Let me state for the record that I am not anti-God. I do not believe in a devil. I don’t care what religion people practice as long as they don’t practice it on me. That said, I have a Catholic friend who is currently on the outs with the Catholic Church. Now for some back-story.
This woman was married in accordance with the church to a practicing Catholic husband…who fooled around then decided he wanted a divorce. OK, they got a divorce. Now, he is still an Usher in the church while she is considered “the whore” by said church.
She bore him five squalling girl-babies, all of whom look just like the father, and she is the fallen woman? Why? Because she got the divorce? Puh-leeeaze! Folks, I think every religion needs to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century where the man is held responsible for his actions and the woman isn’t expected to just lay back and take it.
Now for the kicker. The unfaithful man is welcome in the church, the faithful, but divorced woman is an outcast, and the church still tries to solicit tithes from her. I believe this comes under the heading of MONUMENTAL GALL! But what can one expect of a church that hides the indiscretions of their pedophiliac members?
And people wonder why I don’t subscribe to any religion. Good thing I don’t believe in Hell, I guess.
Yup, this was a Wolf Rant.
