Here's a funny story. Or it sounds funny at first glance.
I will quote only this little snippet:
AN 80-year-old retired priest allegedly bit an ear off another elderly clergyman during a violent brawl over a parking bay in their block of units.
So, these are priests. After I had a laugh, I started to feel nauseated.
These are the men, that speak on behalf of God. These are the men, that are holier than thou.
These are the men that absolve sins, and claim a moral high ground.
Yet, they would almost kill each other, over a parking space....so sad, yet so revealing. Of course, I'm aware there are a far worse crimes done by
the clergy, but this is so stupid, so "human", so primitive.
What happened to "turn the other cheek", or "do not unto others..." ?
What I can conclude from this article:
These people have no basic understanding of the message they are suppose to convey the their "flock". They are not believers of the word.
Clergy is a sham. I've known that most of my life. Things like these only subscribe to that point of view.
You might say I'm a bit harsh here, putting all clergy in the same basket. Sure there are priests that are great people, honest human beings. I'm
not disputing that. Merely disputing the sanctity of the cloth. Yet they would very much like you to believe, that they are holy....their paychecks
depend on that.
