Fact: 98% of Catholic women have used birth control

As much as the Catholic church may fight Planned Parenthood and fight birth control, Catholic women just aren’t listening, and neither are the men.  Of course, Jesus never said anything about contraception, so this is just another invented teaching of the Catholic church that they want to fight for.

“According to a study by the Guttmacher Institute, most women, including 98 percent of Catholic women, have used contraception.”

The 2% of Catholics who don’t want women using contraception tried to fight the study, but were shot down by Politifact:

Catholic pedo priest Fr Larson raped 17 children, 5 committed suicide

Catholic pedophile priest Fr Larson raped at least 17 children in the Kansas City area, and at least 5 committed suicide.  Eric Patterson, Gilbert Rodriguez, Paul Tafolla, Bobby Thompson, and Daniel Romey lie in rural graveyards today.  All of them ended their lives by gunshots, drugs, or in an invisible cloud of odorless gas.

Most victims of child rape by Catholic pedophile priests are suicidal at some point in their lives.

Are Catholics trying to find and help other victims, including ones other than the 17 that we know about?  Of course not, despite the fact that Jesus said in Matt 18:10-14 that you should find every sheep that leaves the flock.

Did Catholics punish Fr Larson?  Of course not.  After he spent 5 years in jail (after being defended by a church-paid lawyer), Fr Larson lived out a comfortable retirement at the St John Vianney Center in Missouri, paid by Catholics.

At least 55 Catholic priest child rape victims commit suicide (Ballarat)

Most children that were raped in the Catholic church are suicidal at some point in their life.  In Ballarat, Australia, at least 55 victims of Catholic priest child rape there have committed suicide.  Like everywhere else, the Catholic church knew about it, hid the pedophiles, and ignored the victims.

In the Ballarat official Catholic church child sex abuse report, the second line of page 1 talks about 45 suicides.

An additional ten are documented under the heading “Second, suicides and premature deaths continue” in this ABC Australia News article.

Highlights:

Catholics refuse to punish the pedophiles, or find the victims, which is in brutal defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.

Catholics.  Just.  Don’t.  Care.

80% of Catholic youth leaving church by age 23, says Catholic site

From a study by well known Catholic author and well known Catholic site, Taylor Marshall says , “80% of Catholics are no longer Catholic by the time they turn 23“, along with other statistics.  Page numbers refer to a book called “The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic”:

  • Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing (p. 24).
  • 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics, about 30 million people (p. 25).
  • Nearly 80 percent of cradle Catholics are no longer Catholic by the age of 23 (p. 33)
And that’s before every young person sees “Spotlight”, the Oscar winning movie that shows the truth about the Catholic church hiding 278 known pedophile priests just in Boston, and using all of its power to hide them and to bully the victims.  In the future, every single Catholic teen will see “Spotlight”, and realize “God’s church” could never have been so deliberately, intentionally heartless and evil, brutally defying Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.
Catholic pedophilia is now getting exposed in even worse ways elsewhere.  In tiny Altoona, PA, the Catholic church was investigated, and was hiding 115,042 documents about at least 50 known pedophile priests there.  That number 115,042 is not a typo.

Want to see a truer barometer? How full was your church last Sunday, and what about other Catholic churches that you’ve in the country (assuming you’ve gone on days other than Christmas Easter, et cetera)?

How many 23-30 year olds did you see there?

Boston’s largest church, the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, is rarely more than 10% full, even for the busiest mass on Sunday.

Speculation about the future of the Catholic church in the US
Some alarming facts about the Catholic church and it’s future:
  • there are currently 69.5 million Catholics in the US
    • however, this number is people who identify as Catholic, and doesn’t represent the number who actually show up at church on Sunday, which is much less
  • there are already about 30 million adults in America who are are ex-Catholics, (from above).
  • if US life expectancy is 78.7 years old, then by the time the current 23 year olds die in 55 years, the number of Catholics will be down to less than 20% of the current number, leaving about 14 million Catholics in the US
    • in 55 years after the number will be 20% of 14 million, or 2.8 million, which means that in 110 years, Catholics will represent less than 1% of the population of the US, if the population remains at 319 million
  • however, the number will decelerate faster than that
    • most teenagers in the future will see “Spotlight”, which illustrates the Catholic church’s treatment of the victims of its rampant child rape.  This will show most teenagers that the Catholic church is too cold, heartless, dishonest, and brutally evil to ever be considered “God’s church”
    • the movie, and other true stories that the Catholic church has been hiding about it’s rampant child rape will become more available in the future accelerating the decline of the Catholic church
    • the Catholics who leave at age 23 will not raise their children in the Catholic church, so their children and grandchildren will not be Catholic
  • people are more likely to leave more quickly if others are leaving, which is starting to happen now.  It is difficult to defend an organized child rape crime syndicate, and call it “God’s church”, if you aren’t surrounded by others agreeing with you

This is all speculation, but the Catholic church will probably be significantly smaller in 50-100 years, and may be effectively extinct.

