Jurors said that in many cases, senior church officials knew that these abuses were occurring yet worked to dismiss victims’ claims and protect the priests‘ –

Symphysiotomy : Fucken Religion

by duncanr

I’ve been two days trying to write this post but have been too upset/angry to marshall my thoughts into a coherent pattern

that doctors, in this day and age, are sawing women in two rather than perform a Caesarian because the former will potentially allow them to have more children in future (in line with the Catholic church goals for families) than will the latter – though tell that to ‘Lily’, who has been unable to have sex with her husband since her pelvis was sawn in two – leaves me speechless with rage

Just saying !

Above the law?

by NobblySan

Stuff like this makes me so bloody annoyed.

It’s diabolical enough that people in a position of trust can allow it to be manifested as power and influence for their own gratification, ……….

Italian Bishops Need Not Report Pedophile Priests to Police

by duncanr

Once again the RC Church demonstrates how out of touch it is with public opinion, at least with regard to pedophile priests.

The Italian Bishops Conference has issued guidelines on child protection – telling Bishops they are not obliged to report to the police any priest that fucks children

Under Italian law, the bishop, given that he holds no public office nor is he a public servant, is not obliged to report illicit facts of the type covered by this document to the relevant state judicial authorities.”

Seems the reputation of the church continues to be viewed as more important than the welfare of young children !

Catholic Foreplay

by duncanr

A Catholic Charity in UK believes couples should pray together before having sex and has composed a special prayer for the occasion.

Called – appropriately enough – “Prayer Before Making Love,” it appears in the Prayer Book for Spouses, published by the London-based Catholic Truth Society.

The prayer asks God to –

“place within us love that truly gives, tenderness that truly unites, self-offering that tells the truth and does not deceive, forgiveness that truly receives, loving physical union that welcomes.”

“Open our hearts to you, to each other and to the goodness of your will,” it adds. “Cover our poverty in the richness of your mercy and forgiveness. Clothe us in true dignity and take to yourself our shared aspirations, for your glory, forever and ever.”

Can’t argue with the sentiment but as ‘foreplay’ I think it leaves a lot to be desired.

Personally, I would recommend vodka and chocolate !!!
