  •  you need to look a little more closely at the (4+ / 0-)

    Catholic Church and where its hiearchy is taking it. And look at the child-molestation scandal.
    I can name similar disgusting things in other religions.
    All religions (with the exception of Buddhism maybe, and it's not supposed to be a religion exactly; and also maybe Baha'i?) have pretty disgusting views of women, at their root, and treat women horribly if their rules and original writings are viewed as literal commands.
    A prominent Catholic theologian recently said this:

    The Vatican made a point of crushing any form of clerical dissent, he added. “The rules for choosing bishops are so rigid that as soon as candidates emerge who say, stand up for the pill, or for the ordination of women, they are struck off the list.” The result was a church of “yes men”, almost all of whom unquestioningly toed the line.
    Calling Pope Benedict XVI’s reign a “pontificate of missed opportunities”, in which he had foregone chances to reconcile with the Protestant, Jewish, orthodox and Muslim faiths, as well as failing to help the African fight against Aids by not allowing the use of birth control, Küng said his “gravest scandal” was the way he had “covered up” worldwide cases of sexual crimes committed by clerics during his time as the head of the Roman Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith as Cardinal Ratzinger and had then failed to apologise.
