Last night, Ricky Gervais appeared on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” to talk about his new Netflix series “Derek” but the conversation — as it always seems to do when someone interviews Gervais — moved to religion.

The strange saga of the Scottish public school that allowed American homosexuality-denouncing evangelists to “help out,” and to give children as young as five years books like How Do You Know God Is Real? and Exposing the Myth of Evolution, has just entered a new phase:

Most Holy Water Found To Contain Not-So-Holy Shit

Here’s another small data point in the discussion about whether religion is good for you:

Scientists have discovered that 86 per cent of water samples from holy sources contain faecal matter.
