A New York Times article on April 21, headlined, “Virgin Mary Statue, Intact Among Ecuador’s Quake Ruins, Becomes a Beacon of Hope,” reported:

“After a 7.8-magnitude earthquake upended the nation last weekend, the survival of Our Mother of Monserrate has become a symbol of the persistence of this hillside town.”

The recent earthquake in Ecuador killed more than 600 people, but a three-foot statue of the Virgin Mary called Our Mother of Monserrate survived. And this is being hailed as a fuckin’ miracle!

Let’s get this straight: God, in his infinite wisdom, protected a statue, but killed hundreds of people???

In fact, there is no goddamn god. And if there were, you’d have to say that god, to quote Bob Avakian, is “cruel, vicious, sick, twisted, and truly monstrous.” Statues of mythical figures have no miraculous powers, and people who brainwash desperate and suffering people to believe they do are sick and twisted, too.
