Well, it could have been worse. They could have been kept in school and raped by priests.

I had no idea the Catholic Church had chipper deluded apologists like this guy, brimming with enthusiasm. I thought they were all surly Irishmen who just told you to shut up.

Also, lol that the best funded schools in north america and many other parts of the world say openly that they're more concerned with teaching the faith than anything else.
Until Americans believes America works without the help of Mr. Elusive the Invisible Wonder, America will stay broken.

Hey, that's not a complicated issue at all. That's just the Catholic church being dicks because they hate homosexuals.

Father, if you're not gay I'll eat a dick. Hypocritical much? And fuck you for making me agree with Bill O'Reilly, I could kill you just for that.

Father Morris, such a huge douchebag even O'Reilly looks good in comparison.

bill o'reilly is for the kids! (that was supposed to be a wu-tang reference but it didn't come through very well in text)
I'm glad you gave us that little protip because I thought you were referencing this: http://blogs.pitch.com/plog/oreillyforkidscover.jpg

That priest gets so excited about being shitty to little kids.
I bet he likes getting shitty from little kids.

The Catholic Church cannot allow its identity to be thwarted by incorporating people who believe in sexual intercourse between consenting adults of the same gender; the Catholic Church is, after all, all about sexual intercourse between adults and an unwilling minors of the same gender. We must preserve the Sanctity!!!

Five stars for Bill O'Reilly.
What the fuck is this world coming to?
"I'm sorry, sir, but that's just a little *too* absurdly ultra-conservative for Bill O'Reilly."
|CharlesSmith - 2010-03-14 |
It's already been said, but Christ Almighty how do you become so horrible that you make O'Reilly seem reasonable?
That said, any genuinely reasonable person would have ripped that clown of a priest a new one rather than calmly attempting to get him to address the main issue over and over while he ranted about outer fucking space.

Hey everybody, I heard a bunch of priests fucked some kids.
...and the Vatican told all the bishops not to talk to the cops on pain of excommunication and silently moved the offenders to different parishes.
...and the man in charge of the investigation purposely conflated homosexuality with pedophilia in his public statements. He would later go on to become pope and say terrible things about gays, Muslims, and even Africans with AIDS.
If you break Omertŕ in the mob, they only kill you, they don't ban you from heaven.
Pauly wants you to know...that he knows what you did...and he's very disappointed...about what must now be done...to your soul's status within the wheel of Samsara. Very sorry, indeed.
...and in Ireland, churchgoers are being asked to donate so that the Church can pay the financial compensation they are legally required to pay to the above mentioned fucked children.
I actually would like to stand outside one of those churches in Ireland with a hat and beg for "some money for a poor old pedophile; who can spare a Euro for a poor old pedophile"

Say what you will about that priest, but at least he's logically consistent. I have no idea why there are so many gays in the Catholic church, it's like being in an abusive relationship and thinking if you stick it out long enough you'll actually be loved.
I meant to say "consistent with the dogma." And not just Catholic dogma, Christian dogma.
Bill, for his part, is as hypocritical as ever here, provided that he's actually going to church and giving money to these people every week.
|twinkieafternoon - 2010-03-14 |
My favorite fallacy the priest used was assuming the parents were making a demonstration of their homosexuality, and then equated it to if an adulterer ran around town bragging about it, which they would also throw the child out of the school for. There's a name for that one, but I can't remember it.
Begging the question? Assuming a conclusion before you argue in behalf of it's consequences? Help me out here.
It's all mixed up in the "being an asshole" fallacy.

As much as I hate to admit it, I don't see a problem. It's a private institution; they have as much right to kick children of a lesbian couple out of their school as I have to kick catholics out of my house. If they didn't want kids with interracial parents to attend their school, this right still applies.
This is why public education exist.
Important distinction: They don't have a right to discriminate simply because its a private business. As long as you have more than 15 employees you can't discriminate. However there are some exceptions for religious organizations and business necessity. So unless they were going to claim anti-miscegenation as part of Catholicism, they can't kick out kids with interracial parents for that reason.
