Vatican blasts anti-Catholic 'hate' campaign

VATICAN CITY - The Vatican heatedly defended Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday, claiming accusations that he helped cover up the actions of pedophile priests are part of an anti-Catholic "hate" campaign targeting the pope for his opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.

Vatican Radio broadcast comments by two senior cardinals explaining "the motive for these attacks" on the pope and the Vatican newspaper chipped in with spirited comments from another top cardinal.


They really just don't get this:

They are claiming to have moral authority over 1/6th of the planet.
They claim that one can only be good through submission to their pope.
They claim to have been guided by their god through their pope.
Yet, something self-evidently wrong to anyone who isn't a creepy 50 year old muslim, having sex with children, did not result in being excommunicated from their church.

They insist on sticking to their story that sexuality and sexual urges can be prayed away. This flaw in logic and ethics reveals itself in a number of ways:
1) The shuffling around of child abusers instead of banning them from all contact with children. They honestly believed that these people would not offend again. This is totally at odds with systems in place in Australia where by a sex offender is never allowed to have contact with children again. If you can't get a blue card you can't teach or mind children. If they were serious about protecting children they would have sacked the offending priests and called the police immediately. I don't believe in god/s and I know to do that.
2) Their insistence that being gay is a sin and that the sexual orientation model is flawed. They presume to tell two adults what they can do in the privacy of their own bedrooms whilst protecting child abusers from the law. They claim moral authority, standing in a church, standing in front of the parents of an abused child, getting a hard on while the choir boys are singing, yet somehow they don't understand that this is wrong. I would have been too ashamed to breath!
3) They insist that they can instruct people on sexual issues such as the use of condoms, divorce, virginity of girls and extra marital affairs while they are raping children. They are probably sitting there with the residue and blood of injured children on their cocks while lecturing other people on sexual issues. WTF?!

Then their leaders have the audacity to accuse people who are trying to stamp child abuse out of society of being anti-catholic. If it is anti-catholic to not want children sexually abused then sign me up.

The mind boggles!
