I'm Not Buying What They're Selling

This is where the Catholic Church loses so much credibility:
Rome (CNN) -- The Catholic Church is on the verge of declaring late Pope John Paul II a saint, a Vatican source familiar with the process told CNN on Tuesday.
The committee that considers candidates for sainthood voted Tuesday to credit the late pope with a second miracle, the source said, asking not to be named discussing internal Vatican deliberations. 
He was fast-tracked to beatification when he died in 2005, and became "the blessed" John Paul II barely six years after his death -- the fastest beatification in centuries. 
For beatification, a person must be credited with a miracle by the Catholic Church.
Pope Benedict, now pope emeritus, ruled in 2010 that John Paul II had miraculously cured a French nun of Parkinson's disease. 
Sister Marie-Simon-Pierre, a nun whose order prayed to the pope after he died, said she was cured of the disease, an ailment that also afflicted John Paul II.
Not Well, to be too, too, completely blasphemous, this is just more 14th-century poppycock, with little more as little credibility as the crying statue of Mary. Remember, these are the same people who laugh at voodoo and scoff at suicide bombers and the promise of 72 virgins.  

What's the real damn difference anyway?

ADDING: Good LORD (and I mean that figuratively), the comments on this story at Gawker are tremendously blasphemous.  

These people better hope there's no Gawd, or I'll be seeing them in Hell.
