Comment 2 by Richard Dawkins :

This is obscurantism personified: wilful, pernicious, active desire to obscure and cloud meaning. I now wonder whether, perhaps, that is what Catholic theology is all about...

No need to wonder Richard, you are absolutely right. The whole purpose of theology (of any flavour) is to camouflage banality and truism with fancy patterns. At heart it is just some version of the Golden Rule but the clergy make it shinier and more complicated just to make sheep feel they are getting their money's worth and so willing to leave power in the hands of those that covet it most.

This article? tish and fipsy of the highest order.
