Whats the difference between the pope blessing someone and a witch doctor performing voodoo ritual


And what about exorcisms? Is there objective proof that the pope's rituals are based in reality, and the other mere primitive superstitious nonsense? And what about the efficacy?

    Are you implying that blessings and spells have an actual effect? I thought that both were essentially useless

    I really cant get the gist of what u are saying here. I am asking for explanations as to why there would be differences between the Pope's blessing and a witch doctor's ritualistic nonsense....if any

    It is all the same. The only difference is that the masses have been tricked into thinking that Western ritualistic nonsense is somehow superior to that of Third World, or developing nations rituals. Its ALL primitive nonsense

    I haven't seen any other Christians on CNN with miracles either, at least none that can be objectively proven. I have seen Catholics and many others on unreliable television shows claiming to have experienced a great miracle.
