…if it were moist yellow cake with rich chocolate fudge frosting

Though my wife has heard me make many a snarky comment about the Catholic Church, my disdain is not directed toward all individual Catholics. My problem is with a bureaucracy that has– well, never mind that for now. First, I’ll just drop a few names of Catholics who I admire:

Anyway, the problem I have with the Catholic Church– and most organized, orthodox religion– is best exemplified in the following stories (the gist of which I pinched from Bartcop):

St. Pat Monsignor Hits Gays on Scandal/ Blames Woes on ‘Disorder’, U.S. immorality

St. Patrick’s Cathedral rector resigns

(Speaking of delicious irony, the first story was found at FreeRepublic, which was undoubtedly posting the story as a sycophantic hurrah for the good Monsignor’s knee-jerk bigotry.)

It’s all about the money, and look where it’s got them.
