Priestly Pedophilia Debunks Religion Myth

- randau

The recent expose of Priestly pedophiles debunks yet another of religion's myths. That myth being that religion discourages bad people from doing evil things. As the argument goes, if it weren't for religion there would be no morality and everyone would be pillaging and raping like wild animals (which does a disservice to wild animals). But, religion and the fear of God reins in the badness in people and compels them not to do bad things.

Well, one would think Priests and Bishops ought to be about as religious and have about as much of a fear of God as anyone can be expected to have. Yet, it hasn't seemed to dissuade a lot of them from doing their dastardly evil deeds.

The Bishops and Cardinals who took place in the cover-ups and reassignments may even be more of an example of no matter how deeply immersed in religion and renowned one may be, it doesn't necessarily restrain them from grossly immoral behavior. They cold bloodily put concern for themselves and the church's authority above the welfare of children and young people that were being defiled and they didn't even have their own pedophilia sexual demons on which to blame it.
