Nice to see them taking on the real issues, roaring 'bingdum ningdum yazza kazzaz' into the faces of people suffering with schizophrenia.
Keeps them away from kids I suppose.
Yeah, they really need to work on that. -and not just dealing with it responsibly when it happens, but changing the whole deal. As long as they have the whole abstinence culture thing, the priesthood is going to be a magnet for people hiding from their own sexuality= Pedophiles, gays who've been raised to be ashamed of themselves, and every other sex thing people wish would go away. It's like a sign on the door "Do you wish your sexuality didn't exist? Come on in! Bottle it up and pray it doesn't explode and hurt someone." It's a perfect storm because even the harmless ones mostly don't have a healthy attitude towards sex, and can't help their peers.
All the exorcisms and child abuse aside, how can anyone take seriously any organisation that hoards unfathomable riches and preaches charity? I had no hope for the Pope at all really. He was probably installed because there was a chance the last guy would be busted for aiding and abetting. The new pope says he's frugal and so on but, seriously, come off it. Just because he opts not to sleep in a bad the size of my flat. Decent members of the clergy are usually left high and dry by the institution they represent because they challenge the establishment, a bit like that nuisance Christ did in the stories they read.
Piety seems to just be a load of public relations signifiers these days. Words powerfully spoken with a a certain facial expression and with no real need to follow through in any significant way. It's not just the Roman Catholic Church. Take Bono's use of his charity efforts to tie in the promotion of products he's been hired to flog - meeting President Bush to discuss poverty and AIDS in Africa and giving him an Ipod - at the time that U2's new album comes ready loaded on the thing upon purchase. Bono probably saw it as hitting two birds with one stone. I thought it was tasteless. I can't take any of that bullshit seriously. At least they weren't roaring Latin at mentally ill people I suppose. The newspapers were full of 'what's on W's playlist' articles as a result, with the issues being discussed pretty much ignored. The media can fuck off too now that I'm ranting.
I wish everyone would just turn their backs on these rich and famous philanthropists. After all, when things improve in the world it is usually down to uncelebrated individuals and groups and usually the efforts of the very people the issues directly effect. Sometimes these efforts aren't considered palatable by us, the molly coddled classes, who feel our leaders and celebrities are saintly just because they want to loosen the economic garrote ever so slightly, maybe, in a way, sort of.
...jesus, I've come over all craters. I'll leave it there.
