While it is not my aim to offend anyone of the Catholic faith, I simply have to ask what’s up with the Bishops?

Not only have they declared war on marriage equality, but recent incidents show that they have declared war not only on the Democratic Party but gay equality in general.

On the subject of lady parts and the things women should have available to them. “In 2002, at the height of the outcry over the sexual abuse of minors by Roman Catholic priests, the Archbishop of New York, Edward M.

Sunday Late Night: The German Bishops’ Porn Publisher

By: Sunday November 6, 2011 8:01 pm

Why anyone listens to Catholic bishops on any aspect of morality is entirely beyond me. Protecting pedophiles? Check. Profiting off porn? Check. Politicizing their parishioners? Check. Blaming Woodstock for their own moral and organizational failings? Check. This world-wide operation needs to be shut down for the criminal enterprise and exploitative gang that it is.
