Catholicism: No Shame

As they have done in the past these folks seem unable to show contrition. To them it appears to be simply a matter of saying they have sinned and all is forgiven.

Medicynical note: As an organization the Catholic Church has harbored more abusers of women and children than almost any other currently active organization. It would seem to lack credibly on moral issues.

This is not just ancient history. During WWII while there were heroic individuals, the church seemed to tolerate Nazis and ignored the holocaust both in Italy and elsewhere. Later in the 20th century they aided and abetted atrocities against indigenous peoples on almost every continent (not Antarctica), they shielded abusive priests in the U.S., and to their everlasting shame participated in the atrocities of the dictators in Argentina, Chile and Franco’s Spain.

Now while still paying off previous victims they offer advice on morality.

Addendum: And this on November 18 2022. Our Supreme Court is dominated by this group’s “theology.” Unbelievable.
