Why I cannot possibly believe in Good without God

Atheist Who Blamed Faith for Sexual Abuse Forced to Resign for Sexual Messages » First Thoughts | A First Things Blog:

Of course, I could say the same sometimes about *good with God* when it comes to the outdated sacradotal idea of clericalism.

Catholics believe that they can be forgiven by confessing their sins to a priest. They might feel good thinking they are forgiven by a mythical god. But if they need to be forgiven by anyone, it is by those they harm. This misguided belief causes pedophile priests to think they can get away with raping boys. That, plus the Church protects them and moves them instead of reporting them to the police. I really don't care what that professor did, he is still right about what he said.

Yep, you don't care about pedophiles unless they are Catholic priests, we've had that discussion.

I don't care about the professor sending text messages. He can still be right about what he is saying. Everyone should hate pedophile priests. They should be reported, not protected. They should all serve time in prison.

Theodore Seeber said...

But not, apparently, pedophile professors?

Bill S said...

But he is not a pedophile. So your response makes no sense. He texted a grad student. It has nothing to do with pedophilia.

She's younger than him, isn't she?

Bill S said...

That doesn't make him a pedophile. Trust me. The pedophile priests are criminals. The professor is just a creep. Big difference.

Theodore Seeber said...

Have you read the John Jay report? Most of the so-called pedophile priests attacked teenagers. Really isn't pedophilia in the classical sense, but it is in the "statutory rape" sense.

Makes me wonder if we're heading towards May-December romances being utterly politically incorrect.
