NO; that is an excuse people use to justify their apostasy and all you need to do to realize that is to put before your reason the fact that the New Testament Church has been in the world for nearly two thousand years and has covered a huge amount of space so someone saying that they are rejecting Her because of what happened in a tiny area of space and time must be either lying or retarded, than you look at the reality that the whole Industrial School system was the spawn of 19 th century whig Protestantism and the fact that a lot of this abuse is came out of the brutalization of society by the Great Hunger/Irish Holocaust which was in essence an Orange attempt to destroy both Catholicism and the Irish language on this Isle.
Than ask yourself how many people have been led to reject Representative Parliamentary Democracy in the UK due to the industrial scale of child abuse in England and Wales uncovered in recent years and you will clearly see that the point you are making though oft repeated is absurd.
The Republican party in the US is run by Evangelical Christians. The Catholic TV station EWTN is run from Alabama. The Irish Pro life movement gets a lot of funding from the US etc etc etc.
I'm going to take a wild guess that sexual, physical and psychological abuse of children on an industrial scale, and the subsequent cover-ups by Church authorities probably had something to do with it...
that's more a proof that satan exists, well that and heathrow terminal 1
There is no god, there is no satan.
Take the road from Borris in Ossory going either direction you choose or catch a plane to anywhere else from terminal one.
You make the decisions, you 'will' your existence either way. Take some responsibility for your life and don't waste it believing that the magical Easter bunny will beat the worms to your lifeless corpse if you choose to let the Easter Bunny save you from either Borris or Heathrow!!!! It ain't gonna happen!
