Folks, we’ve said this a million times.
All religion is nonsense.
The cow-piss drinking Hindu idiots, the whacko Muslims with their priapic delusions of virgins in paradise and then there are the Christians.
Take for instance the Catholics. Here in the U.S. for the last few years, the Catholic Church has been enmeshed in one sex offender scandal after another with shameless, scumbag pedophile priests being involved in buggering young boys, sometimes as young as 7-years.
The Catholic Church has handed out over $1 billion in compensation to the victims either to settle the barrage of lawsuits or as hush money in confidential settlements.
It was not just young boys that the Catholic Priests were buggering.
Some of the Catholic priests even took on young women as lovers and had children. No kidding.
Today’s New York Times has an interesting and moving piece on a Catholic Priest who even fathered a son with his lover.
Sadly, both the mother and son are now suffering from cancer.
Here’s an excerpt from the NYT piece:
Ms. Bond separated from her husband, and for the next five years she and the priest, the Rev. Henry Willenborg, carried on an intimate relationship, according to interviews and court documents. In public, they were both leaders in their Catholic community in Quincy, Ill. In private they functioned like a married couple, sharing a bed, meals, movie nights and vacations with the children.
Eventually they had a son, setting off a series of legal battles as Ms. Bond repeatedly petitioned the church for child support. The Franciscans acquiesced, with the stipulation that she sign a confidentiality agreement. It is now an agreement she is willing to break as both she and her child, Nathan Halbach, 22, are battling cancer.
Remember, the next time you hear someone call a Catholic priest Father, it’s possible the term ‘Father‘ is being used in the literal sense.
