    One which days will you refrain from defending the massive evils the Catholic Church has committed?

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

      about one million to one.

      Your exaggeration says more about you than about reality.

        You are claiming a good/evil ratio of 1000000:1, and I don't think that kind of number leaves a lot of room for discussion.

        I know quite a few Catholics, and as a whole I find them to be fundamentally decent people. I would probably say the same about most other groups of people that I can think of. However, I find the role played by the Catholic Church in U.S. and international politics to be troubling in a number of ways. I don't think I'm engaging in Catholic bashing, but to someone who thinks that the balance of good to evil is about one million to one I probably am.
