Who am I to scoff at what people believe?  Good on them that they actually believe in something, even if it is a weeping tree.  On my part, I think if God was going to cry He would do it in a much bigger way, not just in California, and I doubt he would do it with insect poop.

Codemonger,I'm catholic too and I think these people are crazy.Nothing supernatural about it.Know the appearance of the Virgin Mary at Zeiuton in Egypt years ago,is something different.There are photos of a woman walking around the dome of St.Mary's Coptic Church praying etc. There are articles on this on the internet. She appeared to christians and muslims there and it was shown on their television stations. Now that's the way to go,something big,not bug poop.
These are the same sort of people who believe in Santa Muerta,St.Death, the patron of drug cartels and criminals.
When I saw the crowd in the photos was not surprised.
I do believe there is a God, but He has better things to than this whatever it might be.
More of a miracle would be the poor in other lands having an abudance of food,or the civil war in Eygpt suddenly stopping because Jesus appeared to the people.

How silly.

I've heard that some people worship door knobs. To each it's own; I wonder if they all end up at the same convention each year. I'm fine as a catholic and I believe that the power of prayer really holds no bounds.

Im catholic to but surely I wont worship a tree, let alone insect poo.
This is more the effect of superstition due to poor education and poverty. I feel actually bad for these people, they most be in very bad shape if they all flock around a tree.

Finally got my black belt....

Oh my.  Now I'm never standing under another tree again lest Jesus strike me with bug pee.
