I Didn't Know That

For some time now I've watched as the leftist media (ABC, SMH, Age, SBS) pursued a strident campaign of vilification against the Roman Catholic Church, starting about mid term through the disastrous Gillard term.  All focused on allegations of child abuse going back decades.  No mention  of the good things which the church has brought to mankind  - schools, hospitals, hospices, orphanages to name just a few.

Then I came across this snippet and the penny dropped.

The federal Coalition’s cabinet is the most powerful collection of Catholics ever assembled in Australia, with almost half its 19 minister being members of that faith, nearly double the proportion of Catholics in the general population. 

The left always has an agenda within its many agendas and raw hatred of Tony Abbott these days is top of the list.

With half the cabinet committed and practicing Catholics. I wonder how long it will be before we hear snide claims of child abuse from the news abusers of the left?

Abbott being a Catholic is but a minor blight on the church in comparison to the covering up of serial sex abuse for decades. Shame on the media for reporting that, without saying that they also operated schools and orphanages! Oh wait...

Operating schools and orphanages doesn't justify sexual abuse of kids Adolf. Especially when a lot of them were abused in the same schools and orphanages turning the places from a sanctuary for the kids to a prison of horrors.

And all this abuse occurred by folk who supposedly were shining beacons of faith and hope to the heathen multitudes....

I like the scripture that says it is better that a mill stone be hung around their necks and be drowned in the sea than to offend against little children....Jesus didn't mince his words and we shouldn't either.


Also your id verification sucks - nominister would get a lot more comments if you made the words easier to read.

They the ones "who specialise in massaging two hundred year old hearsay and gossip into incontrovertible evidential fact?"
