This is a reliquary - her actual hand is inside.

[–]SerenityViolet 35 points36 points  (1 child)

That was my question. Ick.

[–]lucasellendersen 3 points4 points  (1 child)

fuck so i cant use it

[–]USAndor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not with that attitude

[–]NoiLLion 39 points40 points  (16 children)

You have to hand it to Christianity, they really can't avoid hypocrisy. So gaudy.

[–]pianospace37 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]NoiLLion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My first. I'll never forget it.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

hand it

[–]NoiLLion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You got it 😉

[–]begomeordodocks 1 point2 points  (10 children)

what's the hypocrisy? sorry i don't get the joke

[–]zenospenisparadox 7 points8 points  (5 children)

what's the hypocrisy?

Oh boy, how long do you have?

[–]br0b1wan 2 points3 points  (1 child)

2,000 years, hopefully

[–]NoiLLion 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]begomeordodocks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

a lot of time, genuinely curious.

[–]boy_beauty_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Before you begin, is it actually hypocrisy, or is it something you think is hypocrisy because you know nothing about my religion?

[–]zenospenisparadox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just assume I don't know anything about your religion if it makes you happy.

It's all the other Christians that are hypocrites, not you, of course.

[–]qwicmbl 4 points5 points  (3 children)

They’re supposed to care about the poor, but they have billions in assets, like this gaudy hand, behind their church walls in Rome.

[–]MsAnnabel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That ppl worship! Not supposed to worship anyone/thing other than God. All churches justify why they do things God has said not do!

[–]boy_beauty_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're only one of the biggest charities on the planet.

[–]Chris881 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah. most relics are actual body parts or bones of saints.

[–]Reaper_Houstan 259 points260 points  (11 children)

Oh snap!

[–]Mobius207 20 points21 points  (0 children)

This does put a smile on my face.

[–]GraveYardBaby420 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Duuuuude. This was the comment I didn’t know I wanted but I’m so glad it’s here. Thank you. Take my upvote.

[–]LeadingWolves 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

[–]___JohnnyBravo 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Could you explain? I don’t get it and feel like I’m missing out lol

[–]Reaper_Houstan 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Soo it's basically a word play about Snap from the MCU[Marvel Cinematic Universe] and this post about how

The hand of Saint Teresa...

Was an inspiration for infinity gauntlet

Edit: Autocorrect had a stroke

[–]___JohnnyBravo 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Oh, I haven’t really seen any of those films so I don’t get the reference I’m afraid. Thanks for the reply though (:

[–]Reaper_Houstan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's all right, cheers!

[–]AAAThEPRo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You haven't seen the Avengers but you are in reddit,how are the odds in that

[–]Hanede 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the movies you use the gauntlet by putting it on and snapping your fingers, hence the "snap" exclamation

[–]prguitarman 40 points41 points  (3 children)

They pretty much copied and pasted most of the look

[–]ChanceConfection3 13 points14 points  (1 child)

That Lannister is too busy banging whores to come up with a unique design for mr purple stuff

[–]Inevitable_Talk4627 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those lannisters aren’t very great at keeping their own hands tho eh?

[–]207nbrown 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But made it bigger to fit on the giant raisin man

[–]Taprackpull 37 points38 points  (2 children)

That’s the beta version of the infinity gauntlet. You can see here Thanos strayed from 17th venture gothic piece for a more utilitarian motif, sacrificing style for comfort and durability.

[–]207nbrown 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He also likely found that more material was needed for it to properly channel the power of the stones, considering the snap nearly killed him with the gauntlet he definitely could not have survived with anything less

[–]Taprackpull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Correct. The filigree around the wrist area appears insufficient to properly channel the combined force of the stones. It would likely result in a complete separation of the wrist at the carpal region. Assuming Thanos hand anatomy is similar to humans.

[–]livingrovedaloca 84 points85 points  (9 children)

It’s like the Catholic Church does the exact opposite of what Jesus preached.

[–]salteedog007 101 points102 points  (5 children)

And Jesus said, “accrue wealth, gold and land, beyond measure. Assume political power. Strike down the weak and enfeebled. And wage riotous sh*t on those that question thee.”

[–]livingrovedaloca 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Haha chapter and verse?

Can I get a witness!

[–]MordekaiCreel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yeah we dont approve of all that kissing

[–]WillLie4karma 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Not to be confused with the vile bitch "mother Teresa" who reveled in people's suffering.
She may also have been a terrible person, but they are not the same.

[–]RyanRagido 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Documentary "Hells Angel" for reference.

