It makes me wish that the catholic hell was a real place...

Comment #485948 by secondsoprano - whilst I take your point that it may be seen as a 'cheap shot', it is however, a wonderful opportunity to burst the bubble of authority that they like to drape themselves in. It's fairly difficult to maintain authority over someone who is laughing at you. They choose to dress themselves in ludicrous costumes - whether they look like dresses, star trek delgation uniforms or disney character costumes, the net result is that they look rediculous. They deserve to be laughed at for how they seek to give themselves extra authority by dressing in a way that nobody else would choose. If what they choose to wear just so happens to look like a dress, then unfortunately it IS a fairly obvious comparison to make.

The catholics in particular also seem to be terrified of femininity. It does seem somehow ironic that they would choose to wear what reminds us of traditionally female clothing.

Was watching this video today (see below) and commenting to my better half that once you decide that these nutters look hysterically funny in their rediculous costumes, it's almost impossible to take anything they do or say seriously. You just laugh out loud and their pomposity melts away. That goes for all of them, not just the catholics.

This lot (see below) for instance, look like they are auditioning for extra's in a bad Star Trek, inter-planetary convention scene lol

Surely these priests cannot possibly believe what they preach from the pulpit. If you TRULY believed that hell existed and was a place where you roast for eternity, how could you possibly rape a defenseless child? How could you even contemplate behaviour like that?

One of the drawbacks of the Internet is the anonimity it affords people - providing them a lack of accountability and the opportunity to say and do things that they would never have the courage to say and do in the real world. Reading the disgusting comments levelled at Richard, I am reminded of Philip Zimbardo's book 'The Lucifer Effect'. If you want to know what anonimity and lack of accountability can produce in human behaviour, read this book...

Richard, I support you 100% (as I'm sure many of us on this site do).
