Fierce Baptism

by duncanr

hhmmm, this greek orthodox christian priest a tad too vigorous perhaps in performing this baptism ritual?

he certainly scared the shit out of the kids standing behind him – watch them back away out of his reach !

as for the poor sod getting dunked in the water – he’ll do well if he escapes brain injury (shaken baby syndrome) and is left with just a bruised arse and a dread of water

Being Female Doesn’t Change Anything

by duncanr

female godGod is great and almighty despite being a woman

despite being a woman ???

tsk, tsk, one would think that having gone to heaven and discovered God is not male but female would cause one to view women with a bit more respect, but apparently not ! – http://tinyurl.com/l4s6avz

Polish Priest Refuses to use Toilet Roll

by duncanr

lamba polish priest has accused the makers of Lambi toilet rolls of sacrilege for including the picture of a lamb on their packaging

Father Stanisław Szyszka said . . .

It’s insulting to Catholics that the image so close to us and identified with the Lord Jesus is used for toilet paper . We Catholics cannot reconcile to the image of the Lamb of God on things like toilet paper.”

a spokesperson for the company that makes the loo rolls pooh-poohed the priest’s charge, pointing out that they had been selling this product in 30 countries for 20 years without a complaint – [perhaps a diplomatic way of saying he thinks Father Szyszka is talking out of his arse?]

Paedophile Priest Protected by RC Church – Again

by duncanr

It was only a game

74-year-old Roger Vangheluwe, who resigned as bishop of Bruges a year ago in disgrace after admitting to abusing a nephew for 13 years claimed in a TV interview that he did not think he was a paedophile – there had after all been no penetration, it was just a . . .

Thou Shalt Not Steal

by duncanr

A priest has caused a bit of a ‘to-do’ by telling his flock it’s O.K. to shoplift.

Father Tim Jones told his congregation that the Lord’s Command ‘not to steal’ was not absolute. That the Lord would turn a blind eye if they wanted to do a bit of shoplifting to alleviate their poverty – if that was the alternative to murder or prostituting themselves to obtain cash for their needs.

However if their poverty drove them to shoplift then they should target big stores and the rich and should do so only for as long as was necessary and take only as much as was needed to satisfy their want.

Father Jones’ interpretation of the Good Book and his advice to his flock has not gone down well with local police or politicians. It remains to be seen whether the Bishop endorses Father Jones’ view !!!

Christianity comes up trumps again.

by NobblySan

Even Quentin Tarantino couldn’t make up some of this stuff…

punchHard on the heels of the wriggling and squirming being done by the Roman Catholic church, comes news of the fact that the Serbian authorities are investigating goings-on at an Orthodox church-run rehab centre for drug addicts.

The goodly godly chaps running this establishment offer to cure people of their addiction by a program of ‘pleasant conversation‘….oh, and beatings. We mustn’t forget them, must we.

If this video is of one of the ‘pleasant conversations’, then I wouldn’t wish to watch one of the beatings.

Likewise, if the burly twat in the video is a priest, then you wouldn’t catch me trying to sneak out of church without putting money in the offertory plate.

But the money was only resting in my account…..

by NobblySan

ted  Feck!

Ahhh… you can’t beat the Roman Catholic church when it comes to shooting themselves in the foot, can you?

Hard on the heels of that Pope feller, upsetting just about everyone but hardcore devotees with a few choice comments, we had an Italian minion of his, spouting off about the non-existence of Santa Claus.

Of course, all this lot came while the civilised world was still tutting and giving knowing winks about the whole ‘Roger the altar boy’ fiasco, and the ensuing hamfisted attempts at a cover up.

..and don’t even get me started on AIDS, overpopulation, and all the dogmatic shite that gets reeled off on those subjects.

 But now we learn that a couple of entrepreneurial priestly chaps in Florida are up in court, accused of  putting the proceeds from the weekly collection to good use. All $800,000 of it.

I know that they generally like to do things on a grander scale in the US of A, but I suspect that our local vicar would give his right arm for $800,000 worth of collection to even be tempted by.
