A list of some of the contributions that the holy mother church has made to society over the ages. And yes, I am being very sarcastic.

Somebody should try and let Michael "(the pope is the)greatest man alive" Coren and Bryan Fischer know about this.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.

It's amazing what Catholics can ignore about the deeds of their church leaders. Both over the centuries and even ongoing today. I suppose those who can handle it bone up on it and those that can't ignore it or never think about what little they let hit their eyes or ears, before they shut down. I know Catholics who won't address the crimes that go on or pass it off as an isolated case. What can you do?

There are only two types of religious people, the deceivers and the deceived. SS

The list is kind of a crappy list as far as list listings go. Really they could have selected many things that were not pedo/antilgbt/antiwomen based. Nothing about their horrible actions throughout history...

"...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

This is better. If gives reasons for being upset with the Catholic Church right now as opposed to some distant time in history. Catholics are conditioned to believe all the Church's mistakes have happened "in the past." They can't ignore the present.

Seems to me I'm already boycotting the Catholic church. You know?

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?
