← Attempted rescue of pro-life poster child is deeply misguided

Logicel's Avatar Jump to comment 19 by Logicel

Catholics' emphasis on the sacredness of life allows mere humans to control other humans. Life is touted as sacred because it is eternal as long as you grovel to the human reps of this so-called divinity. If you jump through the hoops dictated by the vicious circle of Catholicism, you will do terrible, inhumane actions like 'rescuing' this terminally ill baby so you can live forever. Catholicism is all about the individual Catholic and their inability to accept their mortality and their mind boggling selfishness and lack of empathy for anybody except themselves (well, they don't have a self, they gave it to their dogma).
