No need to go ad hominem, this is theology, not preaching. You don't have to marry the cow to study it.
Art is an art. And in a way, looking at the church and how it can preach one thing and do the opposite, and on such an epic scale, now that's art, but it's an artform I don't necessarily like! Apologetics and denial, their virgin-mother libido, human sacrifice, coveting and storing immense wealth, the child abuse scandal.... The church is a cesspool stored in magnificent buildings built by enslaved saints, a hooker preaching chastity. If the Pope was a word, he would be an oxymoron.
Yeah its shocking isnt it, thats one of the reasons I love Gods judgement so much, so many people who think they are, are not, and will get what they really deserve.

Are you looking forward to getting what YOU deserve? Or, are you hoping for grace. I recall someone, somewhere, saying something about reaping what ye sew.........
