oh for god's sake lighten up. Everyone makes sweeping generalities and stereotypes. If someone can't get the sarcasm it's their propblem.

The fact is that catholicism has been stereotyped in this way is because people are more aware of abusing priests, not only that but the lengths the catholic church goes to either hide, ignore, deny it happens. And when they do get found out they do a Michael Jackson and pay off the parents.

Family on mothers side are catholic (italian) and even they make the same jokes about the priests. so give over with the being offended and giving people grief for being non-factual. Fact is, not one person here is innocent. Maybe we need a proper study on the likelihood of a person becoming a child abuser when becoming a priest, maybe then it will stop this teddy throwing.

Apologies for bad grammar and spelling, sneakily posting at work shhhh
