Leave the Catholic church to the rats that run it

As noted by John Wilkins here, the Vatican and its ranks of wizards have been blaming everything and anything they can think of for the decades of child rape that have occurred within their institutions at the hands of their allegedly holy men and the subsequent negligence of successive Papal administrations in dealing with it. After all, God knows a sexually repressed man in a position of power & authority should have to take absolutely no responsibility for raping a vulnerable child; nor should that man’s managers, once in full possession of the facts, have to do anything at all to prevent that man from becoming a serial child rapist. It’s the height of impertinence to suggest otherwise and pure hate-speech to suggest the CEO of the organisation in question should take any responsibility for how that organisation has handled each and every instance of such criminal violence, even if he has been personally dictating how the organisation should respond to such crimes for decades.

OK … back to the real world now, where adults are adults, children are children and any who cross that boundary sexually are unbalanced criminals who need to be locked away from society. Any Catholic with what they would consider a good heart has to take some responsibility for what happens next. If they didn’t know about this Vatican-approved paedophile ring before, they surely do now. To continue to support this organisation spiritually, financially or in any way while having this knowledge is surely not the act of a good Christian. As the Vatican shows no signs of approaching – or even wanting to approach – this problem honestly, openly or in an adult way, it is the responsibility of Catholics to let the Vatican know in no uncertain terms how they feel.

You’re not to blame, folks. I may disagree with you about many things, but I don’t say that you are bad people. Most of you had no idea what was going on. Still, you’ve been duped and betrayed – and it’s time to vote with your feet. Just leave the Church. Stop giving them your money. Stop giving them your support. Stop listening to their excuses; and whatever you do, don’t protect them. Just leave. Go anywhere at all, within reason, because you can’t do much worse. Walk away.
The word to good-hearted Catholics from Russell Blackford:

And do it quickly.

Losing bums on pews seems to be the Papacy’s singlemost pressing concern – far more than making amends with their victims or aiding authorities in punishing the perpetrators of the most widespread paedophile ring in history. So, speak to them in a language they understand. Put the fear of God in ’em – perhaps the Vatican will respond to a million lost customers a little more rapidly than to fifty-plus years of children broken, torn & damaged at their hands and swept under a rug.
