"A devout Catholic woman in the southern German town of Traunstein has reported blood emerging from a 30 centimeter figurine of a praying Virgin Mary standing in her apartment. The town's newspaper has dispatched its newshounds and the local church is deeply skeptical."
Every couple of years we hear a story like this. I'm always bemused that they get even reported. If this was happening in the Arab world, it will be reported by Spiegle and other western media as an example of the deep religiousity (i.e. fanaticism) of the region.
