The Catholic Church is a pedophile mafia

Spotlight poster

I’ve finally seen “Spotlight”. And then, for the first time in my life, I grabbed the first object around and angrily threw it on the floor. And, of course, I burst into tears out of helplessness.

Over 1000 survivors in a city with population 600 thousand. Hundreds of predator priests. And the cardinal gets punished by being moved to the honourable Santa Maria Maggiore (guess by which pope...).

If I were one of those journalists, I’d have a lot of trouble trying not to break the fifth commandment... And what a fucking shame that hell does not exist, because I’m absolutely sure that every single one of the priesthood would rot in hell.

I don’t have a shred of respect to any priest. NOT ONE. It’s not that scale of the problem, where you can “not know”. It’s a systematic abuse that corrodes this mafia from the bottom to the very top.

It’s an abuse that directly stems from the very nature of the Church: indoctrinating children already right after they’re born, teaching them that priests are almost “saint” ex definitione, scaring them with hell, staying celibate, enjoying the non-deserved power and wealth of this mafia...

If you join them, you know what you can expect. Even if you don’t, you will eventually. And you keep silent about it. So you’re not much less culpable than those predators who rape children.

The blood of their future victims is on your conscience. The blood of those who didn’t withstand the abuse and the trauma and took their lives is on you too.

I am disgusted with you. My fists clench at the sight of the clerical collar.

Niektórzy twierdzą, że problem pedofilii w Kościele katolickim wynika wprost z celibatu – skoro nie mogą z kobietami, to z jakiegoś powodu biorą się za dzieci. Może i po części coś w tym jest, ale upraszczanie całej sprawy do tak prostej zależności nie jest wcale solidniejszą logiką niż zrzucanie całej winy na homoseksualistów, jak to oficjalnie robi Kk.

You don't get to bitch about those guys having sex, if you support an organisation that protects pedophiles.

I’m sick and tired of biggots treating me hatefully because of my sexual orientation.

Especially, if they are catholic. Why? Because they have even less of a moral highground than the other biggots. Here’s the logic:

Pope Francis wrote a letter to all Catholics, in which he vows no more sexual abuse cover-ups. Cool... So when pope does it, it’s called “a Letter to the People of God”? If I vowed not to cover for criminals, it would be called “basic human decency”.
