Another Murdering Fanatics

Apparently, according to one judge, A preist killed two people back in '02 becuase somebody found out he had molested children.

Why is is becoming more and more common place to hear about preist or pastors killing and molesting people, or religious fanatics blowing themselves up in subways or bombing abortion clinics?

And why don't you hear about Athiests doing these kind of things?

I think the reason I don't is because as a humanist I hold life very dear, and would not want to sacrafice it needlessly.

funny, so many priests touching boys, yet they hate gay people, more contradictions!

Oh dear.

You athiests fail to notice how much more interesting it is for the press to find an ironic contradiction.

It's much more interesting to read about a Catholic priest molesting some kid than to read about your average ho-hum athiest.

It's the irony that makes the story more interesting, not the religion alone.

The 'e' comes first, Maddy.

No it is the fact that the catholic church actively protected men who raped children and then purposely moved them to different parishes; where suprise, suprise the raped and molested more children. How can anyone stay associated with the catholic church? Personally, when an organization that I'm associated starts protect men who rape children, I stop being a member of that organization. Of course, maybe my standards are too high.

Joe Davis: I think your standards are about right.
