People are stubborn. I believe this to be true because most people are dumb. If you’re not willing to entertain a new idea just because you’re a closed-minded turd, you’re dumb. Which brings me to the Catholic church. Catholicism is about as practical and antiquated as Pennsylvania liquor laws, yet millions of people flock to their local cattle chutes week after week because their dad went, and his dad went, and his dad’s dad went. It also makes people feel a lot better about writing off that grasshopper martini at the airport as a business expense. You know that liquor isn’t included, you little cheat.
Hopefully Catholics were listening loud and clear when the Pope most recently opened his mouth, because if they were, there’s no way they should be affiliating themselves with an organization that believes in what its fearless leader is peddling.
In one of his more asinine and inflammatory statements, the Pope came up with a great excuse for his stable of pedophiles (AKA – priests), and why
pedophilia has run rampant throughout the Catholic ranks.
“In the 1970’s paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even with children.”
You have got to be kidding me. My theory on the Pope’s stance on child abuse is this: he has never seen the movie “Sleepers”. Yet another really solid
reason that demonstrates why there’s no need for organized religion in society. The Pope is supposed to be the upstanding moral leader of millions of people and he’s so out of touch with reality that he thinks that sexually molesting children was okay in the ’70’s because everybody was doing it.
“…fully in conformity with man…” Holy shit. I’m really having a hard time wrapping my head around this one. It’s really out of my realm of understanding for a grown man to justify sexually molesting children because in his weird social circle it was acceptable.
Could you imagine the chaos that would unleash itself upon organized religion if the Pope actually believed that bullshit rhetoric he farted out of his mouth? Think about applying Pope logic to gay marriage. The majority of the world is open to that concept, so the Catholic church should be performing them because it’s in conformity with man, right? Sadly, I doubt we’ll be seeing that any time soon.
That’s called a double standard. That rule only applies when justifying why thousands of children were robbed of a normal childhood by creepy spunk monkeys who should be locked up for the remainders of their meaningless lives for the benefit of the rest of society.
I suppose when it comes down to it, you have to look at things dispassionately; if you take moral advice from a grown-ass man wearing a silly hat like that, you’re probably dumb enough to agree with what he has to say in the first place.
