RE: Damned Catholics
"Mother" Theresa has a new documentary about her

Quote:Mother Teresa covered up for Catholic Church: A new documentary series on saint's 'darker side'

The three-part series, which will air on Sky Documentaries on May 9, Mother Teresa covered up for the Catholic church's greatest excesses and seemed more drawn to poverty and sorrow than truly helping people escape it. 

"Her spirituality was related to Jesus on the cross," said Mary Johnson, who worked with Mother Teresa for 20 years. "She believed that being poor was good since Jesus was poor. It's schizophrenia, you know," according to the Daily Mail report.

More importantly, Mother Teresa's final decade was maybe her most trying. She was getting on in years, but the church needed her aid to preserve it from the mounting crisis of priest child molestation.

Really? Momma was a schizo?
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"

(May 8, 2022 at 8:11 am)Fake Messiah Wrote: 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.

You want to hear disgusting? Back when Catherine Corless first publicised the fact that there were eight hundred babies buried on the grounds of the mother and baby "home" in Tuam, murdered by the nuns' neglect, the Irish Times did its level best to traduce her and blacken her name. They knew she was right but still tried to silence her.
As a species, we are fucked. To the next generation, I offer my inadequate apologies.

Quote:3 Texas Catholic churches vandalized with pro-choice messages

Funny how Catholic Church sees itself vandalized when someone else thinks they have a right to make some exterior changes on it while, at the same time, they think they have a right to order women what to do with their bodies.
