← ‘Rendering unto God that which is Caesar’s’: the fatal flaw at the heart of the Vatican

Paula, very interesting article. You point out something I had never considered - that there is a moral dimension to the RCC's position on raping children. Only it's the morality of a self-serving organization, designed to advance the interests and secure the power of that organization. When believers pose the question of how atheists can be moral "without God", I had always assumed that the morality they're referring to is one that benefits humanity, rather than a religious patriarchy.
