Bargain of the Day must be catching on.

by Feòrag

Corsair the Rational Pirate has drawn my attention to this delightful coprolite, sorry, Holy Relic Of The True Cross Of Jesus Christ, an extremely rare relic ... made by Christian artisans almost 1400 years ago in 630 AD in The Holy Land, from a portion of The True Cross!. As Corsair puts it,

It must be real! It has a certificate! From an antique dealer in Santa Fe, New Mexico. And we all know that the full name of the New Mexico state capital is "Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asis," or "Royal Village of the Holy Faith of St. Francis of Assisi". So they must be "in the know" with the big man upstairs. And if he says that this is a piece of the cross that they nailed him to, then they must be right!

Bidding ends in a couple of days (on Sunday - naughty, naughty!) and currently stands at $349.00 but you can buy it now for $449.00. The same vendor also has an Antique Jewelled Reliquary w/True Cross Relic:

This is a very lovely and rare piece found in Quebec, Canada (Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre), with an age of around 100 years! This reliquary holds a relic of 2 slivers in the shape of a cross, from the True Cross of Jesus (Cruc.D.N.I.C.), with Vatican seal and strings intact. The reliquary is 14 1/2" tall and has an amazing filigree artistry of golden and silver design, accentuated with 70 stunning red jewels ( none missing! ). There is only a very little hole on the handle at the back of this reliquary, as seen in the picture, otherwise it is in excellent condition. Unfortunately these pictures do not capture the true beauty of this piece. Bidding for this exquisite piece is for the reliquary. The relic is a gift.

Just the thing for camp goths with $500 to spare.

Contributions to Bargain of the Day are always welcome, and remember - the Prattle is an equal-opportunity piss-taker and tat of all religions is welcome.

Corsair the Pirate is a right-wing asshole--you read him? Not coming to this site anymore . . . what kind of a pagan are you?

Now that was just uncalled for! I am an equal opportunity asshole! I denigrate morons on all ends of the political spectrum. Since I do however spend an inordinate amount of time bashing the right wing religiods, I am not sure how I could get tarred with the right-wing brush. Must be my support for Isreal and the coming war with Iraq.

I've linked to some pretty obnoxious fundie sites in the past, and will continue to do so--and it doesn't mean I agree with them. In this case, someone had something interesting and relevant to say, and I linked to it. I might not agree with Corsair, you certainly do not agree, but the specific item linked to was completely relevant and even mentioned the Prattle. Indeed, I wish I'd found the auction first...
