Church Opposition to Health Care Reform

The Catholic Church likes to lecture on morality and thinks for some reason that abortion in any form is immoral, even in cases of incest and rape. Rather than lecture others they need to review their own sordid history. As noted here:

  • “ROMAN Catholic archbishops in Dublin obsessively covered up widespread sexual abuse of children by priests until the mid-1990s, a report commissioned by the Irish government and released today found.
  • “One priest admitted abusing more than 100 children. Another said he had abused children every two weeks for more than 25 years, it said.”
  • “All archbishops in charge over the 1975-2004 period covered by the inquiry were aware of some complaints and the archdiocese was pre-occupied with protecting the reputation of the Church over and above protecting children’s welfare, the report said.”

Medicyical note: Religious hypocrisy is not an oxymoron.