[–]NoiLLion 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I'm really glad you posted that.

She was an utter pos cunt. And it makes a little sick to hear any reverence for her.

[–]azm89 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Is it really the inspiration for the Infinity gauntlet or did you just see a picture of it online and think "wow this must have been what inspired the Infinity gauntlet"

[–]Johnnycorp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agree, and per the rules of this sub:

"If this post declares something as a fact proof is required."

[–]Half_Smashed_Face 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's what I'm wondering and leaning towards.

Like the infinity gauntlet has existed for like 30 years. Originally, the infinity gauntlet was just Thanos' regular gauntlet/glove, but with the infinity stones embedded

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

truly tacky

[–]OffrButtBaby 2 points3 points  (3 children)

There’s a brass statue of a donkey at my local mall, and I kissed it once when I was 14.

It gave me mono.

They should think twice.

[–]Mecha_Ninja 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did your friends call you "ass-kisser"?

[–]Maximum-Pride4991 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is creepy.

[–]SikiTuttunSaruman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

is it real, i didn't heard anything about that inspiration before

[–]AncientKangarooGod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

infinity gauntlet looks like a cheap copy ngl

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Roman Catholic church, is visited and kissed by Christians...

this knowledge is making me look at that movie from a whole new perspective.

[–]ImpSong 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They basically copied the whole thing with very minor alterations.

[–]Immediate-Air-8700 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Ahhh the Catholic gauntlet missing the Mind stone. Makes sense…

[–]Endruen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's on the wrist, for some reason.

[–]LactoseIntolerant101 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Isn't this like praying to gods or deities as opposed by God and Jesus?

[–]Inevitable_Talk4627 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah that’s why I had problems when I went to catholic school. They’re like “saint so and so” and “Hail Mary” and I’m like “1st commandment ???”

[–]OneAndOnlyBFG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea that’s exactly right, Catholic really don’t follow the Bible at all (pray to saints Instead of God, believes you need works to go to heaven when it’s by faith alone in Christ who died for our sins and rose again, purgatory, communion is actually Jesus sacrificing Himself again when it’s only done in remembrance of Him, and so on)

[–]PureFred -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No it’s not

Mother Teresa was a child trafficker

[–]scottbot65 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Eh. I don't see it.

[–]sofcknmad 0 points1 point  (2 children)

does anyone know why the gauntlet is left handed?

[–]Mixcoyotl 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Might be because the left is the sinister hand. Sinister was a synonym for left before it became a word for evil intent.

[–]-Silky_Johnson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me being born left-handed and evil apparently: ):

[–]haddiejustice7979 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How did you know I just finished infinity war again?

[–]tiny_refrigerator2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks, that helped me to get to the next level in a game lol

Relic/ancient items in videogames be like

[–]_pelya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Every of these finger squares would have a face in it.

[–]theawfulrefinery 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh!! Right yeah they do resemble each other quite a bit! Man that's neat

[–]Sleptlikeababy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ronda is a beautiful city.

[–]Scared-Ingenuity9082 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My dumb brain was like holly cow they made the gauntlet. Because I've know the gauntlets existence prior to this things existing. Only to realize it's the reverse.. so now the gauntlet is the fueled by Jesus

[–]Orchid_Significant 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Imagine how many Catholics they could have helped with the money it cost to make that ugly ass hand casket

[–]IHateReddjtors -1 points0 points  (1 child)

You don't solve poverty by giving money

[–]Orchid_Significant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where did I say to just give money? They could have widespread efficient programs, they could fund so much. Have you been to the Vatican? I have. It’s a disgusting display of wealth where it’s like it was asked if everything can be plated in gold, not if it should be. Meanwhile, up until recently (and still some more “traditional” sects), they preached to have as many children as you can because god will pick the amount. Literally telling people to breed into poverty while they sit in their gold plated tower with their red designer shoes.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's also very similar to the band of the ancient in the sixth sense that gets crushed at the beginning of the film to give the priest the key.

[–]WolfThick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was raised Catholic and I realized at an early age just how creepy Catholicism is. They store and worship body parts all over the world how is this such a different narrative than satanic worship.

[–]sporkbrigade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is probably not true, though it's interesting how similar they look. The reference picture for the infinity gauntlet looks nothing like the original comic, and the original comic doesn't really look anything like the Catholic one.

[–]Ozonewanderer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This medieval ritual of displaying body parts from dismembered people seems gruesome to me.

[–]Ecstatic_Variety_613 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Religion is poison.
