The Costumed Medieval Chief Molester still thinks praying does something. Unbelievable.

I'm the last person who's going to defend the actual message of the Catholic Church. I pretty much agree with you that it's outlived its usefulness. Here's the problem though: It's not a political message. It's a religious one, and a Catholic one, at that. Excuse the tautology, but Catholics aren't Protestants. They don't change their doctrine because times change. God or Jesus or whoever said what they said, and they're sticking to the interpretation that they gave it 2,000 years ago, because that's the interpretation they gave it, and God didn't lie to them. That's their rationale.

I believe there is a chance they will evolve and modify, like Popes have over time. True those items were not the main ingredients to my problems, and I don't think the chances are great they will change ... I'm just saying over time they may be forced to chill out some of the more archaic and obviously ridiculous items. But who knows, maybe not at all and they will just become more and more like a charming old cult.

All this "Lord will watch over them" and "pray for them" BS is what's disturbing. Fewer and fewer people buy that superstitious dark ages crap and are sick of it being involved in excuses and solutions. We want the freaks weeded out and arrested, removed from children, you medieval, iron-age philosophy, hat-wearing freak.
