  •  The no contraception, no gays, (8+ / 0-)

    no masturbation, no marrying divorced people and some other Catholic rules are silly.
    Catholics should stand up and complain to the bishops.

    Too bad the nuns don't have more say in the church.

    The conservatives have taken control and that is pushing more and more Catholics away.

    •  You are right about all of this, but (0+ / 0-)

      ...the nuns are worse. Most of them are brainwashed into the same thinking, and they take it out on everyone else by being harsh taskmasters. Ask anyone who was educated by one.

    •  LDS is very on board with the no masturbation part (3+ / 0-)

      and youth is asked regularly whether they are keeping clean from it.  Sigh.

      They refer to the penis as "the factory"!  LOL.

        Make them forget their higher self, their humanity. Make them see their bodies as machines to be fixed and kept undercheck.

        And that asking the youth reguarly if they are...

        That alone is designed to make sheep out of them. To make them be ashamed of their bodies' natural functions. They are robbing their members from self respect, self autonomy at a very young age.
