That wasnt directed at you at all. I just meant people in general. When I tell people that Im catholic, they roll their eyes and eventually the
"alter-boy" jokes start.
The church wont change to suit some members wishes. They will let them leave. If your catholic, youll understand that. Our religon will remain with
the views it holds now. Always has, always will.
Just a thought. When I meet a black person, can I make slave jokes? Or when I meet a jew, how about a holocaust crack? Better yet, what if I have a tv
show, and I constantly rip on them? Would I not be taken off the air, and probably get shot? You bet. Anti-semite, racist pig...
Yet so much time on tv and print is devoted to rippin on us. What those priests did was disgusting, and what was worse was the cover up. I will never
defend them or their actions. That being said, its a SMALL number of the people that is represented. Yet all of us pay for it. Let me make a crack
about all blacks being criminals or jews being money hungry though.....
Doesnt it seem a tad hypocritical?
