The universe is bigger than your superstitions.

  1. I tell you, why christians and their Bishops and Cardinals including their pope are reall stupids? Because they all stand for unlimited reproduction of menkind.
    in 1900 total population was less than 2 billions.
    1950 2,556,000,053
    1960 3,039,451,023
    1970 3,706,618,163
    1980 4,453,831,714
    1990 5,278,639,789
    2000 6,082,966,429
    2010 6,848,932,929
    2020 7,584,821,144 estim.
    2030 8,246,619,341 estim.
    2040 8,850,045,889 estim.
    2050 9,346,399,468 estim.
    See, what christian’s unlimited reproduction is leading the world to.

    This is, because their fairytale-book beibel, says: “Be fruitul and multiplply” – and because condoms and abortions are strictly forbidden.
    For the better them stupids in the churches should better propagate any marriage cause gay and lesbians could not make babies.
    *And what those stupid christian bigotts should finally stop:? Producing gay and lesbian babies. 🙂 🙂 *

    And finally: They should stop their parents, their Priests and Bishops and Cardinals finally from abusing innocent kids.

    • I agree. The thing is they constantly need to replace their ranks, they need more people to be members so they get more money. So they tell their congregations to breed, that feeds the churches demand for more and more money. Hugs

      • Essiep, mind if I jump in to the conversation. Yes in some areas as the population becomes less religious they tend to have smaller families. Highly religious communities tend to follow church doctrines on birth control and they tend to have larger families. That is not to say that only the religious people are adding to the population. But yes I think the message the church sends , especially to poor communities, is harmful. Hugs

    • Reproduction is something we’ve been doing since homosapiens first arrived. If you want to blame anything ( and I don’t like blame games ) blame medical science for keeping us all alive much much longer.

      • Again wee disagree. As I said before the more religious people are the more they have larger families. Have you not heard of the quiverful movement? Have you not heard that most churches are against the use of birth control? Yes we all keep having children and we are living longer ( some places ) but the issue is do religious people tend to have more children, and the answer is yes. And I think the reason is each religion wants / needs more members. One way to get them is to have them born into the organization, and indoctrinated from birth. Hugs

        • We are good friends Scottie and our disagreements are minor. You have a strange idea of indoctrination , most soon reach an age where they question what they are taught especially now education is almost worshipped in the west. Religion is on the decline and fundamentalism is fighting for its life . Islam is battling to remain relevant as civilisation infiltrates . The young have much more difficult problems to overcome in terms of internet and mobile phone addiction.

          • “Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man.”

            ― Aristotle, The Philosophy of Aristotle
            I disagree with you as education in my country is getting weaker and weaker, and more religion is forcing its way in. I can show you Matt Powell a young 22 year old college student who is often on YouTube. He was raised by fundamentalist parents, home school, and even when presented with facts refuses to believe because the BIBLE is the final and true word from god. He refuses to even try to understand the sciences he says are wrong and fake because everything is based on his bible. We are in my country seeing more and more like him. More and more homes school kids taught only church doctrine, more and more kids who go to religious school including higher education facilities that are run by religions for the purpose of maintaining a religious indoctrination.

            In the state of New York there is a large population of Hasidim Jews. I have posted on this before. This is indoctrination. Read this. https://scottiestoybox.com/2018/04/06/taxpayer-funding-for-religious-schools-that-teach-only-religion/ Hugs

  4. Catholics are voting with their feet in their disgust at the monumental cover up but we must be careful that in our desire to bash religion we don’t forget that pedophilia is widespread amongst many communities. I suspect it maybe connected to human nature these traits do not appear out of thin air.
    Religion teaches that we can become much better in our behaviour and a very similar lesson is preached by suit and tie progress. Religion puts it down to external supernatural influence , society puts it down to civilisation.

    • Sorry Kersten I disagree. Yes child abuse can happen anywhere, but no other organization has had this large a problem and still had an even larger cover up that went all the way to the top. Every day now it is reported another diocese report shows a major number of violators and a huge number of victims with even more cover up. No sorry, this is something the catholic church and ALL it’s leaders must be held responsible for. I include each and every priest that knew or suspected a fellow priest was abusing children and did not report it, took a confession and did not insist that the person report them self, or simply did not physically stop the abuse themselves are as guilty as those that were raping kids themselves. Any member of the congratulation that doesn’t speak to their priest and tell them that they wont tithe nor give money unless everyone in the chain of command agrees to report it as soon as possible and speak up. This is not the days of old where the church decides who marries, who inheritances or even who gets what jobs. There are still bishops and arch bishops saying they wont follow the reporting laws. Then every member of that faith and those churches should walk out. But sadly they wont. This is a world wide catholic problem of covering up and moving the abusers.

      As to human nature. No it is not a normal human trait. It is an abnormality to abuse defenseless children. If it was normal human nature every child would be abused. No this is a case where the powerful let it be known it was OK and the abusers would be protected while if anyone tried to out the abuser they would be the ones punished. As for religion teaching how we can be better that is not true. The most religious churches are the most intolerant and help their community the least. Especially these mega churches that practice the “prosperity” gospel.

      Again let me be really clear. Child abuse in all its horrible forms can happen in any organization. But only in religion is it hidden and protected, and only the catholic church has made it a integral part of the organization to not stop it but to protect the abuser at all levels. It is almost like they have a doctrine of it is not bad for kids to be raped and used for the satisfaction of the priests. I am surprised it has not come out that kids are brought to the Vatican for the former pope to have sexual relations with. It is like it is a perk of being a priest that you get to do this to kids. No I wont excuse it in anyway. Hugs

  5. Scottie there are many traits in human nature some more prevalent than others Robert Hare estimates that there are 1% of psychopaths in the American population incidentally they don’t all commit murders. In the UK it is estimated there are about 500,000 viewing child pornography

    • Yes I understand it is the abnormality. Not the normal human trait. That was the point of the no it is not human nature statement. Second the point is the while some people are sexually drawn to minors of different ages for different reasons, it is the fact that most people do not work for an organization that has publicly and privately said it is OK, we will protect you if found out, and we will hide you if they try to punish you for abusing children.

      This is what the catholic church as done for at least a century. They have as an organization supported and protected child abusers. The fact is anyone in the church who felt the desire to abuse had no reason not to as they were fully protected, while the children were not protected at all. One of the things the church put out was if a priest was abusing a child to NOT pull support from them but to keep taking care of them. So they had institutionalized guidelines to protect abusers but not the victims. That is why the catholic church is a criminal organization, and it needs to be closed. It is also why I say anyone who is catholic that doesn’t demand that all files and all information be turned over to police no matter the position held or they will not give money of any kind, then that member is just as responsible as the priest with his hands on a child.

  6. It is a massive problem and far more widespread than previously imagined. It is true that many of these seek jobs and position that give them access to children , and quite recently the noble game of football has been sullied by a few coaches that were up to no good .
    We can be likened to icebergs four fifths of our humanity is hidden .

    • No again I disagree. Kersten yes people whi desire to molest children exist. Yes some take jobs to help them get close to children so they can abuse them. However in almost every case other than religion as soon as it is discovered the abuser is not protected and the victim is. Yes the Sandusky scandal was horrible, but that is why it was a huge scandal because it was not a uniform protection by all universities. Also it was not the entire organization involved in the hiding of the abuser, but a few people in the sports program. That is the total difference. Now it is true that other religions have been charged with massive cover up of abuse and protecting the abusers, but none of them equal the scope of the catholic church. Hugs
