Prayer to Stop the Child-Fuckin'

Yeah, this'll work. Continuous prayer to stop paedophiles...seriously - is there a way that the Pope and the Catholic Church could do less about the problem? I don't think so. Oh, and this is nice:
Officials said that the prayers were in addition to support for legal action against paedophile priests by their victims and a code adopted two years ago by the Vatican to try to ensure that men “with deep-seated homosexual tendencies” do not enter seminaries to train for the priesthood.
Um, not to burst that discriminatory bubble that the dudes in Rome seem to live in, but homosexuals aren't paedophiles - people who fuck little kids are. That's sort of an important distinction to keep clear in your pointly little vacant heads, churchies.

Prayer...fuck. That's like having a mountain lion attack you and you trying to stop the impending mauling and death by singing Video Killed the Radio Star. This is quite possibly the most ineffective idea of all time. Ranks right up there with meditation to lower a city's crime rate. Assheads.

Ha ha...Perhaps we could get 100 people to sit outside each ped-preists house and sing "Video Killed The Radio Star" at the top of their voices, I'm sure that would have an effect :)

What a load of crap. Yet another example of the extreme cognitive dissonance shown by Catholics.

Of course prayer doesn't work but if they thought they could do anything about this why wouldn't they pray to stop paedophiles everywhere?

From the article: "Pope Benedict XVI has instructed Roman Catholics to pray “in perpetuity” to cleanse the Church of paedophile clergy." How about cleanse the world of paedophiles?

Selfish bastards.

Exactly - if you're going to be delusional freakpots, at least be well-meaning delusional freakpots and think of people other than yourselves.

But Mike, prayer allows us to feel good about ourselves by thinking that we are actually doing something positive to help when in fact we are doing absolutely nothing at all. Your not going to take that away from us, are you???

I bet the Vatican is spending millions of dollars a year preventing birth-control, and then PRAYING that AIDS doesn´t kill lots and lots of people.

I´d do it the other way around (if I was da pointy-hat), but then again I´m evil and immoral. Shit!

Dear Michael,
Were you abused as a child?

I, MICKY, AM THE HOLY ONE OF GOD

Ah Micky, my semi-lurking troll-whore! Are you doing the rounds, cutting and pasting your insane rantings again? It's so cute. Thanks for showing up.

Dearest Mike,
I will mention your name when I attend ROSARY, tomorrow.

I love you, Michael! Do you love me?

I, MICKY, AM THE LORDS LIGHT & SALVATION FOR OTHER PEOPLE

Do what you need to do, Micky. I can't say I love you without at least dinner and a movie, plus we're just so far away - it'd never work. I'm not a long-distance fella...I need that...physical connection. You know, nights on the couch watching tele. That sort of thing.

Micky's infected my blog too. I think he searches for "atheist" "skeptic" or "godless" so he can post his bullshit.
But you know a better way to stop child molesting at the hands of priests? If the priests were actually held accountable in a court of law for their actions, instead of being shuttled off to a different parish. And if those priests stopped molesting children.
A great book on this topic: The Church That Forgot Christ by Jimmy Breslin, about a lifelong Catholic who woke up and left in response to the church's conduct.
