Letter to the Editor
I’ve always believed that it’s not what you say that matters – it’s what you do. Although the Catholic Church claims to be against priests raping children their actions tell a different tale. Archbishop Bernard Law who covered up the raping of children by priests in Boston has now been transfered to the Vatican. This sends a message that the Catholic Church is more interested in protecting the careers of the clergy that protecting Catholic children from being raped by priests.
Although the Church gives lip service saying that priests should not have sex with children – what they are doing speaks louder than what they are saying. So when the church says that some politicians aren’t fit to take communion because of their stance on abortion – I say that the Catholic Church isn’t fit to give communion based on their stance on allowing priests to have sex with children. Any religion that allows child rape has no moral authority to take a stand on anything.
If you’re looking for a new religion try the Church of Reality – a religion based on believing in everything that’s real.
