    Because in the Roman Catholic Church every sperm is sacred, but every Internet content is not.

  2. Great!

    The Internet is far more omniscient than they ever imagined their invented gods could be!

    The Internet = The continued death of all gods.

    1. Though you spoil your comment by sounding almost as fanatical as the god-botherers.

      1. Pavlos, surely you don’t possibly believe in any form of voodoo and gobbledegook, do you? I’m shocked!

        1. Mark me down all you like, but all religions are delusions and it is only rational to say so. It is not fanatical to say so.

    Isn’t O’Brien holed up in the Vatican?

    What’s the big deal, we all download stuff from the internet illegally at some time or another. We are all guilty.

    Not all of the inhabitants of Vatican City are priests and nuns, who have taken vows of chastity. Many are ordinary folk employed in various capacities and some of them will behave like ordinary folk all over the world. It would only reflect ill on the Catholic Church if a person in holy orders has done the download and, even then, it is the responsibility of the individual and not the whole Church. While there is much to criticise the Catholic Church for, a bit of objectivity is always desirable. Would this be a news story if the downloads were made in Australia or Denmark?

      Henk Heithuis died in 1958. For years he was tortured and sexually abused by catholic clergy. According to court records, he was finally castrated to “cure his homosexuality.” This happened under the supervision of a catholic psychiatrist and in a catholic hospital. How many more boys were castrated by the Catholic Church? It is estimated that since 1945 between 10,000 and 20,000 children have been sexually abused by catholic clergy in the Netherlands alone.

      1. Shocking and devastating. Pure evil.

        My comments were not intended to whitewash the centuries of Catholic Church oppression suffered by gays and others. I was commenting ONLY on the story about video downloads.

  7. It will never be “desperate” Ray to undermine the vast and perverting power of those frauds that are the world’s many religious cults.

  8. I click up when I should have clicked down, so add another -1.
