Catholic prelates going to hell

Sometimes we kinda wish there really was a hell.

Tana Ganeva, writing at AlterNet, tells this story:

"A 9-year old girl in Brazil was impregnated with twins after being repeatedly raped by her stepfather. Doctors decided the child's uterus was too small to safely carry a baby, let alone two, and with the mother's permission performed an abortion. The Catholic Church not only tried to stop the procedure, but announced today [March 5] that all the adults involved in terminating the pregnancy will be excommunicated from the Church -- including the doctors and the girls mother."

According to the BBC, "The Archbishop of Olinda and Recife, Jose Cardoso Sobrinho, told Brazil's TV Globo that the law of God was above any human law."

Well, that's all bullshit. The archbishop of Olinda wouldn't know God's law from a turtle. Any pissant pious prelates from any religious organization who would expect this child to carry twins to term and probably die in the process deserves to go to the hell created by the god of their perverted imaginations!

It is hard to accept such thinking. How can a child that has been raped be asked to die for some misguided rule by a priest? Is she not entitled to live?
