An Atheist Blogger Joined The Catholic Church – Maybe I Should Also….Posted by Phil Ferguson on July 10th, 2012 – 5 Comments – Posted in Uncategorized
A few weeks ago an atheist blogger starting having doubts about her lack of faith. She wondered where morality comes from. After a long talk with a friend she came to this conclusion.
I believed that the Moral Law wasn’t just a Platonic truth, abstract and distant. It turns out I actually believed it was some kind of Person, as well as Truth. And there was one religion that seemed like the most promising way to reach back to that living Truth.
She decided that the way to the TRUTH and God’s Moral Law was Catholicism.
As she was thinking about these things, I was visiting the Vatican.
Could this just be a coincidence? I have been wondering lately if I was missing something. I always allow for the possibility that I am wrong.
The Vatican was amazing and it moved me …. and then this other atheist becomes a catholic. I decided to think real hard and I have now decided maybe I am missing something. Maybe the one true church that Peter built is the right one. Maybe they do have the answers to the tough moral questions.
Maybe I also should join? I did some quick research and found out where god’s moral law can take us.
In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI explained that condoms aggravates the problem of Aids. The result is that ten’s of thousand or maybe hundred’s of thousands of people will die.
Around the world a countless number of innocent children have been raped by the people that claim to hold the magic ticket to heaven. When some parents start asking questions the church jumps into action. They move the pedophile to a new town and a new batch of kids. Their self appointed pitchman Bill Donohue explains that it is the kids that temp the priests to touch them in the rectory. Lives are ruined but, the objective of the church is to cover it up at all costs. They don’t fire the priests they don’t help the victims. In the Philadelphia archdioceses alone 90 priests, “…have been credibly accused of sexual assault or abuse…”.
It is a problem that the church cannot seem to stop but when a priest is caught with an adult consenting woman he is fired right away. This appears to be a violation of god’s moral law. The only conclusion a thinking adult can reach is that they are OK with their buddies raping children.
Earlier this year they again applied god’s moral law to American nuns. It appears that they were promoting, “radical feminist themes”. What did they do? They dared to disagree with some bishops and asked questions.
“…we have just been raising questions and interpreting politics.”
You cannot question their authority or they will throw you into their very own jail. In May the pope’s personal butler was locked up in the Vatican jail. Why? He is believed to have leaked documents that show rampant corruption within the Vatican. No trial (just like the old days).
In Illinois the church announced that they would rather put 2,000 children on the street than follow the law. Thankfully, another group stepped up to help the kids and now 2,000 children are free from the influence of the catholic church.
It also appears the the Vatican bank has been laundering money. One of the men now under investigation wrote in a memo…”I’ve seen things in the Vatican that scare me.” This is not a church it is the mob.
And now these “wise” men and promoters of god’s moral law want to impose their will on the women of America. Almost all catholic women use contraceptives despite the warnings from the pope. Now the church is using the US courts to sue for control. They want to make in almost impossible for any employee to get birth control – Catholic or not.
After a brief review of the morals of the catholic church I must conclude that they are morally bankrupt. Anyone that helps them or sends them money is part of the problem. There is only one way to wash away the evil from just reading about the catholic church. I have now pulling out my check book and sending $1,000 to the Secular Student Alliance. I invite you to wash away the sin and do the same.
