Holy water might be dangerous to one's health – a problem that doesn't effect Atheist.

Tests indicated 86 percent of the holy water, commonly used in baptism ceremonies and to wet congregants’ lips, was infected with common bacteria found in fecal matter such as E. coli, enterococci and Campylobacter, which can lead to diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, and fever.

Now aren't you glad you ain't a Catholic.

Is disgusted cat Catholic?

With the tongue protruding out it's mouth, I'd say yes - a Catlick.

GROAN!!!!!  Pat, that wasn't BAD, that was YUK!!!!

That explains all the rotten tomatoes splattered on my window.


And once again, science takes one of religion's pet concepts and demonstrates how (literally!) full of shit it is!

There was also discussion about this in "Holy shit! Much holy water contaminated with fecal bacteria", including non-holy-water health hazards of pilgrimage.
