One more example of abuse of children in religious institutions. Last week yet another a revelation of Catholics castrating boys – Accuse a priest of molesting you and lose your stones. Now that is a code of silence.
The question is why it’s so easy for these ugly things to go on behind the mask of faith. The person of belief can ask themselves this question. WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR ME TO LEAVE A CHURCH? If there is an answer, then we are not dealing with fanatics. Some independent history may indicate the line was crossed a long time ago.
You don’t have to be religious to be either charitable or cruel. But when organizations hide behind diversions it’s time to take a closer look.
Religious or otherwise, a con man can’t chump you unless you trust him. Where you put your trust is a responsibility. Remember Bernie Madoff – he had a really nice office and pictures of himself with really important people and…and…and… People just turn their heads away from the criticism and believed what they wanted.
