There have been a number of stories like this one the last few days, about the Catholic hierarchy beating up on the Girl Scouts. I know, it seems like something from Monty Python, but it is all too real, and it comes in succession to stories about the Vatican sticking it to nuns who want nothing but some measure of fairness for the people that Christ told them to care about; and on the heels also of you-know-what, which Bishops did everything they could to hide from the world.
Now, I'm getting damned sick of talking about this evil institution, but I do have a question to ask: Not believing in these sorts of things myself, I'd like someone who does believe in Satan, demons, posession and all the rest of it, how they can possibly believe that the Catholic Church hierarchy has not literally become posessed by Satan. What else could explain this endless succession of the most bestial behavior from the Church?
Oh, of course, there's the explanation that their whole religious rigamarole was never anything but a pile of malicious nonsense, and they were never anything more than a highly organized bunch of crooks out to do any damned thing they pleased.
Can anyone enlighten me?
