Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
Yes, the Catholic Church needs to move farther into modern society to stay relevant, but the biggest thing they could do to prove that they believe what they say would be to turn over all records of child rape to the secular authorities, along with all the rapist priests and all the bishops and cardinals who were part of the international child rape conspiracy. They should also voluntarily offer massive reparations to the victims. When victims have to sue in court for reparations, it's hard to believe that the church sees anything wrong with rape. I've always thought the church was cluelessly medieval. Since the news of all the rapes came out I've upgraded that to actively evil. If the new pope doesn't address this issue in a real way, the church is going to lose more and more people. At some point, why should anyone believe anything they say?

I guess I should add that the church's massive effort and expenditure of millions of dollars to influence secular laws in negative ways (anti-civil rights, anti-woman, anti-birth control, etc.) also puts them in the actively evil camp. They are engaged in a well-funded and well-organized conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution of the United States by tearing down the separation of church and state. A bishop that advocates excommunicating politicians because he disagrees with their politics should get fired by the Vatican.

There is no hope for the church unless it finds a way to be moral again.
