the dismemberment of a woman, Therese, and the gathering of the 'faithful' to worship her thigh and foot bones.

Any wonder that most view religion as hocus pocus, humbug and superstition. It indeed may prove to be a 'most important event'; putting another nail in the coffin of religious adherence in this country.

Foot and thigh worship contrast with the Gospel message in which we remember, seek to exemplify and share in the resurrection life of Jesus Christ, who was careful to leave no bones, no relics and no personal fragments for material obsession and cult adoration.
