Defending the Indefensible

by duncanr

not sure who’s the bigger arsehole here, Roy Moore, ‘a former state Supreme Court justice and the Republican nominee for a vacant Senate seat in Alabama, had a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl‘, or Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, who invoked the relationship between Mary and Joseph to defend the former judge’s sexual misdemeanours.

“Take the Bible. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,

now, admittedly, I’m an atheist and no great . . .

What makes these crimes even more heinous is the abuser is often a family member

The physical and psychological effects on the victims of such abuse can not be underestimated

Pope Benedict : Gay Blackmail Allegations

by duncanr

pope benedictFolk are continuing to speculate as to the reason Pope Benedict decided to resign.

It’s easy to see why his explanation for doing so is being questioned

He is the 1st Pope in 700 years to resign, and the explanation given – that his failing health means he’s not up to the job – is hardly convincing

True, he is not a young man, and . . .

Paedophile Priests : a Proposal

by duncanr

I found this gif on Google+ under the heading ‘It takes dedication to be a monk’ ***

and left a comment there suggesting this exercise ought to be part of the training regime for those wishing to enter the Roman Catholic priesthood – might result in fewer boys being buggered by the bible bearing bastards

It was a tongue in cheek suggestion but it got me thinking. The priests take a vow of celibacy so why do they need their nuts?

Why not require anyone wishing to become a priest to be physically and/or chemically castrated?

Won’t completely prevent priests sexually abusing children but it would go some way towards stopping it

Not Far Enough !!!

by duncanr

In his long-awaited letter addressing the sexual and physical abuse of children by members of the RC clergy, Pope Benedict apologized to the victims and their families for the wrong done to them and announced measures aimed to prevent the occurrences of such events in the future.

Well an apology is a start but it does not go far enough.

As head of the RC Church, it’s about time the Pope ‘kicked some ass’.

And he could start by ‘sacking’ Cardinal Sean Brady, the head of the church in Ireland – who was part of a panel that swore two victims of child abuse to secrecy about what had been done to them and by not reporting the matter to the police allowed their abuser to abuse even more children.

Cardinal Brady is resisting calls for his resignation – taking time to reflect on his position and seeking guidance from the Lord as to what the Lord would wish him to do

It is worrying that those who set themselves up as moral teachers for the rest of us should have so much difficulty determining right from wrong in their own lives !!!

Cardinal Brady’s action (or rather inaction) allowed a pedophile priest to carry on and abuse other children. While he is trying to divine the Lord’s Will, if I was one of those abused children or their families I would be looking for ways in which I might sue Cardinal Brady for the hurt and suffering experienced – the blame for which can be laid squarely at his door !!!
