You'd think that after 1500 years since the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, they would have gotten around to it by now.

/Just proves that there's no pederast for the wicked.

James!: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Aarontology: I thought that aside from the canon laws, Italian law covered most things due to the nature of the treaty between the Vatican and Italy?

Wait? Am I allowed to own a canon in Vatican City or not? I need to know prego.

I don't think pregnant women should be around heavy artillery.


Well, being at the receiving end of a shot did get them into trouble in the first place.

KeithLM: I'm an atheist, and I was raised Catholic, and there's a whole lot of reasons to be anti-Catholic.  It's a "church" that has its own country, and has a huge amount of influence in many third-world countries where it gets to dictate laws that affect human rights and health care.  They have had slaves in Ireland up into the 1980's, and have worked for decades to cover up abuse by their leadership, silence critics, fight prosecution, and just flat out doing everything they could to prevent exposure and liability rather than deal with the problem.   On top of all that they make billions and don't have to pay taxes, then try various financial moves to move money from parishes that are liable for huge claims so they don't have to pay out.  It's despicable.


You know that your factual error makes your point completely invalid right?  They had slaves in Ireland up to 1996, not the 1980s.  You deprived the Church of 16 whole years of slave-owning, and you didn't even compensate it for its loss.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Nabb1: An artist's conception of a FARK thread on Catholics/Catholicism.

A study from the 90s at The Catholic University of America (Dr. Glen Johnson, I believe). showed that Catholics are more likely to perceive anti-Catholic bias in media articles even if no bias was present.

So, yeah.


catholics are butthurt? I wonder why?

Probably because someone pointed out to him after his comments on gay marriage being child abuse that actually abusing children probably was, too.

MrEricSir: Where in the Bible does it say the Pope shouldn't molest children?


"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me "

I think somewhere along the line that particular passage got misinterpreted.

red5ish: Sargun: Fark is so virulently anti-Catholic sometimes it's astounding.

Not just Fark either. It's a sickness. I have many many Catholic friends and they are amazed at the degree of anti-Catholic hate online these days.


The Church put themselves in a position where they have become a punch line of a lot of bad jokes. It's like an alcoholic complaining about all those hateful people making jokes about them being a lush. If you don't like the bad reputation the Church has, put pressure on it to clean up its image and earn back the world's respect instead of whining about bias.

You know, that whole being judged by your works thing. I think I read it in a book somewhere.

When people ask me about my religion, I respond "I went to Catholic school for 9 years."  Some people understand this answer, and some don't.

phalamir: "Awwwww, poor babies. How about this: you remove that giant child-raping beam from your eye, and we'll remove the not-being-happy-with-people-supporting-a-group-that pretty-much-openly-abuses-said-people's-own-children mote from ours? That work for you? I mean I'm sorry I care more for your own children than you yourself do, but I guess I'm just a hateful Satanist for not gleefully offering the little tykes up as an offering,"

They certainly attract a lot of homosexual pedophiles, don't they.

I'm sorry if anyone here is Catholic. I'm not sorry if you are offended, I'm actually sorry - just by the fact that you're Catholic.
It's got to be one of the most ludicrous farking beliefs ever. Like these vampire priests sink their twin fangs of guilt and sin into you as a child and suck your joy of life out of you the rest of your farking existence.
