They hate children, don't they?

Canadian Cynic: The Catholic Problem - pretty shaved ape has posted a cohesive and comprehensive round-up of the latest disclosures about the Catholic Church enabling and seemingly sanctioning the violence that members of the Roman Catholic clergy (or non-clergy under their authority) directed towards thousands and thousands of children in Ireland, as well the exalted bishops who rationalize somehow that it's not really evil but actually tolerable if you're a "good Catholic."

Go read it.

The only element missing, as the coup-de-farce would be the pope granting a MASSIVE pardon to the sexual predators who "regret" their actions.

As for those malevolent Catholic Church clergy and administrators who derived moral satisfaction from the savage physical, emotional and spiritual violence they inflicted upon the children in their care, they were merely enforcing religious doctrine, that is, they were faithfully "following orders".

it is as though they discount children to such a degree that they don't even register. it never even occurs to these holy monsters to consider that what they've done causes harm. they am the eevi11

thanks for the nod!

Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. - George Orwell - 1984 Book 3, Chapter 3How would they know for sure they had the power to horrifically abuse children if they didn't exercise it?

I just posted a piece about all the crap Sinéad O'Connor was given when she tried to draw attention to this scandal 18 years ago with her infamous SNL appearance.

Indeed, Cliff.

I thought about Sinéad when I read the first news item to appear about the final release of this report.

Ooooh, you've rattled HER cage, dBO. SHE's frantically posting fetus pron in rebuttal. Typical. That's all they got.

Decades of torture and abuse. Generations of rape, beatings, neglect. And that's all they got.

But, but, but, DEAD FETUSES!!!!

I want to live long enough to see the Catlick Church implode totally.

Looks like you hit a nerve there, deBeauxOs. Full metal fetus-fetishizing meltdown in progress.

Inasmuch as I take pride in the blogging that I've done over the last six months about those who use religious doctrine to rationalize away violence against children, I think that many, many other fine and insightful posts have been produced this week.

That is quite a blunt and wide tipping point; it's likely all of those views combined have sent Blob Blogging Wingnut over the edge.

Just check out HER blithering, blabbing post in Dr Dawg's combox here; SHE is more incoherent than usual.
