I'm beginning to think the church 𝘪𝘯𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘥 hypocrisy.
The kids were conceived by IVF, and the church is very upset about that. It wouldn't stop the priests from diddling those kids though.
One would think that catholic priests would be delighted to have more victims - sorry, sheep - to choose from. I mean, is too much choice really a thing when it comes to pedophilia?
If children were being systematically abused at Denny's the way they have been abused for decades by the catholic church, Americans would burn down every single Denny's.
I thought going to church was supposed to help folks become forgiven for their sins, not reserved only for folks who were perfect reflections of the dogma. But I guess the Catholic Church thinks it can afford to be selective in who gets to attend.
This was an opportunity to bring her into the fold and forgive her of her sin of having children. But, as usual, the church chooses the heartless option.
This complaint about IVF sounds like the mommy war and alpha male crap about folks who have c-sections aren’t really mothers and the children are impure or whatever. It shouldn’t matter how the child came into the world, the child is here and just as human as every other person. But then folks like this have a narrow definition of who gets to be people.
It's the Catholic church....what can you say? A good example of its silliness is how it can change doctrines on a dime. When I was a boy, eating meat on Fridays (fish only) was a mortal sin that would consign you to hell. Then one day the church decided to scrap that, so it went from a mortal sin to, at most, a venal sin. This Pope is slowly pulling back from, e.g., its stance on LGBT folks. It's all made up; where is it found in their Bible that in vitrio fertilization is wrong?
I'd expect the Catholic Church to be overjoyed at yet another woman who's cranking out more than 1 kid, so we can ruin the planet's ecosystem even faster.
I would really like to see someone who holds this view of “fertilized eggs = babies” respond to this thought experiment:
There is a hospital fire. You have to make a choice of rescuing either 100,000 fertilized eggs or a single newborn. Which do you save?
I remember going to church with a friend’s family (had to see what the hubbub was all about) and I was somewhat mesmerized by the incense waving. My friend’s mom reminded me for the umpteenth time I wasn’t to go up to take communion. As if. Kinda killed the mood. Also weird being like one of five people sitting alone when everyone went up to have a snack and beverage.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
(in tiny print) certain restrictions apply
when the RCC and FL have an abortion...
we say this all the time at this and other blogs, but nice Catholics need to wake up. form your own religion. New Catholics or something, but be yourselves. keep your faith if it's important, but remember: this can happen to you, for your "sins." which are whenever some dood in a funny hat and dress decides they are Extra Bad, and needs an example to distract from his own real ones, or to raise a few bucks for his little gang.
It shouldn't be the Catholic Church, it should be the Church of Submission.
The idea that only special persons can communicate with an all encompassing, all knowing, all powerful, all loving being and then relate that communication to the rank and file tells you everything you need to know about this church, and any organization for that matter: https://youtu.be/WUV6wMZ-8Vs?si=4etqTiwS1WA6KQ6U
IFV, same sex marriage, prophylactics, homosexuality, wokeness equals blasphemy!
Discrimination, the patriarchy, white Christian nationalism equals religious freedom!
What’s wrong with this picture???...:)
"All (white cis-het conservative married couples who never had a doctor help with fertility) are welcome"
There. I fixed it.
This whole thing makes me sick. I had triplet IVF kids (2 girls, 1 boy) in my class many years ago. The doctor implanted the 3 embryos, hoping at least one of them would "take," and all 3 did! Their parents gave them permission to tell their story during my sex ed course. It made me cry. :)
Fuck the Catholic Church and every other religion/organization that interferes with such a personal decision.
The thing I find hypocritical here is the Church says it is Pro-life, yet condemn the woman and the science that allowed her to give life to 3 beautiful children. That science also gives those who want children a chance to have them. This who Pro-Life thing is a sham.
"I was shocked that I could be kicked out of somewhere for deciding I wanted to fight to have children and utilize resources around me.”
I was shocked that the leopards ate MY face.
