Its a little odd that if you say youre a scientologist (im not) people look at you like an insane person but if you say youre catholic they dont bat an eye.

Who cares? It's not like a cardinal doesn't have George Pell's benefactor on speed-dial already, so it's not like this asshole priest is going to see any punishment for his (alleged) criminal acts.

Oh, and fark George Pell.

Rev. George William Rutler, the 75-year-old pastor at Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Manhattan, allegedly forcibly touched Ashley Gonzalez on Nov. 4, according to News12. The assault allegedly happened during the overnight security guard's second day on the job,moments after Gonzalez says she saw the priest watching gay porn on an office computer in the church rectory.

Cripes.  Two days in.  If that doesn't tell you about the turnover rate of security, nothing will.

If you're a Catholic, you

support a church fully knowing that it is full of pedophiles and leadership that covers up for the pedophiles. If you're a Scientologist, the Church follows you.

?Why laity why?

If they investigated for real every televangelist in the US, I'm sure all of them are into gay porn/gay sex/pedo/sexual harrassment.

100% of the most anti-gay/anti-trans people are gay/trans themselves, they are just in denial.

There's no way an agnostic or atheist could ever get elected as President. But Biden being Catholic is a stain on his character, as it is with much of the SC.

FTFA:
The allegations have rocked the church led by Rutler, who has condemned "abortionists and the sodomites," criticized Pope Francis, and once hosted former Trump adviser Steve Bannon at the inauguration of a shrine for persecuted Christians. He also once defended former Pope Benedict XVI after he seemingly referred to Islam as a religion inherently flawed by fanaticism.

Oh gee, a "conservative" is an amoral hypocrite who wants everyone else to follow rules he has no intention of following and would sexually assault someone?

EWTN broadcasts from one neighborhood over. It's in the way of a planned road expansion, and I have opinions about that no one cares about.

Not like Italian Catholic families are scarce in Birmingham, but I think we have a few that live in Irondale just to be close to the transmitter. Our pizza place certainly comes across that way.

The minimum criteria for a security guard is that they should be able to beat off a 75 year old priest easily.

If China made a knock off version of Christianity, it would be Mormonism.
Mormonism is a Jesus-themed cult for the easily tricked.

Scientology is just crazy ass bullshiat with no redeeming values, full of nutcases and idiots. Even moreso than "regular" religions. And the fact that I include Mormonism as a "regular" religion (compared to Scientology) should impress any reasonable person how friggin' nutty Scientology is.

I think we have more Greek and Lebanese Catholics in BHM. Well, at least they have better food festivals. And most of the old school restaurants ...(even the pizza places and sandwiches places "The Saris Family") are Greek or Lebanese Catholics, not "Italian". Purple Onion, Saris, Bright Star...etc. The Big Italian "Family" owned restaurants in BHM where owned by the Bruno Family. They had a supermarket chain the kids cashed in a couple of decades ago.

At the head of every cult, there's a person at the top who knows it's all a scam. In a religion, that person is dead.

EWTN is some wild shiat. They're pretty much the same as Bott Radio or American Family Radio when it comes to most subjects. You'll even hear them doing anti-evolution programming, and they're also pushing the election was stolen nonsense. I wonder what the Pope would say about the network if he ever gave it a listen.

Some of these chubby old bishops hit all the stereotypes that come to mind of gay guys..All while
wearing a funny hat...And a few of the Bishops i've seen (St. Louis area has a lot of Catholics and two
bishops in the metro area)  struck me as screaming queens..Like the whole thing is their theater and their
the star up on stage with their glittery robes and all the drama and hand waving and young men
bowing and scraping at their feet....And they present themselves as some sort of diva, living pretty
damn extravagantly, usually in a huge house with assistants and secretaries and the whole thing..All on the churches dime..Kissing ass with the local politico's while riding the whip on the local parish churches like pimps on their ho's to keep that money rolling in...
