RE: Damned Catholics
Not to mention that Catholics in Spain got butthurt.

It is also bizarre that Catholics in Spain are complaining about how people wouldn't dare mock Muslims when churches in Spain are adorned with statues of St. James killing Muslims (Matamoros).
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Pope Francis keeps up Vatican tradition of tacitly supporting fascism - tells Italian newspaper he's 'not sure' if Ukraine should be given arms to defend itself from fascist Russia. The Pope also says he's not sure about the Kremlin propaganda claim that NATO provoked Russia into attacking Ukraine.

So, it's ok to shield paedophile priests in the Vatican, it seems. But it's not ok to protect your country from unprovoked invaders who murder, torture & rape people.

The Pope doesn't have a dog in this fight. This is the Russian vs. Ukrainian Orthodox churches, with Kirill salivating over those churches that he can save from the devil, and bring back into his corrupt fold.

It must be a cultural thing where it is apparently cute to give seven-year-old girls alcohol if it's by a priest in a church.

Quote:A South Dakota family went unexpectedly viral after filming a 7-year-old during her first communion ceremony.

Stefanie Heidebrink said her daughter was nervous before going up and kept asking her how much wine should she should drink.

Brynley went up and took more than a sip. The whole church laughed as the child kept drinking and then nonchalantly walked back to her seat.

Yeah, it's so funny how children don't know how to drink alcohol.

I don't recall being given wine at my first communion.  I don't think that was a thing.

Kids learned to drink at wedding receptions where the booze flowed freely and there were hundreds of people in attendance.  The adults would drink some of their free drink and set the glass down on a table to go dance or eat or whatever and the young boys (mostly) would run around and guzzle partial drinks until they were passed out, puking, or both.  Even when I was pretty young I could see how this wasn't a good idea and as I got older it explained the massive consumption of alcohol all around me.

About 10% of Ukrainians are professed catholics. If Russia takes over they'll be forcefully converted.

Catholic clergy feels discriminated because they are called out for their own discrimination policies.

Quote:Canadian panel urges not hiring military chaplains of religions that exclude women from their priesthoods

Bishop Scott McCaig, the Catholic military ordinary for Canada, called the section on redefining the chaplaincy “deeply problematic and regrettable.”

“Many of the pejorative remarks would appear to be directed to Catholics, as well as some other Christians, and amounted to mere caricatures of what we actually profess,” he wrote. He said the advisory panel’s report was full of “errors and oversimplifications.”

But Catholics do believe in an oversimplified caricature of reality.

This article is a bit long but worth to be read in full as it covers disclosed crimes of the Catholic Church in Ireland. Here are just a few snippets

Quote:The beginning of the fall of the Catholic Church in Ireland

“We can no longer ignore the fact that much of what the church has built up in Ireland over the last two centuries is crumbling before our eyes,” said Bishop Duignan, the 13th man to hold the position in Ireland’s youngest Catholic diocese.

“Many no longer believe the message. Many of our parishes are struggling,” he said. “Despite great work done by generations of priests, religious and lay people now, at times, it feels like we have been out all night without a single catch.”

Galway holds a key place in the recent history of the Catholic Church since Duignan’s predecessor, Eamonn Casey, came to grief 30 years ago after it emerged he had fathered a son, Peter, with American Annie Murphy.

“He presented as not at all remote or distant like many bishops which made the revelations of his double life, his cover-up, his hypocritical preaching on fidelity and responsibility and family planning all the more galling, all the more difficult to credit,” she went on.

In 1992 when Casey fell, Ireland was still comparatively innocent, even with realities hiding in plain sight, such as the Magdalene laundry on Dublin’s Sean McDermott Street which did not close until 1996.

It meant the exhumation of the remains of 133 women with a further 22 discovered later. All were former workers at the laundry but only 75 death certificates existed for them, despite it being a criminal offence not to register a death.

Back then, of course, no one had yet heard of Tuam and the almost 800 children buried there without trace. Many years would pass before Catherine Corless began her work to remind all that they, too, had once lived.

It followed a three-month investigation during which a friendly priest, also a canon lawyer, advised then editor Conor Brady: “If you’re wrong or if you can’t prove it, the church will destroy The Irish Times.”

Within five years a priest would have to be buried at night to escape the wrath of abused Irish Catholics and their relatives when Fr Brendan Smyth was laid to rest at 4.15am in late August 1997 at a graveside in the Cavan countryside.

Among the hidden realities to emerge in his case was the discovery that former Catholic Primate Cardinal Seán Brady had questioned children abused by Smyth in a 1975 inquiry and sworn them to silence.

Years later, it became clear that this was standard Catholic Church practice worldwide.

Soon more such revelations unleashed powerful waves of suffering and emotion across Ireland, so many the result of casual, sometimes merciless cruelties compounded by the indifference of those with power.
