Archbishop John Niendstedt, Satan, sex, and crappy holy water

Why anyone would give a damn what a Roman Catholic cleric thinks about "objective truth," sin, morality or ethics is beyond me.  While I know some Roman Catholics who are very nice people because they do not let their religion define how they are going to behave and treat others, the fact is the Roman Church has a history of abusing sanity, common sense, rational thought, morality, while at the same time promoting insanity, irrational nonsense, immorality and pedophilia.

The Roman Catholic Church has no moral credibility and wouldn't know "objective truth" if hit in the altar by a truthful object!  Remember Galileo?

It matters little that the current pope, Francis be his name, seems a nice, kind person who thinks that Catholics everywhere should help the poor and needy.  The institution remains rotten to the core.  The faithful are assaulted every day in various way - via sermons about sin and about sex - engaging in sex, denying sex, or prohibiting sex.  The Roman church has a sex complex and is schizophrenic when it comes to dealing with sexual attitudes, actions, and mores.  Nowhere is that more evident in the prohibition on married priests even as they praise the "family," or by the fact that while the Vatican claims homosexuality is wrong, perverted and sinful, 25 to 50 percent of Roman Catholic clergy are gay!  And only God knows how many pedophiles are still active in parishes around the world!

This diatribe was instigated by my reading that the Catholic Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis, John C. Niendstedt, believes satan invented homosexuality and birth control.

Satan?  There's a bad deity named satan who is more powerful than the Roman Catholic god?  How interesting is that?  Satan must be having a field day working the Catholic church these days what with all those gay priests, the pedophiles, and the 90% of Catholics who use contraceptive devices in direct disobedience of the "holy" fathers.  The Roman Catholic god can do nothing about all this evil? 

The Huffington Post reports that Niendstedt, speaking at a conference of the conservative Napa Institute, said this;

“Today, many evil forces have set their sights on the dissolution of marriage and the debasing of family life.  Sodomy, abortion, contraception, pornography, the redefinition of marriage, and the denial of objective truth are just some of the forces threatening the stability of our civilization. The source of these machinations is none other than the Father of Lies. Satan knows all too well the value that the family contributes to the fabric of a good solid society, as well as the future of God’s work on earth.”

This is so stupid and so nonsensical and so ridiculous that it is difficult to believe anyone would take this cleric seriously.  If what he said is true, Satan must be laughing uproariously while the poor, impotent, incompetent Roman Catholic god is tearing his hair out in deified frustration.

Satan, indeed!

The poor archbishop must have been drinking too much crappy holy water!  (See previous post).
