Do I smell the sweet-foul fragrance of Hyprocracy, a nosegay like a floater just washed up on the riverbank? Oh, say not so!

'Tis, huh?..... Well, shit!

The humor is in the hyprocrites, as usual, and the thought of what Pope Benny might say when/if he hears of it.

Faithful Furious Over Tactic
Catholics express shock over lawyer's arguments that a woman who sued Portland archdiocese for child support should have used birth control.

By William Lobdell, Times Staff Writer


In 1994, then-Archbishop of Portland William Levada offered a simple answer for why the archdiocese shouldn't have been ordered to pay the costs of raising a child fathered by a church worker at a Portland, Ore., parish.

In her relationship with Arturo Uribe, then a seminarian and now a Whittier priest, the child's mother had engaged "in unprotected intercourse when [she] should have known that could result in pregnancy," the church maintained in its answer to the lawsuit.

The legal proceeding got little attention at the time. And the fact that the church which considers birth control a sin seemed to be arguing that the woman should have protected herself from pregnancy provoked no comment. Until last month.

Hmm. Seems not to involve buggering alterboys. That's a relief.

I'm gobsmacked. Not surprised by the level of hypocracy, just surprised that they'd be so blatant about it.

I'm surprised they didn't claim some sort of miraculous divine impregnation. Hey, it worked once before!

This might be off topic, but impregnating someone without their knowledge or aproval, aint that against the law?

God is guilty of date rape.

Well, no.

It turns out that Mary was really parthenogentic, gave virgin birth to what turned out to be a noisey and not a little demented rabble-rouser, and blamed it all upon a God who really had no part in it but couldn't find a decent lawyer in the Holy Lands to take his case. And thus, God got blamed for all of the evils of Christianity: the Crusades, Inqusition, Jerry Falwell & Pat Robertson, and so forth.

It is not recorded that he ever had to cough up child support, but it is probable that he did. TANJ!

Yes, this is true in any parthenogenetic vertebrate. However, it is not common knowledge but Jesus was the first sex change candidate, and thus the portrats of him looking like anything but an inhabitant of the Middle East.

Say, I'm pretty good at this! P'raps I should go into Christian apologetics...

Nope. Mary never got a kiss nor dinner from God. He just raped her. Just plain old sexual assault and rape.

(I never got why Joseph bought that whole "It's the son of God" thing. She slept around on him.)

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini
