Wow, they’re really on a roll lately! Last week they excommunicated the family members and doctors who helped a 9-year old rape victim get an abortion. That’s not a typo by the way; I didn’t forget a number before the 9.
“God’s laws,” said the archbishop, dictate that abortion is a sin and that transgressors are no longer welcome in the Roman Catholic Church. “They took the life of an innocent,” Sobrinho told TIME in a telephone interview. “Abortion is much more serious than killing an adult. An adult may or may not be an innocent, but an unborn child is most definitely innocent. Taking that life cannot be ignored.”
Keep in mind that the girl was pregnant with twins which, doctors said, would literally rip her apart if she carried them to term. But hey, her actual life is not as important as a clump of non-sentient tissue. And the sooner Catholic women learn their role in the church is to be unquestioning fetus incubators, the better!
No word on what’s happened to the child-molesting rapist asshole, the girl’s step-father. I’m assuming he’ll be welcomed into the cloudy, loving arms of his mystical sky daddy as soon as he spits out a few prayers. After all, what he did was nowhere near as bad as doctors and (non-raping) family members who preserved the health (or as much as they could) of a nine-year-old girl!
She probably shouldn’t have been wearing that short skirt anyway.
And in case that episode wasn’t enough to drive home the fact that women in the Catholic Church are worthless for everything except spitting out babies and domestic drudgery, this week the church announced that they consider the washing machine to be the most important invention for “women’s liberation”. Presumably because it liberated their time to cook better pot roasts and have more missionary postion, strictly procreative sex.
