This post will probably piss a lot of people off but that is how it goes sometimes. I am reading lot of stories about the officials of the Roman Catholic Church fooling around with little kids, mostly boys, in a sexual manner. I find this to be a disgusting state of affairs. Men who call themselves servants of God are raping our little boys. What the hell is going on?
I'll tell you what is going on. "CONFESSION" is going on. The Catholic Church has a ritual they call confession and in this ritual you confess your sins to a priest and the sins are forgiven you and you are straight with God again. Simple little exercise, but in the plans of a baby raping monster it can have terrible results. The baby raper does his thing and then goes to confession. He gets forgiven and thus is considered white-robed once again. The baby may be having problems with his bowel movements but the guy who did it is now innocent and clean before God. Ain't this a hoot! And the priest who forgave him might be of the same persuasion as the baby raper. They could call themselves the Brotherhood of Baby Rapers. Helluva deal.
Catholics, for the most part, are not Bible scholars. I went to one of their schools for a semester many years ago and the Bible was never mentioned. What is mentioned is Catechism. This is the teaching of the Church and not not Biblical in nature. It is what the Church says and not what the scriptures say. The kids in the Church schools are hammered with the Church rules from day one. And the Church says that Confession is a sacred ritual and must be respected because it is through Confession that you can obtain entry into heaven. And getting to Heaven is what it is all about! And you cannot confess your sins to God. You have to say your sins to some guy on the other side of a screen. He is acting in the place of God. You never know if God is really forgiving you or if it is just the guy on the other side of the screen.
There is a world wide shortage of priests in the Catholic Church. They don't get very good press anymore. They get funny looks on the street sometimes. Their numbers are shrinking. They are starting to get priests from shithole nations where guys will plead belief in just about anything for a guaranteed place at the table. Survival is a strong instinct. And the big thing is THEY CAN'T HAVE A WIFE. The Church curses them with an unnatural existence from the very beginning. And there is NO BIBLICAL ADMONITION TO DO WITHOUT A WIFE. Is it any wonder that a homosexual would look at the Catholic Church as a good place to get his itch scratched? And is it any wonder that a Catholic Priest is not considered to be heterosexual, because his actions by virtue of not having a woman bar him from that distinction. A Catholic Priest is not a heterosexual. He is not one of the guys. His lifestyle is strange. And he is to have the say in how normal people behave? This is outrageous. But not having wives has given the Church a lot of money they would normally have spent on maintaining families. It has allowed them to build churches and monasteries that they might not have afforded otherwise. But it has left them with a crippled clergy.
So when I read of high ranking Church dignitaries being accused of allowing perversions and such to infiltrate the Church life and functions, I am not surprised. All of those guys who do the baby raping bit are clean after stepping out of that confessional booth. That is their law. In our system of law in this country your criminal past is available for others to read forever. Not everyone can read it, but it is there. In the Catholic Church it is NOT THERE. You come out of that booth and you are a clean soul before God and the Church. You are once again innocent of transgression upon your fellow man. And so the baby rapers are protected. They are moved about the countries from post to post. Though they take their propensity to rape little boy butts with them wherever they go, they are forgiven. Their robes are washed white. But they do their baby raping time after time after time. Funny how that works. Makes you doubt the truthfulness of Church's teaching on forgiveness of sin. And it damn sure will make you doubt it's effectiveness. Stay alive.
