Paedophile Priests : It’s Our Fault (via The Mad Hatters)

with 11 comments

I confess defeat. I cannot find the words to express the contempt and disgust in which I hold the Pope and his vile church. I do not understand how any decent person (Tony Blair for one!) can possibly continue to support this wicked and evil cult.

Pedophile Priests : It's Our FaultIn his annual Christmas address to Bishops and Cardinals, Pope Benedict had a few words to say about the sexual abuse of children by priests that gained wide public attention during 2010. The ‘humiliation’ the RC church had suffered worldwide as a consequence of the actions of a minority of priests, he said, should be a spur for the church to re-examine it’s teachings that had allowed such abuse to go on for so long.

The sexual abuse of children by priests, however had to be seen in a wider societal context. It was part of the ‘sexual permissiveness’ of the ’70′s that had made child pornography, drug use, and sexual trafficking to some degree permissible.

Representatives of abuse victims have dismissed the Pope’s comments as “absolute nonsense” – as a further attempt by the Pope to evade full responsibility for the actions of pedophile priests and the failure of the Church to help and support the victims of abuse, choosing instead to protect the perpetrators rather than risk damage to the good name of the church should the crimes be exposed.

The Catholic Church – Fount Of Greatest Evil For 2000 Years

with 15 comments

Evil Personified

The Crusades.

The Inquisition.

Witch hunts over hundreds of years.

The oppression of the poor.

Oppression of the Jews.

Abuse of children by bishops, priests, nuns, monks and Church officials over hundreds of years.

The theft of land and property.

The mass deception of humanity for financial gain.

The cover-up of guilt and responsibility for all these things.

The prohibition of contraception to those who know no better and so are consigned to poverty, starvation and death in their millions.

The prohibition of abortion, even to women whose own lives are endangered.

It’s an appalling total of evil, misery and death.  Frankly, I doubt that Islam even comes close.

Yet we entertain, revere and pander to Pope Benedict, this embodiment of the greatest source of evil for 2000 years filled with agony, suffering and death!  Our leaders fawn over him as if there is some significance other than his depths of wickedness.

Even under the terms of his own doctrine he is a blasphemy, a craven idol, a personification of God.  I thought these were sins!

I’d be prepared to overlook his membership of the Hitler Youth, even his dilatory attention to the child abuse scandals and his complicity in the cover-up.  As an old man, I’d be prepared to forgive all of his personal failings but he holds himself up as the Church itself.  He is utterly condemned.

It is nothing less than an outrage that he pollutes our shores, invades our nation, sullies our national consciousness with his presence.  His kisses on our babies are filth.  His deception of our people is an abomination.

Get him out of my country NOW!
