Okay. This is on the side of what I call ridiculous. This is why I have issues with the Catholic Church and their head honcho the Pope.
This “leader of the church”, goes around to all these places. People weep and people go to him. They think he’s just the holiest man. One step down from Jesus basically. They flip out when one of them dies and they have to choose a new Pope. But then when they do choose a new Pope they just go back to their churches and get in a little box and confess all their sins to a preacher.
Now who does the preacher tell his sins to?
All these pedophiles within the church community. The Pope says nothing. Sure he says, “They shouldn’t have done that.” But then he also doesn’t say, “These men should be persecuted by the law.”
Why the hell not?
Any other non-Catholic Church leader, comes in and says, “I’m a pedophile.” there’s an outcry everywhere about how this person should burn in hell and be executed that day. But if he’s a “man of the cloth” we have to forgive him and let him go? No that’s insane.
I don’t care if the Pope exonerates Jews for Jesus’ death. If they’re Jewish, then by his terms they weren’t going to heaven anyway because they don’t believe Jesus is the Messiah. So what good does this announcement do for them?
When the Pope decides to write down and condemn all the members of his clergy that are molesting children and getting away with it, then perhaps I’ll be interested in what he has to say.
