I challenge any Catholic to watch this and still go to church, give to the church, (or even continue to pray to the catholic god) with a clear conscience. If you can, you are very good at compartmentalization and denial.
George Pell, the third most powerful catholic clergy, and already convicted of all charges of child abuse in late 2018, is about to face trial again in March 2019 for another set of child abuse allegations.
How long will it be when the allegations go all the way up to the pope himself? Will he suddenly retire for “health reasons” like his predecessor?
The catholic church is broken. We need to treat it like we treat any other organisation found to have committed, covered up, and perpetuated the most heinous crimes. It needs to be shut down and its assets seized.
But instead, we see them continually being pandered to. We see secular governments kow-towing to their practices. They may well believe in the sanctity of their confessional practices. But that doesn’t matter when it is used to cover up crime. They are no more special than any one else in society.
Of course not every catholic is evil. But if you continue to support an evil organisation, what does that say?
