Catholic Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds

Well, here's an excerpt from an article at Daily Kos that will make you throw up in the communion plate:

"Turns out, when a man sues a Catholic hospital for malpractice because his wife and the twins she was carrying inside her died when she turned up in the emergency room and her doctor never bothered to answer a page—well, things get a little tricky. Yes, the Catholic hospital adheres to the strict Ethical and Religious Directives of the Catholic Church, as set forth by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. And yes, those directives include the claim that "[t]he Church's defense of life encompasses the unborn" and a mandate to uphold "the sanctity of life 'from the moment of conception until death.'" But come on. That obviously does not apply when Catholic Health Initiatives, the Church-affiliated organization that runs the Church-affiliated St. Thomas More Hospital where a young woman and her two unborn fetuses died, is the lead defendant in a lawsuit:

Instead, they are arguing state law protects doctors from liability concerning unborn fetuses on grounds that those fetuses are not persons with legal rights

Is there ever a point where these people feel the slightest shame about their hypocritical, disgusting lies?  If there is a person on earth that still believes that the Catholic Church has a shred of connection to any sort of morality, this should be the end of that delusion.   The Catholic Church is a gigantic, money making conspiracy- a sort of holy protection racket- and nothing more.

The fact that we are all forced to subsidize their criminal enterprise through their tax breaks is an outrage.  Isn't it time they were treated like the Mafia, or the Crips and Bloods, or other organizations they resemble far more than they resemble a religion?  I'd far rather spend my tax money putting Catholic Priests in prison than in helping to pay their legal judgments when they are caught at their depraved criminality.  And as for their utter bullshit about life beginning at conception, well, I guess we won't be paying much attention to that any time soon.

You have to stand in awe, do you not?... at the ruthlessness.

An organisation utterly dedicated to protecting and extending itself above all other considerations of justice, truth or simple decency.

Any organization that denies equal rights to half the human race, doesn't deserve respect, obedience, and certainly not tax breaks. My heart goes out to the poor woman who died, and to her husband and kids.
