Silly Catholics


Yesterday when I shared the statement by the Catholic bishops, I thought that was all we will here of the condom debate and I even said the Catholics are better than their creed, but it appears I talked too soon for I have seen a response by one faithful catholic that I ought to share with you.

The gentleman asks a very telling question

Has anyone ever wondered why the Catholic Church is still around more than 2000 years after the death and resurrection of its founder, Jesus Christ while other churches continue to die and reincarnate in all sorts of new names?

I thought the answer to this question should be obvious. Sheep beget sheep, so in many cases the sheeples just keep siring sheepish Catholics, but it seems I was wrong. He tells us

The answer is simple

What is the answer if we may ask?

The presence of an infallible teaching authority that has never erred in matters of faith and morals and is thus reliable and credible voice of conscience in a world that seeks to deny authority and create its own versions of what is right and wrong.

No, this guy is not my neighbor! I thought I was reading an article written by the pope in 1900, this level of faith is shocking and the ignorance appalling! This guy is a real sheep! Who in this day and age thinks the pope is infallible and what matters of morals has the church led unless he means hiding pedophiles, stifling dissent and treating women as less equal than men by failing to ordain women priests, not that I care who is priest or who isn’t, among other things.

He goes on to tell us who a good Catholic is. He tells

A good catholic only abides by the teaching authority of the Magisterium[ a group of old pedophiles and eunuchs] as custodians  of our rich heritage in scripture and tradition.

Rich indeed, what with burning people in the stakes, destroying the library in Alexandria, stifling research in medical fields, preaching against use of contraceptives to ensure its coffers are full every Sunday. Indeed the it has a rich history!

He continues by telling us he is proud to be a serf. That it is great to be one. Listen to the good Catholic

We live in a world that believes in autonomy, independence and relativism and so submitting to such an authority seems backward. On the contrary, it is in obedience that we are great!

No, you can’t be great as a slave! You can only be foolish to think so. And yes it is backward to think that some guy who wears red sandals, lives in a big mansion in Vatican city and wears purple dresses should tell you how to live your life.

Now he gets real stupid

Human sexuality is a faith and moral issue and thus good Catholics know who really is the authority to guide them in matters concerning our bodies as sexual beings.

This fellow must, it seems to me, confesses to the priest when he masturbates! For him to need guidance on when and how to have sex, this guy needs help. This kind of person who goes back to the father to ask how to engage in sex with his wife because he never had an opportunity to learn on his own unless he was kept by a priest..

The Catholic church will continue to be the voice of conscience and moral sanity despite all the ills that plague it.

Seriously, that the church will continue to protect the children abused by its pedophile priests! It is like encouraging sheep to have faith in the wolves even they have been eaten several times by the same wolves!

Jesus did not have perfect disciples but this did not stop him from entrusting them with the great treasures for our salvation.

Has anyone ever wondered why the disciples were fishermen and not any other trade? In my village, fishermen are the least educated and would believe anything they are told and I know my village has more educated fishermen than the ones who could have followed the Jesus fellow [whose existence is doubtful].

I knew a warning had to be here some place

Don’t attack the messenger; acknowledge the richness of the message.

This is one of those times that both the messenger[an idiot] and the message [crap] have to be attacked for the good of us.

He finishes by saying

good Catholics are not fooled by such misinformed directives since they can tell the difference between a good shepherd and the wolf.

I agree, the good Catholic must be an idiot of the first degree!

    Religions come and go, the Egyptian religion lasted for some 3000 years and then collapsed. Since christianity has been planted with violence, it will be wiped out with violence. It was seeded for political reasons, it will be weeded by political reasons.

    As long as humanity will not evolve to the übermensch (in the nietzschean sense, not the nazi one), we will have the endless cycle of one religion being replaced by another.

    The catholic church has lost all its relevance centuries ago. If I will succeed in the creation of my own country, I will not recognise the vatican as a state and its head certainly not as head of state. He will be persona non grata and will arrested the moment he put his feet on my soil.

      How can I disagree with you on this.
      I would wish that my country dispatches the apostolic nuncio back to the Vatican and the church to start paying tax on its real estate and all churches to be taxed on their earnings.

      The sooner the Catholic Church dies the better for all of us. It is using its billion followers as leverage to force its policies in many places around the world.

        It’s questionable whether the rcc has actually that many followers, many people are catholic only by virtue of being enrolled in the church register. Many of them do not believe in its teaching or its authority and do not give a crap about these closeted homosexuals.

        Th rcc is the only surviving part of the government of the roman empire, and it’s a barbaric relict (to speak with Keynes). This institution is only interested its own survival and takes refuge in sophistry in order to do so.

          since they don’t remove names from the register unless you are excommunicated or you day, they will be counting even those who have left to claim they are many.

          Most Catholics in running their lives do not care about the eunuchs at the helm of the church has to say.

    Everyone is entitled to believe or not. However, when the belief system is riddled with worldly possessions and wealth while children go hungry, where hundreds of millions are homeless, where innocents are slaughtered to sit back and judge the rest of us is where I draw the line on decency and respect. I cannot give any credence to anything that belief system espouses. That the belief system continues to aid and abet its’ clergy who engage in the rape and abuse of boys and women has abdicated any moral authority it perceives it has possessed.

    By the way, my good brother, not only does the clown in the Vatican wear purple with red sandals, he wears Prada slippers! How ostentatious is that! Much love and naked hugs! 🙂

      We must draw a line at some point. For the church to object to planned Parenthood and access to these services for the members of their congregation is passing the line. Any such belief system that sees women as incubators and others as pawns in their games of power, that is where the line is drawn!

      The pope tells his faithful to pray to get for help when things are thick and drives in a bullet proof Merc just in case god is busy while he is praying! What hypocrisy!

    Is this man talking about consulting the same institution for moral instruction, that between 600 and 1600 AD, burned alive anyone who possessed a Bible written in any language other than Latin, which the vast majority couldn’t read?

    Is he really advocating that we take sexual advice from a bunch of old virgins?

      you know a person needs help when sexuality becomes a faith issue. The question that comes to one’s mind is at what point did it stop being a biological issue to one to be refereed by the pope in red sandals?
