His Lordship, Bishop Aphonsus Cullinan, leader of Roman Catholics in the Diocese of Waterford and Lismore has decided to target practitioners of the quack science called Reiki for special attention. Seems that Satan is somewhere in the background when people are rubbing one another with oils or whatever these fools do to up the energy levels.
One man in his diocese was scared out of his wits and returned to the church as a direct consequence, presumably saving a fist of money in the process which he will then cough up on the plate every Sunday instead.
Are there any other quack practices or beliefs that need to be exposed for what they are? Lourdes, Fatima and Knock as well as papal infalibility are other signs of unexplained energy giving notions to people of enormous power too. These are surely diabolical too.
In fairness to the Bishop he ran John Halligan from a confirmation ceremony a few months ago, so he knows something unworldly when he sees it.
Any others that the Good people of Waterford need warning of?
