Blinded by the light!

A 17-year-old Benoni girl - who claims to have seen the mother of Jesus - is telling her pilgrims to look into the setting sun to witness a beautiful miracle.

But a renowned medical doctor, with a lifetime of experience, says people should never look into the sun with the naked eye.
Francesca Zackey speaks in tongues and she believes that by looking into the burning star, believers will see it spin while an amazing kaleidoscope of colours pour out around the Virgin Mary herself.
(To protect delicate eyes against the hydrogen giant, Mary places a protective shield in front of the sun.)
Meanwhile, the reality of the situation is that dozens of people have lost their eyesight due to the proclamations of this wayward "Prophet!"

A notice was issued by the local authorities;

Faith, for so many people, is a wonderful thing. It gives hope and comfort, and brings people together. But if it is abused by fanatics, it mutates into an ugly weapon that can be used to spark atrocities.

People argue that, with free will, people have choices. If told to jump into a fire, surely common sense will prevail, they say. But this is an underestimation of religious indoctrination.

Yes, people have choices. But sometimes belief is too strong.

With hundreds of people flocking to see Francesca each day, the church must take serious note of the latest developments and put a stop to it!

Once again, Religion is a great thing to provide people with a sense of comfort, especially in times of trouble, but for God's sake us a bit of common sense.

It should be obvious to anyone that (1) the World has got to be a lot older than 7,000 years since creation and (2) you just can't look right into the sun without suffering consequences. Period! (And I don't care what Manfred Mann says!)

I hate to say this, but losing your eyesight for doing something stupid, is one hell of a steep price to pay!

Your humble servant;
