This article 'Bishops say gays have gifts to offer church', hit me hard, with hypocrisy TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE… Now I realize that most human beings become hypocrites from time to time (some, all the time), we can’t help it, it comes with the territory… We judge others to make ourselves feel more important or better said; because of our egos, we resort to snobbery to feel a superiority towards the average befuddled person in the street. However, when entities (like religious institutions) that have millions or billions of awed followers, hanging on their every word for guidance, religiosity evolves into a ludicrous caricature of ‘Holier than Thou’ betrayal… The enormity of this deception would be flapping in the wind for all to see, if we lived in a perfect world but, in the reality we live in, most people are so afraid of existence (hey, it’s SCARY) they want, NO, they need to be bamboozled into believing that there is someone (some magical human being) out there who knows all the answers.
IMAO, I think this quite sad for an intelligent species.
Ps: Another question one might ask about the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church...Why a homophobic church is filled with closeted gay priests?
We all know the suffering this unanswered question has caused to the little children who are forced by their indoctrinated parents to obey priests as though they were gods.
