Just What You'd Expect.

Did you know that the catholics have a patron saint of dogs? His name was Saint Roch. Supposedly, he caught the black plague back in the 1300s, then ran into a forest to hide. While there, a dog stole food for him and licked his wounds till he got better.

There are churches, schools, even towns named after him. And in Prague, there's even a statue of him (see photo).

So what's up with that? The dog gathers him food... the dog heals his wounds... but he gets canonized?

Typical catholic bullshit.
