The Vatican has never been 100% candid about its savage past, and tends to move behind history’s consensus. For example while they issued an apology about the Fourth Crusade to the Orthodox Church, they also re-evaluated the Spanish Inquisition to conclude it wasn’t all that bad after all.
Who is 100% candid? For instance who you admit to having VD? What if you were strait, but one time you tried out a dude? What about the time you snorted coke in you mom’s bathroom?
When I say ‘you’, I mean anyone really, not you specifically. All I am saying is that everybody has secrets that noone will ever know. The Catholic Church is run by people. People fuck up, sometimes they cover up. What is not happening in the Catholic Church, or any other church eastern or western is that they call for the death of somebody every time they are ‘offended’, that honour lies with Islam alone.
VD isn’t your fault. Say you were a child molester. Child molesters are FORCED to tell everyone what they’ve done.
“High, we’d like you to convert to Christianity.More people have been killed in the name of our God than in the name of Hitler. Our church is being built just down the road you see.”
Actually, the child molestation example itself fits in pretty nicely with the Church…
Islam is currently in a state of disarray. Christianity wasn’t much better a few centuries ago. It isn’t the religion, it’s religion in general.
All organized hatred has come through some type of religion. What was communism, but a religion, after all? Despite it’s adherence to atheism, being forced to believe in nothing is the same as being forced to believe in something. It’s the being forced part that is bad.
I think the biggest problem is Muslims don’t have a good podium from which to condemn these actions. I’m sure the people of the country where you get lashes for naming a teddy after Mohamed are so up to the task of denouncing the government.
I know I’d be hard pressed to come up with the courage necessary to oppose such a brutal and barbaric force.
What we need to see are American and European Muslims coming out to denounce these guys, so they can re-legitimize their religion in the eyes of civilization.
