    Religious extremists rally in Dublin

    Why do we allow these extremists to openly organise in our society?

    They think:

    Only fertile people should be allowed to have sex. "every act of intercourse should be open in principle to the gift of life"

    That contraception took dignity from women because "takes away from women one of the principle motives or freedoms for saying no to unwanted sex.”

    Contraception has led to euthanasia.

    And gay marriage - because 'young people' think sex without pregnancy is ok, so therefore... gays.

    IVF treatment is 'murderous' due to “the fact that men have to masturbate to get the sperm, which couples say is a very unpleasant experience"

    They openly aim to spead their bizarre ideas in schools with the aim of radicalising our children: "a place in schools for an appropriate presentation of the church’s teachings on human sexuality."


    Principles of contraceptive ban ‘ignored for too long’, says bishop (via @IrishTimes) https://www.irishtimes.com/news/soci...shop-1.3586958

    We need to root these people out of our society. Can we start by deporting their leaders to the Vatican?

    Religion should be lightly ridiculed at every opportunity and forcibly so if these
    lunatics get in your face.

    And, at a minimum, these nutters should not be running our schools and hospitals.

    That is Incitement to Hatred


    If you said that about Gays, Muslims, 7th Day Adventists or Jews


    - this thread would be pulled


    If you said it in Public then you would be liable to Prosecution.


    When you Hate another group of people that much


    - its not them your actually hating


    - its yourself ….

    I actually think it is a good thing that these people are so panicked by changes in our society that they come out and say what they really think. Or in their case what they've been taught to think.

    Much better to have this stuff out in the open because the vast majority of people would find it all rather astounding.

    They are unlikely to convert many people to their astounding take on social issues and many people would be inclined to conclude that they are fairly bonkers. Certainly most young people these days would.

    There are benefits to having an open society where all views can be heard, both in terms of a society checking its assumptions and in highlighting where extreme views exist.

    "Self hate" - is that the opposite of masterbation? If so, these people wil be delighted.

    They are best ignored, they've long lost the battle to keep the ban on contraception and they were routed in the recent abortion referendum.

    Bishop Kevin Doran is a great barrel of laughs.

    Not for much longer hopefully. The Catholic Church is a busted flush these days with Mass Attendance in serious decline even in Rural areas where my father lives.
