  1. If the cult of Rome wants to see evil it should just look in the bloody mirror.

    From conspiracies and cover-ups, to more than a million dollars squandered to try and demand that some citizens be treated as lesser before the law of the land. (OK, significantly more than a million, but a million they have confessed to, the rest is tangled up in red tape lawsuits as they try and hide their foul and despicable acts).

    I see evil in the self-aggrandizing filth of the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church (well, I would if I believed in “evil” as a concept – when really it is avarice and hunger for power and control and not supernatural at all, because the supernatural is bunk)

  2. Funny how the bishops didn’t stand up againt ‘intrinsically evil’ practices like abusing and then covering up child abuse.

    The hypocrisy of religion is simple astounding.

    1. Actually, they were acting to protect the children, as THEY were the ones who were seducing the priests (irony meter goes off the scale!):

      1. Yes, I saw this before. After I got over the disbelief, I fully understood it was the evil children doing this to the poor innocent priests…. no wonder they covered it up.

  3. The Catholic Church of America is hardly in a position to be saying what is ‘intrinsically evil’ given its own history of child abuse.

    And what he is saying is vote for someone who will make the country more like a theocracy, which is what he would prefer!

  4. Can’t add much to all the above, except the blatant violation of the separation of church and state.
    Tell me, is the Bishop’s church still tax exempt? Perhaps the IRS should look into it, as I was under the impression that not meddling in the democratic process was part of the deal struck with the inland revenue.

    1. The income of recognized religious institutions is tax exempt in America – thus they receive an enormous state subsidy, which is in direct contravention of the constitution. Not sure how that ever happened, but they do stand to lose their tax exempt status if they get involved in politics (in theory anyway!).

        It’s about time the DoJ and IRS actually stripped a high-profile religious organisation of its status as an example to the others. At the moment they constantly violate the law and get away with it, so what’s to stop them continuing?

        The Catholic Church or the LDS would be perfect candidates for such a move.

  5. History has proven time & time again that many of the leaders in the Roman Catholic Church were/are intrinsically evil and this guy apparently is one of them!

    Trying to change the minds of bigots reminds me of the old saying,
    “Don’t try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.”

  7. Religion using fear to achieve social control? Who’d have thought it?

  8. Four word: child rape cover up.
