The Catholic Church Shows Its True Colors Yet Again (This Time Without Molestation!)

There are, as they say, two sides to every story. In this case, we are presented with a man who likes the truth, even when it just isn’t comfortable. The other side of the story is a worldwide religious organization who claim an integrity that I personally do not think they deserve. The man, Sanal Edamaruku, is presently in hiding because he showed that a “miracle” at the Church of Our Lady of Velankanni was no miracle. Rather than embracing the truth, the Catholic Church has decided instead to attempt to silence it by having him charged.

There’s information on the New Humanist Magazine’s blog as well as an interesting post on Rationalist International if you want to know further details. I would ask that you consider signing a petition that has been created in Sanal’s support.

Would someone please explain to me:

a) how the Catholic Church can continue to claim to be a force for goodness in the world when it actively subverts the truth and lies to its followers?

b) how anyone can look to the Catholic Church for enlightenment knowing what we do about them?

c) if this behavior is what their supposed Jesus would do?

About biguglyjim

Like a caterpillar that spins a coccoon and emerges as a walrus with a mohawk, Big Ugly Jim has become something unexpected. Raised a fine young Christian boy in the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Jim began to question his teachings, first evaluating the wisdom of other religious and eventually realizing that none of them seemed any more accurate than any other, and not a one of them made a lick of sense. Today, Big Ugly Jim is a musician, a Business Analyst with Large Oil Company Whose Name Is Not Important, a music promoter with the Calgary Beer Core, a writer of fiction and non-fiction, a prick, an atheist, a father, an ex-husband, a role model, a horrifying vision in a red speedo (or at least he would be, if ever that happened which IT WOULD NOT), an announcer, and soon to be an officiator of weddings. Also, he's nice and does dishes. Jim continues to live in Calgary, spreading his filthy doctrine of free, critical thinking and appreciation for music. And ladies, he's single! Hard to imagine, I know, but this loud-mouthed old timer who never grew up's turn-ons include people who can think for themselves, people who aren't afraid of a good giggle or a good pint, and people who know how to give back rubs. His turn-offs include people being shitty to each other, fundamentalism, and zebras. Fucking zebras... Who the hell do they think they are, really?
