Wee Flea,

I had a thought, something to do with pots and kettles, but it escapes me now. More to come if I can remember the reference.

Go to: Insurance for Sex Abuse: A policy tailor-made for the Catholic church

krogercomplete's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by krogercomplete

Question -- why are they able to settle out of court in the first place? Isn't rape a criminal offense, persecuted by the state/DA? They should not have been able to get away with this no more than a killer could "settle out of court" with the victim's family.

The optimal scenario would be a lengthy imprisonment AND a hefty fine (pay out by insurance if you must), as ordered by the court. This would show no one is above the law. Anything less reeks of injustice.

The state can bring criminal charges against the individual priests if there is probable cause to do so, but the above article is dealing with civil suits against the catholic church based on the misconduct of its employees. These suits are all about getting money to the victims and have nothing to do with imprisonment or fines collected by the state.

Go to: Sean Hannity with Christopher Hitchens

"You also have the infinite regress and a whole bunch of other conceptual problems to deal with. You practice self-deception and wishful thinking better than anyone I have encountered. That's not a compliment."

Your belief that God does not exist or that consciousness does not continue after death may be your own self-deception and wishful thinking.

You're a dummy head!

No, YOU'RE a dummy head!!!

Go to: Hitler Was an Atheist Who Killed Millions in the Name of Atheism, Secularism?

anticipated response: "Hitler certainly was not a Christian because he betrayed the teachings of Christ; just look at all the bad stuff he did."

I think Iraq is one topic that Hitch should steer well clear of if he wants to be taken seriously, given his unwavering support for the war. I find it ridiculous the way he shrugs off the whole disaster with "well it would have worked if it wasn't for those pesky religious nutjobs!".

Certainly we can evaluate all of Hitchens' claims about Iraq independently without impeaching his credibility on the entire subject area. Your caricature of his position notwithstanding, what role do you feel the pesky religious nutjobs are playing in Iraq?
