I think I'm sorry for you, for missing out on simply living. What could a God possibly care if people sing and dance? Music is one of the Greatest Gifts mankind has! Music and laughter and joie de vivre... without them, well, what a drag. A long, drawn out drag of a wasted human existence. For what?
Perhaps you might want to take a position that is actually true to the Greek language,...
So would the nun be pleased to know she has flashed the symbol of allegiance to Satan while on camera. If God means everything to her would she be proud of herself. That is up to her to decide
I know the teachings of my own catholic faith very well. So well that I nearly became a priest. Catholicism is all about living like Jesus did, not hiding away from the rest of the world in holy huddles and certainly not condemning someone for standing up in a secular world and affirming her faith.
So she runs to a singing competition where she can be judged by four people who are Idols to other people? How is that affirming her faith? If anything it contradicts it. Not only that, she has become an Idol herself and do you really think that she is going to stick to what she says after this is all done and dusted? Wait till the $$$ signs kick in and then we will see the true intentions of this Nun.

Ok then let's get back on topic - The Hand Signal
Anyway, this is something that seems to pop up a lot regarding celebrities, politicians, even the pope himself so this is not some hand signal which means nothing. It is a distinct signal of Satanism.
But just when you think you have seen it all, you see this also and to me this is more disgusting that knocking a 25 year who done it herself because if you a proud to do anything George W.Bush has and will do, you are one f/d up person.. So here's what they have at the top of the religious structure and I have no doubt that they still have it there.
So for the sign being a nothing, a lot of people seem to do it in the high places and I refuse to follow them.. Idolaters. But I guess it's nothing though..

I knew there was a reason I didn't like those UT Longhorns! They're all a bunch of Satanists! That Hook 'em hand sign ... it IS the devil.
Beat me to it, BFFT.
As a proud Wildcat, I've been seeing entirely too much of that Hook 'em sign and stupid side of beef that goes with it.edit on 4-4-2014 by ketsuko because: (no reason given)
Superstition In Italy and some Mediterranean cultures, when confronted with unfortunate events, or simply when these events are mentioned, the sign of the horns may be given to ward off bad luck. It is also used traditionally to counter or ward off the "evil eye" (malocchio). With fingers down, it is a common apotropaic gesture, by which superstitious people seek protection in unlucky situations (It is a more Mediterranean equivalent of knocking on wood). Thus, for example, the President of the Italian Republic, Giovanni Leone, shocked the country when, while in Naples during an outbreak of cholera, he shook the hands of patients with one hand while with the other behind his back he made the corna. This act was well documented by the journalists and photographers who were right behind him, a fact that had escaped President Leone's mind in that moment. In Italy, one can also "touch iron" (tocca ferro) or touch one's nose. Males in Italy and some other countries may grab their testicles when confronted by bad luck; however, this is considered more vulgar.
I think you will find that Jesus was a full human and nothing more than a prophet.. He had 12 followers and some of them also wrote testimonies so why would they be less valuable than his?
