Seriously, When Will This End?

More rape and abuse uncovered. But, it seems to be old news. If we don't get pissed about this shit, what will we get mad at? Oh, that's right, basketball officiating or Lebron James playing for the Heat.

When is some government, somewhere in the world going to step up to the plate and bring the Catholic Church and the Pope to justice?

Really, haven't there been enough rapes yet? What's it going to take? Some snuff films to be released?

We treat religion with such kid gloves that it makes me sick. Let's get this out in the open right now; the Catholic Church is corrupt, criminal, and evil. Any Catholic who thinks they are innocent because their church isn't involved in these scandals is kidding themselves. Where are all the Catholic protesters? Why do Catholics still pour money into the church? If Catholics don't demand a total overhaul at the Vatican, which includes a criminal investigation of the Pope, then they are complicit in the crimes. The rank and file Catholic should be telling their church leadership that they are going to withhold tithes and refuse to attend services until their church publicly denounces the crimes committed by the church over hundreds of years, that still continue to this day!

Why this will never happen? Because Catholics are basically the property of the church. Here is a tidbit from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (which is the official text of teachings);

“Having become a member of the Church, the person baptized belongs no longer to himself, but to him who died and rose for us. From now on, he is called to be subject to others, to serve them in the communion of the Church,and to ‘obey and submit’ to the Church's leaders, holding them in respect and affection.” (Catechism, No. 1269)

So, as a Catholic you are bound to submit to leadership. I find this startling. The church has set itself up as being god here on earth. These are just people. There isn't anything holy or sacred about them. They are as criminal as Osama Bin Laden or Charles Manson. Maybe worse, since they prey on the young and weak. They prey on innocence with intimidation. Let's get this straight, right here, right now......a percentage of Catholic priests have been and continue to fuck children. Is that harsh language harmful to your ears? Well, too bad. It's time to stop all this dancing around. The current Pope is guilty of sitting on his hands when he was in charge of discipline, as a cardinal at the Vatican in the 1980's. The Pope.....yes THE Pope, the holy man, the one who has god's ear, turned a blind eye to children being raped. I simply can't believe that the outrage isn't so widespread that the church hasn't crumbled under the pressure of it all.

If you can't trust a child to a priest or to the Pope himself, who in the hell can you trust a kid with? Seriously, a child should be in just as good a hands with a person of god as they are with their parents. These people have the balls to tell people what god wants, as they commit the very worst of crimes. It's pure insanity. Instead of sending troops all over the globe to protect our oil interests, we should send the military into Rome and shut that hell on earth down. Wasn't it enough that Rome befriended Hitler and the Nazi's?  Now, we have to let them hurt children too? How in the hell are they getting away with all of this?

If you want to find out just how much the Catholic Church wants to keep its' members dumb and donating, just read this article;

Here is a quote from the above article by Bishop O'Donoghue, of Britain;

"Taken together, these intellectual trends have resulted in a fragmented society that marginalizes God, with many people mistakenly thinking they can live happy and productive lives without him.

"It shouldn't surprise us that the shadows cast by the distortion of education, and corresponding societal changes, have also touched members of the Church. As Pope Benedict XVI puts it, even in the Church we find hedonism, selfishness and egocentric behavior."

These people (Catholic leadership) are not to be taken seriously. They have damaged and are damaging life on our planet to a great degree. I think an important question is; why would anyone take the Catholic Church, the Vatican, or the Pope seriously about anything? Another question is; why has this organization not been brought to justice?

This isn't just about rape. The Vatican has proclaimed that the use of condoms are sinful. And then, they send out their minions all over the world, especially the impoverished nations of Africa and tell these people they will burn in hell if they use condoms. Well, that's pure evil. AIDS is a catastrophe in Africa. Preying on the uneducated is shameful. People are dying. Children are dying. But, why worry about that, right? Just so long as you put a drop of water on their head, read a little Latin, they'll be OK with god. But that's right after they die a slow, horrible, agonizing, and painful death. Well, at least they die with the churches blessing.

Pope Benedict himself is a part of this sickening criminal and negligent behavior. He was a part of covering up the abuse and he is currently a part of allowing the suffering in Africa. He was a part of moving priests around to new churches in the USA or abroad when they were accused of rape. He (along with other Vatican officials) actually refused to defrock a priest who molested 200 deaf boys, despite the urging of several American bishops.

Here is an exerpt from the above article;

The internal correspondence from bishops in Wisconsin directly to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict), the future pope, shows that while church officials tussled over whether the priest should be dismissed, their highest priority was protecting the church from scandal.

And, Pope Benedict could easily decree that the use of condoms would not mortally wound the soul, even if the Vatican frowned upon their use. It's that simple. But, the church would rather cling to ancient doctrine rather than improve the lives of millions of people. And why on earth would the current Pope say that it's permissable for a male prostitute to use a condom, but not say the same thing for Africans?

So, there it is. I've railed on this subject before, I know. But, it infuriates me. It's so wrong that the governments of the world still open their arms to Pope Benedict. If you can't stand up for children and their right to live a life that doesn't involve fear of rape and molestation, what can you stand for? How can millions of people continue to give their loyalty to an organization that condones the suffering of children, without any punishment being doled out. It's insanity. It's evil. That's all there is to it. There is no reasonable explanation for the continued support and idolization of Catholicism. It's failed and we, in modern society, still hold this organization (which collects it's money tax free in the USA) in esteem. I know some people say "Well, God will punish these people" and that's not good enough for me and it shouldn't be for anyone else. These people are criminals and if it were a school principal, a day care teacher, or a sports coach that was doing this to children, we'd be outraged. I guess if screwing a kid is done with a collar on, we can look past it, right? That seems to be the case so far as I can see. We are worse off as a species for this.
