Catholic Priests Supporting Pedophilia… Again

Starting the blog off with an easy analysis of an article I saw on the “friendly atheist” blog by Hemant Mehta. The situation is this: a bill proposed in Ireland that would make anyone who has knowledge that someone is guilty of pedophilia required to report it to the authorities. Failure to do so would mean up to 10 years of jail time. Now who would oppose that? It turns out our great friends, the Catholics.

Religious proponents are always quick to dismiss the Catholic priests molesting children as a one-time thing, or something that has at least been rectified. No one seems to want to believe that this is an ongoing issue.

Here’s a tweet from @CatholicLeague, the leading group fighting for “Catholic Civil Rights”, which, apparently includes the right to bear false witness. Who knew?
