More Entertainment from the Vatican Vanities

So now we have a further episode of women hatred from this sorry bunch of barnacle encrusted old patriarchs aka Roman Catholic Hierarchy.

They have now classified even an attempted ordination of a woman as equivalent to paedophilia and child rape along with the usual heresy charges (what ever that is - perhaps having the gall to break free of the brain-washing cult?) Yes, lump these women in with the thousands upon thousands of predatory paedophiles who destroyed countless children's lives!

But they are certainly clear on the fact that paedophiles are a cut far, far above females, being as they are still ordained and not ex-communicated.

This comes right on the heels of the announcement from the Church of England that they would be consecrating female bishops to bring C of E into full equality.

Co-incidence?

Perhaps they're hoping to catch the onslaught of exits by the misogynists of C of E?

What a perfectly vile institution it is. How any female can be a supporter of such hatred and contempt is beyond my reasoning capacity.

  1. And yet they are its staunchest supporters. It is to weep. (And btw, exactly when has one of those filthy perverts been excommunicated for destroying a child's innocence?)

  2. Yes, it completely floors me, Tessa, to see these women attend such an evil institution and pay for the privilege of allowing it to thoroughly hate them.
    They will never excommunicate the perverts, paedophilia has been an intrinsic element of the RC church since time began (think castrati, et al)and it is only been exploded in the last few years.
    I know many former child victims who never came forward.
    I frankly see RED when I read of their latest utterings.

  3. Is this the 21st century, or have we, all unknowingly, wandered into a time-warp? These guys belong in mediaeval times.........

  4. I'm, like you, especially upset at devout catholic women who by their adoration of the priests and bishops and the pope keep the whole institution going. Never mind that they aren't taken seriously for one minute and only have to be obedient and bring forth children. Yes, even the poor and downtrodden, to add to the agony of their existence. I think it's these women who keep things going and they are blind. They need to be re-educated, because they have been brainwashed. For some reason they believe in the omnipotence of the patriarchy.

    Me too. I have enormous difficulty with how women still support this hateful and appalling institution.
    It feels like it should have been ternminated 200 years ago at least.

    I watch them all going to Mass here on a Saturday night and wonder at their compliance and self-hatred.

  7. Kind of like the women who are faithful followers of Sarah Palin.

  8. I am sad to say that I have a daughter that I love who is a devout Catholic. When I ask her how she can tolerate the terrible Pope and the terrible things the church does to women and boys she says she is working within the church to change it. When I point out that nothing is changing she says she hopes it will. She thinks independently about many things, and only obeys rules of the church that suit her -- she has always practiced birth control. But she has tried, fortunately not too successfully, to indoctrinate her 3 children into this destructive religion.

  9. destructive, restrictive, untruthful, megalomaniacal, extremely patriarchal, unforgiving - there are numerous adjectives one can apply to the RCC. I "left" when I was seven and was told I'd "reached the age of reason." I reasoned that I could not believe any of what the nuns and priests were teaching me. I've been gone ever since. I know several women (family members included) who place great store in their faith, but like you I cannot for the life of me see how they can respect and support the church.

  10. Lost the faith in my 20's (about 40 years ago). Wonder what took me so long?

    I found your blog recently. I'll definitely be back.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
