Catholic guilt

The Vatican has apparently told Catholics to stop supporting (the notoriously big bad and nasty) Amnesty International because AI refuses to condemn abortion.

Only a religion – i.e. a group of people daft enough to believe in the theological equivalent of fairies or Father Christmas – would think that withdrawing support for a HUMAN RIGHTS organisation is a good and reasonable way of demonstrating its interest in human (or, more accurately, foetal) rights.

It’s a shame that the ever-anti-semitic Catholic Church didn’t feel similarly compelled to “speak out” against the Nazi party in the 1930s and ‘40s, really.
Clearly its interest in human rights doesn’t stretch so far as to give a flying fuck about anyone who’s actually…well, you know, been born.
