Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner. Sometimes I feel like my only friend is the bishop who farks me in the City of Angels. Lonely as I am, I never cry.

AbbeySomeone: Asshole you are. Krishnas are one of the least intrusive religions.

It's true. Link

But those Jews for Jesus are just so pushy.

darwinpolice: They're not "rogue priests" if they have the complete backing of the most powerful representatives of the church in the entire country.

And each pedophile will promptly be given a relocation package to a new group of victims.

/isn't religion awesome?

Atheist friend of mine married a Catholic girl in a Catholic church in St. Louis last year. He jokingly asked her before the wedding if the priest had ever molested any kids. The response he got?
"Not this one. The one before him was little girls, though. And the one before that was little boys".

And she wasn't joking.

SquiggsIN: Insurgent: SquiggsIN:

Why do so many people turn to religion after having children or getting older? I always thought the older a person got, the less likely they were to believe in fairy tales?!

a child is a miracle from god. old people are afraid of death. it is quite simple.

not sure if that's sarcasm or not. But, i'll play along... why fear the inevitable?

Because people still want to avoid the inevitable, particularly religious people, who tend to have ambiguous feelings about the afterlife, particularly if they've cornholed children.

The wife and I were just conversing yesterday in regard to our disappointment that our respective sisters have decided to raise their children in the christian faith. It disturbed my wife to the point of tears that her nieces and nephews would grow up questioning logic/reason/sanity/science just so they would "fit in" with the majority of ignorant people around them. We have no children of our own (and don't plan to) but, we both questioned whether it was purely them (our respective sisters) avoiding future conflict at a cost of rationality.

Why do so many people turn to religion after having children or getting older? I always thought the older a person got, the less likely they were to believe in fairy tales?! Does having children somehow delude people into thinking that a miracle must have ensued for them to have said children? Getting pregnant and having a baby is no more miraculous than eating a cheeseburger than taking a dump the next day. It's actually pretty simple biology in both cases.

The catholics have their little mitts into everything and have for thousands of years. If it weren't so profitable to be powerful, it wouldn't interest them.

By the way, the pedophiles of the Catholic Church are equal opportunity abuses; they rape boys and girls.

I'm not a fan of religion in general, but you'd think that after 20 years of this sort of embarrassment they'd make meeting rooms more visible.

A confidential confession is done verbally, but the pedophilia is a visible action. So... glass booths, and meeting rooms with "one way" mirrors so things aren't being done so sub-rosa a priest can stick his dick in kids.

But I guess if they could learn anything they wouldn't be religious.

Lorelle: Old news. During the last decade, L.A. Weekly published several articles about Mahony's attempts to cover up sexual abuse by Catholic priests.

As a non-Catholic, I have to ask. Do they ever ex-communicate pedophile priests, or is that reserved for Catholic women who get too uppity?

I could launch into a terrible anti-catholic rant, but I think Tim Minchin can do it so much better than I:


Not safe for work, catholics, or those offended by the F word..
