Anti-Catholicism, the new trendy politically correct hate

Recommended Posts

The Catholic Church is not some big international corporation that owns all the local Catholic church assets. They are locally owned. That's one of the reasons why the Reformation in England was such an assault on the ordinary working people -- Henry VIII and the ruling elite stole property like gold chalices and crosses that belonged to the local communities and stole the communally used land which the church just "owned" in trust. The "wealth" of the Catholic Church is likewise exaggerated. You can't just rip out the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel ceiling and sell it on eBay.

It's true. Seems it's okay to badmouth Catholicism, but at least one other major world religion is apparently off limits.

Catholicism... 

A religion that has harboured paedophiles from prosecution - moving them from one parish to another if they thought that the truth may get out.

A religion that persuades it's followers from using condoms and contraception - leading to STI's and some poorer areas of the world struggling with over population.

All religions are nothing but cults and fairytales told to convince people that there is some higher purpose in their life and to allay their fears of death.

You missed, to relieve people of their money.

That is so wrong and in my view obscene. Half the world is starving and we see ads on tv for a few quid to operate on a cleft palette, or a few quid to help get clean water, yet these sorry groups have billions

What happened to to idea that religion is a caring sharing thing.

F***ing hypocrites the lot of them

That's easy to say though, isn't it? Not like those are bank balances that they can go and draw on. It's like adding up the gross estimated value of every building and chattel in the possession of the government and saying that is what the government is worth. OK, but it's not liquid or disposable.

Not that I'm claiming any merit for religion in general.

But then, there’s the revenue,  Woolley. A billion catholics giving what 0.1-1.0% of their income every year. Not up to Living Hope levels but not trivial. 

They're in surplus you can bet it.

It is. They invented the Christian cult. You don't actually believe the New Testament was written by Jews indigeneous to the Province of Judea do you? The texts are extraordinarily ignorant of Jewish religion, culture, the Hebrew language, and the general history and geography of the region.
