Commentary By Ron Beasley
This satirical peace at the Hufington Post has created outrage.
Now as an atheist I think all religion is mythological nonsense. But the Catholic Church has a long history of evil so calling out the nonsense like this amuses me.
Unlike Christians, Santorum and his fellow Roman Catholics participate in a barbaric ritual dating back two millennia, a "mass" in which a black-robed cleric casts a spell over some bread and wine, transfiguring it into the actual living flesh and blood of their Christ. Followers then line up to eat the Jesus meat and drink his holy blood in a cannibalistic reverie not often seen outside Cinemax.
Roman Catholics like Santorum take their orders from "the Pope," a high priest who, they believe, chats with God. Santorum has made no secret of his plans to implement his leader's dicta on allowed uses of vaginas and anuses, but has said little about what additional dogma he will be compelled to obey. Will child killers and terrorists go unexecuted on the Pope's say-so? Will we be able to conduct our wars as we see fit, or only the "just" ones? If Santorum is a good Catholic, and he appears to be among the very best, our real president will be Benedict XVI (a "former" Nazi, by the way).
The Roman Catholic Church is a spiritual scam - it has been from the begining. It was never a spiritual organization but a political one. It was always designed to be the state religion of the Roman Empire. It fulfilled that mission until the Protestant Reformation able to demand loyalty from Kings in Europe. Bishops were political appointments.
The Catholic Church has historically been an undemocratic criminal organization. That became obvious to all with the the cover up of child molestation of the priesthood. Make no mistake this is nothing new, it's been going on for 2000 years. Don't forget the church castrated young boys for the choir.
Rick Santorum lost the Catholic vote because his Opus Dei Catholisism is not supported by a majority of Catholics. The 16th century was 500 years ago.
