Saints' Relics

The centuries old practice, by certain religions, of selling and worshipping saints' relics is a con; designed to extract money from the gullible.

The nail clippings, pieces of cloth and other assorted detritus; that allegedly belonged to these dead "saints" contain no magical powers that can heal the sick, or save the soul.

The churches should be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating such a con.
