Roman Catholics should be ashamed

27 June 2013, 14:02

Once again ladies and gentlemen, I am forced to address you on the matters of faith that you so vehemently toss about as a source of all moral goods and absolutes. Well it should come as no surprise to you that despite the fact the public voted against gay equality, the courts have ruled in favour of the minority to be allowed equal rights. Thankfully, democracy is not so corrupted that the will of bigots can yet be forced on those who don’t want it.

Now I don’t want to be accused, ladies and gentlemen, of ignoring the facts, and praise should rightly go to religions that support equality such as The Episcopal Church and whoever else who takes that line. Good on you. I make no argument there.

No, unfortunately it’s the Catholics who should rightly be so ashamed of the hate speech that comes daily from the leaders elected in the church. Let’s take a look at the Roman Catholics stance on the ruling for a moment, and contemplate the utter evil and hatred pumped from their position of power into the minds of the public.

“Today is a tragic day for marriage and our nation. The common good of all, especially our children, depends upon a society that strives to uphold the truth that marriage is between a man and a woman. Now is the time to redouble our efforts to witness to this truth.”

The only thing tragic about yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, is that people are still listening to these decrepit, deceitful, wrinkly, immoral old virgins (assuming sodomy of the altar boys is non-existent). That somehow, these people who we should be relegating to the streets to have them shake cans of small change at us, while we drive past with our doors locked and windows up, are still being followed as though somehow they know what’s right and wrong when it comes to sex. This is how you must do it because God told an 80 year old virgin, how to do it.

The only reason we listen to these bigots is because they have the word “priest” strapped to their backs as though it gives them some sort of divine knowledge of Gods mind.

This is puerile, ladies and gentlemen. Even if there was a God, then they couldn’t conceivably know any more than I do. If they did have such sources of information that they claim, I cannot believe they are only able to convince 18.85% of the earth’s population they are right. No, they don’t know any more than I do, they couldn’t and they can’t, they just claim they do. Well I’m sorry they lose by default.

How to create long term wealth fo...

I believe, in the real world, life actually follows reasonable principles. Despite the baffle and Bull, the short term push and pull, even exploitation, eventually the multitude of forces kicks you back to reality. For us that simply means, if as a country we want to grow, we have to invest.  Read more...

I constantly ask myself what is the point of everything? A complex question and awfully deep but I know it is a question not unique to me. Possibly many of you have had similar thoughts. But really what is the point of it all? Read more...

Focus on what truly matters

“Never” is an infectious word, like a flu virus. Once you’ve caught it, everything loses its sparkle. It’s commonplace to hear people say and swear that they will never do, forget or say something. Read more...
