hello, from a new and inquiring member
- I have chosen this group to join so that I can really ask WHY people
of intelligence are tied to the Catholic religion. As far as I can
see, this faith is embedded in a fear of Hell, with possibilties
of "buying" redemption. People are kept in poverty by not allowing
birth control, and then expected to praise the "help" given them far
too late for their deliverance. Priests abuse those in their charge,
and the Vatican is the RICHEST entity on this earth, yet does not
give to the poor. It expects the poor to give to the poor.
I am apalled that the World Youth fiasco, recently perpetrated in my
city of Toronto, is out of pocket to the tune of 30 MILLION dollars.
They are asking the PUBLIC for help! The wealth in the Vatican is
sickening, and this "holy man" says he wants to help the poor. Jesus
must be crying his eyes out. This faith is a sham.
