Child molestors being shielded by people who claim they act on behalf of that rebel from Nazareth.

Sigh. I'm tired and don't feel like going into a long-winded post, but I understand exactly why people are Catholic and will continue to be Catholic after this announcement, and I won't lose any respect for them.

Standing for something means giving up a lot of other things and opening yourself up to criticism. Most people aren't willing to do that, in general, and in particular when it comes to familial, cultural, social and community ties to their church. Those are the bonds that are the real glue of support.

A good editorial from Sinead O'Connor. All these years later, can people see why she tore up a picture of the Pope?

I knew why she did it at the time.

But, there was so much (unwarranted) love for JP II at the time, no one would listen.

I've yet to see anyone reference that rebel in this situation.

That was just my response to iron horse's totally irrelevant sentence fragment about our man Jesus, but I mean the priests are the voice of the church, not that anyone is claiming "Jesus made me do it," if that's what you're implying.

it may well have been invoked in order to sway a deaf child to silence.

Would this be an inappropriate time to quote David Cross?

Oh, so if gay people molest kids, it's totally not a big deal. Got it.

Thanks, shithead. Now go fuck yourself.

If you go around proclaiming you are the Head of the Catholic Church, the end-all, be-all when it comes to church doctrine, for hundreds of years, you're going to be held accountable for shit that goes down, regardless of whether or not you knew about it.

Surprise! You get to accept blame and shame, and not just tell people birth control is bad.
