Catholic Bishop Knows What Is Best For Children
A Roman Catholic bishop will be forced to explain himself to MPs over fears that he is imposing religious "fundamentalism" on children. [Which is not a euphemism for anything else]
Patrick O'Donaghue, the Bishop of Lancaster, will be questioned over his ban on what he calls "values-free" sex education in Catholic schools in his diocese and his order to put up crucifixes in every classroom. Like in the United States images of torture is fine but sexuality is wrong.
He is to appear before the House of Commons select committee on children, schools and families follows a 666-page document he produced last year which angered some MPs because of its strict line on sexual morality.
In the document, called Fit for Mission?, Bishop O'Donaghue wrote: "The secular view on sex outside marriage, artificial contraception, sexually transmitted disease, including HIV and Aids, and abortion, may not be presented as neutral information as medical science has no place in such issues."
He said "so-called" safe sex was based on the "deluded theory that the condom can provide adequate protection against Aids, he was wearing two of them when he got aids so explain that one ".
And he added: "Schools and colleges must not sppport charities or groups that promote or fund anti-life policies, such as Red Nose Day , Save The Children Fund and Amnesty International, which now advocates abortion."
Although sex education is mandatory in all secondary schools, Bishop O'Donaghue insisted that in every lesson even science classes it must be taught solely in the context of "the sacrament of marriage which would then be totally neutral ".
The bishop who knows all about sex because he attended a 3 day course called, "Taking All Fun Out Of Life And Imposing Our Will On The Masses" said: "sex looks yucky, you should stick with what you know, boys do rule in so many lovely ways and girls definitely drool."
Bishop O'Donaghue added: "But they (the evil MPs) see me as a fundamentalist and that is a pejorative word these days with connotations of terrorism, violence and irrationality.
I will say I reject these connotations, these people should be hung, drawn and quartered then burned at the stake like in the good old days."
Bishop Arthur Roach was unavailable for comment as he was at his, 'Sacred heart retreat for orphaned and vulnerable boys' in Leeds.
Bishop O'Donaghue's ideas coincide with the Vatican's fresh look at sin. Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, the head of the Apostolic Penitentiary when asked about the many sex scandals within the church in numerous countries said: that while he accepted the "objective gravity" of the allegations, he contended that the heavy coverage by mass media of the scandals must also be denounced because it "discredits the Church."
We here at OBB News does not want to discredit the Catholic Church in any way no matter how many children are molested by priests or how many of those priests are protected by the church.
When it was suggested that the Vatican didn't care about the problems faced by women when it came to abortion the Monsignor stated that:
Catholic organizations help unwed mothers, educating "their children who come into the worth because of their lack of foresight" and facilitating adoption.
Jesus our personal saviour took time off from appearing on a grill cheese sandwich to say: "Oy vey, who put these idiots in charge of children ? Don't covet your neighbour's ass do something about it and love thy neighbour also go forth a multiple it isn't rocket science.
Take responsibility and stop blaming the media also blaming unwed women isn't cool, what about rape? so if a woman has a child out of wedlock she is damned and if she uses birth control she is damned. St Peter totally lost the plot dude. "
