The Catholic Church have been having a bit of a rough patch these past few decades. With all the child molestation charges being brought up against them, they have had to spend millions of dollars trying to appease those selfish bastards that were savagely molested as children. Be it hush money or lawsuit payouts, the Catholic Church have dug deep into their billions of dollars in surplus, forcing many of their clergy to fly around the world in coach and eat red caviar instead of black.
In order to help the poor church, Bishop Denis Brennan came up with the only reasonable solution, he asked the parishioners to help pay the spiralling compensation claims. Seems perfectly logical, why shouldn’t those that were abused and quiet about it help the church fend off those selfish bastards that expect justice?
Strangely, Sinead O’Connor seems to have a problem with that. Seeing as how Sinead O’Connor is also a ‘Godly’ person, her opinion shouldn’t be taken lightly. In an interview she gave, she was asked her thoughts on God and she replied:
I would say that I’m religious by culture and nationality. It wasn’t that I was dragged to mass; I went willingly because I liked going. Religion is not so much a lifestyle because I don’t necessarily actively practice it. I don’t go to church regularly, but I don’t think you have to in order to conduct a relationship with God. Having said that, I do enjoy the times that I do go to church. I believe you can find God all over the place.Source: www.thefish.com
Regardless of whether you accept her opinion based on merit or whether you agree with it, her response to Denis Brennan is well thought out and entertaining to say the least. The best part is at the very end, where she points out what many have been thinking for generations … if Jesus were to come down to earth, he would burn the Vatican to the ground. The fact that she would help, along with half the planet, is just a bonus.
Her article was posted in Ireland’s Independent. The entire article is copied blow.
PLEASE allow me to express my astonishment upon reading the statement made on the evening of March 1 by the Bishop of Ferns, Denis Brennan.
His statement attempts to dictate to us — in the same way the Inquisition did — how Christians should behave. It says directly that it would be anti-Christian of us to feel that the church should pay its own bills for its own abuse with its own billions that it throttled from our grandparents, whom it also abused, physically, emotionally, psychologically and sexually.
Evidence of sexual abuse by clergy, according to the Murphy report, can be traced as far back as 320 AD and the first treatment centres for paedophile priests were created in 1940, named Servants of the Paraclete.
These centres were opened all over the world.
I would like to know exactly whose idea this latest plan was and from where were issued the instructions or permission for Bishop Brennan to make such a statement.
The statement and its attempted manipulation of good Catholic people could be described as unbelievable and stupid.
But in my opinion, the only word that does it justice is ‘evil’.
How long do they expect us to restrain ourselves? We have put up with this bull dung for hundreds of years.
A true Christian is someone who, in any given situation, is supposed to ask themselves what would Jesus do, then try to do that.
How an organisation which has acted, decade after decade, only to protect its business interests above the interests of children can feel it has the right to dictate to us what Christians should do is beyond belief.
From the Pope on down, through the Vatican and therefore through the lower echelons, the whole organisation, in my belief, is utterly anti-Christian and evil, as proven by centuries of torture, bloodshed, burnings, terrorism, and coverings-up of “the worst crime” known to man.
And if Jesus Christ is to be seen in the vulnerable of this world, then all the church has done is crucify the man over and over and over again.
If Christ was here, he would be burning down the Vatican. And I for one would be helping him.
