    They are interesting. Tell me, what is your view on Saints? I thought they were a Catholic thing until I saw whodey reference St Paul.

    Some are transformed gods e.g. St. Brigid.

    Most non-Catholics (and also many Catholics) utterly fail to understand the role of saints in Catholicism.

    Thinking of me? You're right.
    The flora of saints resembles the variety of gods in hinduism. One for each purpose.

    Interesting for you to admit you fail to understand their role and then comment on how the role you don't understand resembles something else.

    Classic Fabian.

    That's right, I don't understand it.

    Can you explain it to me in laymen's terms?

    I can, but you never actually read what people write so I won't be bothered.

    You can, but you won't, yet you care?

    Oh, but I do care. Immensely.

    But since you won't learn anyway, there's nothing I can do about it.

    Saint - Catholic priests are rewarded with that title after they die for not being caught and costing the Vatican $billions.

    I suppose that makes sense. It's a better explanation than Palyanka's.

    The catholic people actually fall for this? Like worshipping saints, like they actually are gods? Very hinduistic, if you ask me.

    Ah, the money grubbing stereotype. Catholic priests are the new Jews.

    Sometimes, nothing is better than something.

    Most of the basis of the problem is explained in the first two minutes of this video by a compatriot of Fabian:

    I cannot learn from nothing, you know.

    If you don't have answers for me, then I rather listen at somepne who has.