Current count of Catholic pedophile priests found in Boston: 278

In the movie “Spotlight”, journalists from the Boston Globe knew that there was one pedophile priest that the Catholic church had been hiding.

As they investigated, the number jumped to 4, then 13, then 70.  By the end of the film, it was 249, but the number has gone up since then.

278 known Catholic pedophile priests, 18.5% of the 1500 Boston priests

The current number of known Catholic pedophile priests in Boston over the last 50 years is 278, larger than any other institution in any city in American history, by far

and that only includes the ones that the Catholic church admitted.  There are definitely more that we don’t know about because:

  • the victims never came forward
  • Catholic priests have obviously never voluntarily told the truth about it

You find out the actual number when you die.

 

 

 

 

“Spotlight”: HOW investigators discovered Catholic pedophile priests

This article contains spoilers about the movie “Spotlight”.

In the movie “Spotlight”, journalists from the Boston Globe struggle to get the truth out of the Catholic church, which is proving to be almost impossible.  They realize that if a priest was accused of child rape, and he was moved frequently, or was “classified” in one of a few specific categories, they are much more likely to be known pedophile priests moved by the Catholic church.

Reassignment frequency

The Spotlight team is told that most priests are reassigned every 7-8 years.  However, known pedophile priests were reassigned in 3 years or less.

Assignment classifications

The Spotlight team also found that known pedophile priests were given the following “designations” or “classifications”:

  • unassigned
  • absent on leave
  • sick leave
  • emergency response
  • lent/leased to a parish
  • put into “treatment centers”, which are actually pedophile treatment centers

Boosts count from 13 suspected pedophile priests to 70 known pedophile priests

At one point in the movie, they suspect that there are 13 pedo priests in Boston.  When they look for priests with these suspicious reassignment record, or assignment “categories”, they find 87 priests, which is near the 6% that Richard Sipe (on the phone in the movie) predicted in 2001 based on his statistics at the time.  Out of the 87 priests, 70 are confirmed by Jim Sullivan, the lawyer for the church, at the end of the movie.

Therefore, based on that sample, if a priest

  • has been reassigned in less than 3 years
  • was ever given any of the classifications above, or was ever in a treatment center

there is an 80.4% chance (70/87) that they are a known pedophile priest.

However, those aren’t the only pedophile priests:

and that only includes the ones that the Catholic church admitted.  There are definitely more that we don’t know about because:

  • the victims never came forward
  • Catholic priests have obviously never voluntarily told the truth about it

You find out the actual number when you die.

 

 

 

 

Catholics fight homosexuality, but Jesus never said anything about it

Jesus never said anything about homosexuality.  Not one.  Ever.  It wasn’t on His priority list.

However, Catholics (and most other Christians) fight it because it requires no sacrifice, and because they love telling other people what to do.  It makes them feel like they are superior.

What is the biblical basis for fighting homosexuality?  Most of it comes from the book of Leviticus, which documented the laws of the Levites at the time.  In Leviticus 20:13, it says

  • “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable”.   Some translations say “abominable” instead of “detestable”.
However, Leviticus uses the EXACT same word is used by Leviticus to describe eating shrimp and lobster in Leviticus 11:10.
  • Leviticus 11:6-8 says you can’t touch a dead pig’s carcass, so football is out of the question.
  • Leviticus 19:27 says do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards
  • Leviticus 19:26 says you can’t eat meat that has not been drained of its blood, so order it at least medium well
  • Leviticus 25:44 states that you may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are from neighboring nations, so having Mexican slaves is cool, but only for US residents
 If Catholics fighting the gays, they should also fight to boycott
  • Red Lobster
  • NFL Football
  • Gillette razors
  • Morton’s Steak House if they allow heathens  to order meat medium

If you don’t want to do it yourselves, have your Mexican slaves do it for you.

Other bizarre Leviticus quotes:

  • Leviticus 20:9 “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.”
    • so you should kill a child who swears at you?
  • Leviticus 26:30 “And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.”

Clearly, these were laws at the time, some of which were bizarre, but some of which might have been based on their limited knowledge of science and sociology.

At that time, it might have made sense for homosexuality to be against the law, since they might have been worried about the survival of the species.  Now, with our over populated earth, we should not longer care, and should focus on things Jesus did talk about, like curing hunger, which Catholics could do for 10 cents per Catholic per day.
