Well, I really do have a bazillion reasons for this, but I’ll try to break it down to the major basic parts.
Let’s start with Catholic Guilt. Honestly, WHY does everything we do have to be fraught with guilt? I like a guy, I want to sleep with him, I should FEEL bad? REALLY? Oh, but if I MARRY him, it’s okay. Um…no. HELLO, Catholic Church, I’m HUMAN. I have both NEEDS and FEELINGS. Fuck you for telling me I can only enjoy those in the “sanctity” of marriage while your priests are molesting generations of children and you’re fucking covering that up. At least *I* am sleeping with adults, you fucking hypocrite assholes.
And, I just want to bust out Stephen Fry’s complaint about the Catholic Church here, because, while I liked him before, I think I freaking LOVE him now.
One of my “lay teachers” (a teacher who is not a nun) in Catholic school went to JAIL for molesting boys. So, either my Catholic grade school sucked major ass at background checks, or they didn’t care. Hmmm, judging from the trainwreck that is priests molesting boys, am I surprised?
Also, have ANY of you heard of the Magdelene Laundries? No? Check it out.
The Catholic Church has done a LOT of things in the name of what is pious and holy which were really in the name of what was vicious and cruel.
You know what, Catholic Church? I don’t care about you. I don’t believe you are what’s best for me.
If God exists, and He is a benevolent God, he would denounce you. I think I’ll live by my own moral code, thank you very much.
