Hundreds of Pilgrims (Morons) Flock to Glowing Virgin Mary Statue

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Hundreds of people have been flocking to a house in southern Belgium to catch a glimpse of a small statue of the Virgin Mary which reportedly glows in the dark.


Police have been required to bolster their presence around a pavilion erected by the retired Belgian owners of the statue, which witnesses suggest lets out a dull glow after dark.

The statue, about 30 centimetres (one foot) in height, represents the Virgin of Banneuxfrom the name of a nearby village where in 1933 a young girl was said to have witnessed an appearance by the Virgin."


If an adult female virgin were located in Belgium, or any country for that matter, that would truly be a miracle and I could understand why people would gather around her, trying to take a selfie with the pristine woman.

But statues of the Virgin Mary that glow, shed tears or move without human intervention are a dime a dozen.

If the statue of the Virgin Mary twerked like Miley Cyrus then I would fall on my face, praise God, and pledge my undying allegiance to the Catholic Church.

Did any of those pious and pathetic pilgrims check to see if the statue has a battery?

Search "Virgin Mary" on YouTube and you will find hundreds of videos of miraculous statues:
