Everything that's wrong with religion...

Rape row sparks excommunications

And who, you may ask, is being threatened with excommubication? The stepfather who had been sexually abusing a nine-year-old girl since she was six?

Of course not.

A Brazilian archbishop says all those who helped a child rape victim secure an abortion are to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

What I find objectionable is the Catholic Church and the sooner their malign influence is removed, the better.

I hope this does lead some Catholics to realise just how inhumane and foolish their religion is, and I think it will. The Brazillian president has said that, on this issue, the church is in the wrong and the medical establishment are right. This is going to be reported so people will hear more criticisms of the church.

Obviously, religious beliefs don't stand up to criticism, so this can only (i hope) lead to the church losing influence and being increasingly ignored as the inhumane and ridiculous organisation it is.

If only that were true. Unfortunately, it is more likely to create a lot of fear and nightmares.

Well, it's not like being excommunicated is such a bad thing. Maybe that will make some Catholics realize just what sort of religion they belong to.

Well, duh. Removing clusters of cells that likely would have been miscarried anyway (if not killed the mother and died in the process) is a far graver sin than child rape. They have to believe that, or they'd be forced to take action against all of those pedophile priests--and that would be very expensive indeed for the Church.
