I met the devil at Rennes-le-Château...



This "unusual" holy water font was placed in a small parish church in southern France by its priest, Bérenger Saunière during the lavish redecoration of pretty much the entire town financed by hush money he accepted from the Vatican after finding buried in the floorboards (or being given!) some amazing and gothic secret, perhaps along the lines of Jesus having children with Mary Magdalen and their bloodline having been preserved by a secret society predating (but ultimately controlling) the Knights Templars or some such thing. Anyway, nice devil, eh?
