church child abuse (from 2002, boston globe)

jan 26th, 2008

shivaji's blog posted this link. i think it's instructive and deserves its own post. surely they have learned how to commit buggery more carefully, and to cover their tracks better, five years later.

Yeah, buggery and paedophilia is a 2000 year tradition with the christist church. The buggers *invented* both and have since perfected it to a fine art. Even outside of the clergy, ordinary christists are prone to buggery. Of course, this is to be expected from trailer trash. But, even the best of "aristocratic" families in the highest echelons of the U.S government have homosexuals in their midst. Dick Cheney's daughter is lesbian. Dick Gephardt's son is gay. Not to forget "conservative" christist senator Larry Craig of "wide stance" fame, caught propositioning a police officer in a public toilet....

I will commnt once again
In Island, a very late work, one of his character says: "Somebody ought to make a historical study of the relations between theology and corporal punishment in childhood. I have a theory that, wherever little boys and girls are systematically flagellated, the victims grow up to think of God as - 'Wholly Other'... A people's theology reflects the state of its children's bottoms. Look at the Hebrews - enthusiastic child-beaters. And so were all good Christians in the Age of Faith.

The Catholic Church has only lost about $2 Billion from the entire scandal. This is a drop in the bucket for them. I think it's an incredible coincidence that sonia maino came into power JUST as this entire scandal was blowing up.

In order to make up for this loss, the church has offered their support of samuel reddy in stealing donations from the Tirupati Devasthanam Hundi. They have calculated that they can make up the loss from the sex scandals within three years with the gold from Tirupati.

Not a bad scheme.
