It just isn’t going to end as the almost daily revelations continue-this unfettered beast that is the Catholic Church has wreaked absolute havoc in every corner of the globe where it has set foot-from slavery, torture, executions, war, the theft of children, rampant sexual abuse, collusion with the Nazi’s and their involvement in assisting escapes to South America, you name it-nothing so hideous they wouldn’t partake of it.
Always with some bloated pampered “spokesman'” said to be wearing the shoes of the fisherman, or maybe it’s Dorothy’s red slippers, sitting upon the throne in absolute opulence, and cradle to the grave believers making excuses, apologies, and inane defenses.
It is inexplicable to me that after centuries of well know abuses any among our own would count themselves among the faithful. As illustrative an example of acculturation as has ever been seen.
There should be no place for this “church” on the rez or in any of our lives, and they should be told to leave-centuries later and they are still attempting to co opt the nations. What peace or salvation is to be found built upon the bones and blood of our own? By what metric will any of us measure the value of a thing?
If on the other hand all that is required is some bogus Vatican apology how is that the same standard isn’t applied to “official” governmental ones?
Can it be that words, an apology, can never atone for a rabidly brutal past? So while some will defend and accept the words that emanate from the belly of the beast that is Rome how is it they won’t, and with just cause, entertain a governmental apology? What a convoluted and unreasoned approach.
Does saying sorry, my bad, make amends for a single child murdered, tortured, or sexually abused at the boarding schools or one of their “churches”?
Does saying that was then this is now when then and now are interchangeable make a difference? If a little money is thrown around does that make it alright?
If Creator has a place for you in the afterlife no person, no entity usurps that-no one has the authority, the power, to excommunicate another, much less an evil empire covered in the blood of the innocents and wallowing in it’s riches.
A culture cannot survive without it’s language and traditions-to accept the language of the Missal and the traditions of this merchant of greed and abuse contributes nothing to the survival of the nations, it only facilitates the demise-and that has always been the goal.
This so called church has nothing to offer but hypocrisy and a crafted fear mongering that creates purgatories, the threat of excommunication, and a belief that one must sit in a box “confessing” to seek absolution.
The Creator is accessible-no brokered deal requiring a middle man is necessary-and he sure as hell isn’t asking any for their money or to bow and kiss a ring-we don’t bow to any man, neither do we kiss rings or asses.
