    If you needed any more proof that the Catholic Church is led by scumbags

    …the church is now attacking victim advocacy groups in an attempt to defend sex offenders.

    Classy move… you sick, monstrous bastards.

    Catholics put politics ahead of helping people, yet again. Why are charities being used as political weapons?

    This one leaves me scratching my head, but it’s a microcosm of what we’re seeing from the right in general.  Charities have become political weapons with which the right tries to dictate who lives and dies based upon their own antiquated and ignorant beliefs, often with the support of taxpayer money. 

    Late last year we learned that the Salvation Army ordered Bill Browning and his partner, both homeless at the time, to separate before they’d be allowed shelter and food in one of their southern Indiana facilities. When they refused, they were denied desperately needed services. 

    Then it was Komen trying to block grant money to Planned Parenthood, even though those grants did nothing more than help for early detection of breast cancer. (And hopefully survive.) When that occurred we raised millions for Planned Parenthood in mere days, and the ferocity of our opposition forced Komen to turn aside its destructive plans in the end.

    Now we have the Catholic Church, which is heavily subsidized by taxpayers, demonstrating remarkable efficiency in their zealotry against gays and women by denying funding to Francis House, a homeless shelter in Sacramento, California. It makes me wonder why they are so inefficient at turning out known child pornographers and other priests charged with abusing children. And, I can’t for the life of me understand why people support a church that is perfectly content to starve people as punishment for views that run contrary to the church’s beliefs. 

    Seriously, Catholics.  Why do you keep giving money to these people?  Why do you keep allowing these monsters to victimize kids? And most importantly, why do you support an organization that thinks it’s cool to throw homeless people, pregnant people, cancer patients, and LGBTQ people under the bus to prove its jesus freakiness?

NOPE.
There is nothing gay about a single white man in a fabulous gold hat with long flowing robes and matching shillelagh giving out irrational sex and relationship advice like a loose cannon on a sinking ship.
Cardinal Keith O’ Brien is straight as a razor.  Definitely not an alcoholic, judging from his bright red face and drooping jowls. 
Possibly the straightest, purest man on Earth.  I shall totally trust any advice this man gives out as selfless, God-given and worthy of note. 
No ulterior motives at all.

Um, no.  You know what’s like slavery?  Mentally, physically, and sexually abusing children over whom you have complete power, repeatedly, and then doing everything in your power to cover it up.
That’s like slavery.

    "When followers of a particular sect enter into commercial activity as a matter of choice, the limits they accept on their own conduct as a matter of conscience and faith are not to be superimposed on the statutory schemes that are binding on others in that activity. Granting an exemption from social security taxes to an employer operates to impose the employer’s religious faith on the employees."

    German priest admits 280 counts of sexual abuse - BBC

    Catholics, don’t you think your church leaders could do more to stop pedophilia than ‘banning’ priests from contact with children, especially when they know with certainty that these men are abusing kids?

    Per BBC:

    A German Catholic priest has admitted 280 counts of sexual abuse involving three boys in the past decade, saying he did not think he was doing harm.

    Named only as Andreas L, the priest told a court in Braunschweig that he had first abused the nine-year-old son of a widowed woman parishioner.

    After being banned by his diocese from making further contact with the boy, he abused two brothers, aged nine and 13.


    When the mother began to suspect her son’s relations with the priest were inappropriately close, she approached the diocese of Hildesheim, the priest’s employer, which forbade further contact with the boy.

    The abuse of the two brothers then began under similar circumstances, the court heard.

    After contact with these victims was also forbidden, the priest approached his first victim again, writing him a letter.

    It was then that the truth about the abuse emerged.

    "It was never my impression that the children did not consent," the priest was quoted as saying at the trial.

    So I guess my roommate just walked into the lounge and said, “I can’t be in there anymore. I can’t listen to one more abortion video.”

    lovethatquietsallmyfears:

    Little does she know, one of my many Catholic videos/podcasts/songs will get to her some day. Mwahahahahaha! You have a crazy Catholic roommate sweetie. Sorry I’m not sorry. =]

    It’s odd how you Catholic folk seem to only care about fetuses. 

    You have no compunction with giving ten percent (or more) of what you earn to a church that actively covers up child rape and abuse, up to and including your Pope.  If I were you, I’d take that ten percent and donate it to organizations that help former Catholics recover form the horrific experiences they endured at the hands of your Church’s leadership

    That would be a much more constructive use of your time and money.  (Much more constructive than harassing your roommate with your mindless Catholic bullshit, in fact.)

