Child Abuse, Bombing – All In A Day’s Work For Catholic Priests

with 8 comments

Devil Incarnate

Are we seriously going to welcome the Pope to our shores next month, the personification of an institution that has been responsible for appalling evil throughout the last 2000 years?

The monstrous scandal of child abuse by priests and nuns continues and so does the Church’s shameful attempts to cover it up.  Today we learn that Father James Chesney was an active IRA bomber.   See here.  There should be no more allowances made.  The cult of Catholicism is evil and beneath contempt.

Terrorist In A Dog Collar

The Catholic Church is an out of date, irredeemable hotbed of wickedness, sin and shame.   It is all to do with the greed and venality of man, disguised in a power mad, money making machine that has no integrity or worth at all.  It has nothing to do with God whatsoever.  It looks more like the devil to me.

We should deny the Pope entry to Britain and proscribe his church from any privileges accorded to charities or religious bodies.  It has proved itself time and time again to be guilty of the worst possible crimes.  Enough is enough.

“Too many have died in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call”

These are the immortal words of Crosby Stills & Nash.  Substitute “Christ” with any deity you care to mention.

Hoodwinked By The Banker Robbers

That’s you and me.  We’re the one’s who’ve been conned and cheated.  Gordon, Alistair, the FSA – they’re all either criminally negligent incompetents or co-conspirators.

Absolutely nothing has changed in the world of banking.  Is any more proof needed that the people running banks are liars, cheats and thieves?  Aside from the systematic extortion of the taxpayer, none of the promises about lending to the real ecomony or reining in their depraved “culture” have been kept.

Spineless assurances will not do anymore.  The government must radically overhaul the terms of the licences under which banks operate.   Real leadership and responsibility is needed now to ensure that this happens  before the end of the year – not after months or years of consultation and behind the scenes corruption.

Businesses that want to enjoy the huge privilege of serving UK consumers as bankers must be held to a strict and rigidly enforced rulebook.   No participation in casino banking, minimum levels of lending, maximum levels of interest rates and charges, a “right to borrow” for those businesses and consumers who meet straightforward criteria.

These steps are essential to re-establish the operation of an effective market economy.  In a world which has become entirely monetised we can no longer be subject to the rapacious and avaricious behaviour of those who run the money business.
