Video: Daily Show John Hodgman fixes Priests doing it to little boys with Alter Monkeyson April 15, 2010 at 12:39 pm
The Catholic Church is hardly recognizable from when I was a kid. Back then we never new about this issue at all, individual priests and Diocese advocated for the poor, were political involved in the Civil Rights movement and the only negatives were mean Nuns and how easy Catholic girls were.
Now we have a decades long news story of priests having sex with little boys. The Catholic Church leads the reactionary religious right denying women free choice and shooting doctors in the back, while it stands firmly against giving women any power within the church at all. And to top it off, the Pope used to be a NAZI for Chrissake.
I was only 15 when I found myself too busy to go to confession one Saturday afternoon, but because grandma was in town and at mass, I took communion anyway, without a pang of guilt. That was the moment the relationship was forever over. I suppose that’s how you know any relationship is over, walking away without guilt.