    Anonymous asked: Growing up, I went to a Catholic school and my family was part of the Catholic church accompanying the school. Let me tell you, growing up at the school served perfect contradictions of Catholic beliefs. Almost every year they would raise the tuition to put pretty, unnecessary things in the Church. No money for the school or the poor? They were constantly asking for money to fund them adding on to the church. Also, two priests came out as gay. One of them ran away with a students father.

    Thank you for the message, Anon. I too have experienced many contradictions with the Catholic Church and its adherents, but as you saw from my post, the one that horrifies me the most is the systematic protection of sex offenders. (Which even the Pope himself has engaged in.)

    Obamacare Fail

    americannia:

    blogvader:

    bipartisanbumblings:

    So you don’t consider forcing churches to pay for abortions a violation of their rights?  Yeh.  Good job Obama.  You FAIL.  Only 390 days left…

    Aren’t you a clever little shit?

    Actually, let’s look at this logically.  Catholics are completely cool with throwing health care out the window if it means that women can take a pill that would prevent a pregnancy.  Health care, meaning, preventing sick people from receiving treatment they need.  

    Do you not even realize what an evil little fuck you are for thinking this is okay? 

    This is not an Obama fail, it’s a humanity fail on the part of Catholics.  Granted, given the fact that they’ve institutionalized the protection of monsters that fuck little kids, it makes sense that they would support the forced impregnation of women. It’s a religion led by a member of the Hitler Youth who prances around draped in gold while people beg for food outside his palace, and dumb fucking cunts like you keep throwing your money into their 500 billion dollar pot for what? 

    And, as PFL pointed out, opposition to sex education is an opposition to facts, so perhaps you need to reconsider your fucked, antiquated point of view?

    Fuck you, Catholic sycophant.

    Look at what logically? How you just judged an entire religion based off of a negative stereotype? Maybe people would take your point if you didn’t insult all catholics. You think just because there are a few sick priests out there that makes all of them bad? You do realize we don’t support pedophilia right? Once a priest does that we’d like to believe they’re still good but even if it comes out that they are innocent they don’t get to stay a priest. I don’t appreciate you badtalking all of us just because of your narrowminded biased views against us. I hate it when people think that all catholics are rich and narrominded and strict. If I had a friend who decided to get an abortion sure I might be disappointed but if she thinks it’s the right decision who am I to judge? I’m not for abortion but why would I judge someone else, it’s their choice. And maybe you had a point and I might have listened if you didn’t insult my religion. Next time you want someone to see your point don’t make judgements against an entire group. I’m sure if I wanted to make a point and I used harsh language and insulted all “Protestants” or whatever religion no one would listen to the point I tried to make and I wouldn’t expect them too. How about you try again so people can see the validity in your argument?

    Hey dumbass, did you even bother to read what I wrote?  Let me summarize it for you, as it’s pretty clear you have reading comprehension problems.

    Point one: Catholics are willing to throw health care out the window to prevent women from taking a pill that would prevent an unwanted pregnancy.  (That’s what Plan B does, it does not affect existing pregnancies.)  This is true, and it’s in the fucking article that you also did not read. It’s also fucking evil, and I could give a shit how butthurt you are about it, because there are real people with thoughts, emotions, and feelings who’d be truly injured if your church were to do this.

    Point two: The Catholic Church has institutionalized the protection of people who exploit kids for sex and other depraved acts.  This is also true, going straight up to the Pope, who himself has protected sex offenders.  They do this by intimidating the victims and their families, spending a shitload of money on legal defense (some parishes have even gone broke doing this), and transferring them to new places, with new flocks to terrorize. So where the fuck did I say all Catholic priests are pedophiles, you fucking moron?

    Point three: The Pope is the controller of a 500 billion dollar fortune, and does indeed prance about in golden robes with other opulent trappings, and he does have the sack to hypocritically criticize the poor and others while folks beg for food right at his door step.  He’s a fucking hypocrite

    I hope that’s easier for you to digest, cupcake.  No where in there have I I hope that’s easier for you to digest, cupcake.  No where in there have I accused all Catholics of anything, but it’s a fact that the leaders of the Catholic Church have zero credibility in the discussion about life and supporting life, and it makes me sad that you ignorant fucks hand them your cash every week.accused all Catholics of anything, but it’s a fact that the leaders of the Catholic Church have zero credibility in the discussion about life and supporting life, otherwise you fucks wouldn’t hand these evil bastards your cash every week.
