The Pergatory special

wpope106.jpgAre you worried you might have to spend a little extra time in Pergatory washing off those hard to rinse sins? Well, fret no more, because if you travel to Lourdes within the next year the Pope is going to personally see to it that you spend less time in Pergatory. Certain restrictions apply. Not combinable with other offers. Offer ends December 8, 2008.

Wow. I thought the Catholic Church quit doing this kind of stuff a long time ago. I can’t believe they’re still trying to dupe people with after-death offers.

Hat tip to Isaiah.

    I knew you’d put your copywriting skills to great use! ;)

    On a serious note, though, this is just sickening, but sad.

    God bless, and Shalom!

    Very sad, indeed. I thought Martin Luther made his point rather well so many centuries ago. I thought the Church had repented since then. I guess not. For the Pope to claim that he has the authority to take away sins in return for some kind of work performed by the believer is outright blasphemy in my opinion.

  3. Sicarii says:

    It hasn’t changed in essence, I believe. And millions of Roman Catholics continue to be deceived by the Roman Church that seeks only to instill fear through religion and to control the lives of millions.

    Are you serious? The church is actually doing this?

    As a public service I wrote a bit on Purgatory at my place.

  6. This is just one thing of many that the Catholics do that violate God’s Word. That whole religion is repackaged Satanism. Not nice? It wasn’t mean to be!

  7. casey says:

    Ouch. I wouldn’t go that far. I do think that the practice of granting indulgences is blasphemous, though.

  8. Rick Rouse says:

    The scriptures outlining the plan of salvation make it very clear that having one’s sins washed away by the “Blood of the Lamb” isn’t a gradual process. When one accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Saviour, the remission of sins is both instantaneous and complete. Purgatory would surely be one nasty place with all those “residual sins” lying around.

    Speaking of Lourdes, did you hear about the chap in a wheel chair who went to Lourdes for healing? He was pushed into the waters with his wheel chair, but unfortunately was not healed. His wheel chair had a brand new set of tyres though!

  10. casey says:

    Nope, hadn’t heard that one before, MV. Do you think it would work with my car?

  11. Nephos says:

    Wow. Amazing, funny, and sad all at the same time.

    This is my first visit here (came by way of Kansas Bob), but won’t be my last.

  12. casey says:

    Thanks for stopping by, Nephos!

    Not to be outdone, Islam is allowing female bombers to receive 7 really hot males when they enter paradise. Not 70 virgins like the guys get but still–it’s a start!
