This is exactly the sort of “DOGMA TRUMPS DUTY” bullshit that make my stomach churn.
When a religion values adherence to dogma more than charity, when belief is more important than doing the right thing, that religion and those beliefs are anti-human. And as such that religion and its beliefs must be characterized in some degree as bigoted, cruel, unjust and – dare I say it? – sinful.
When these douche bag members of the holy hierarchy are old and feeble and suffering, perhaps then their dogma will be a comfort and a blessing – taken in rich delicious doses right along the barbituates and opiates that ease their physical pain.
Fuck the catholic church and its dogma.Sanctimonious bastards.
