Catholic church showing true colors again
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-5758...pregnancy/

Quote:Steven Goodin, the attorney for the archdiocese and the schools, said Dias was fired for violating her contract. The church considers artificial insemination immoral and a violation of church doctrine, and the contract required her to comply with the philosophies and teachings of the Catholic church, Goodin said.

It's just mind boggling how the Catholic church can fire a woman over artificial insemination because it violates church doctrine and yet try to protect pedophile priests! What are they saying, pedophilia doesn't violate church doctrine? Dodgy

Quote:According CBS affiliate WKRC, Dias was awarded $20,000 in compensatory damages, $50,000 in back pay and $100,000 in punitive fines.
LOL, I hope more people come forward. If morals don't motivate the church to change, maybe losing money will.

Of course it's not. They do work for the biggest man in town and must keep their needs away from women. Life of celibacy, and all that crap.

Excellent.

RE: Catholic church showing true colors again
It's hysterical I find, most Catholics, when I would explain, the church as a whole is completely against artificail insemination would argue and say, "no they're not, they're against birth control."

The only thing I can say...at least they're consistent. They don't believe in birth control, death penalty, or any type of artifical insemination or abortion...

I do believe they are ridiculous but consistently ridiculous, which is more than I can say about those other jebus followers who cry over an abortion and cheer when someone is executed.

They are against any interfering with what they consider a "natural process"

It's funny, but not, I was talking years ago, to a priest...we were discussing the catholic stance on certain things.

He said there was one gray area. Life support. But not withholding...whether it should be started to begin with.

He said, "pulling the plug" was always completely wrong in all cases. Whether it should be done to begin with, since it interferes with the natural process was debatable.'

Even as a former Catholic I had never heard that one about pulling the plug. All I can say is "astonishing!" I did hear about not interfering with the "natural process" though. That's used to justify everything from banning birth control to condemning homosexuals. (Of course, homosexuality is a natural process, but they don't recognize that. Rolleyes ) It always struck me funny that these die-hard do everything naturally folks use utensils, wear clothing, take medicine, read books, browse the internet, ... how dare they prolong their lives by improving their physical and emotional well-being by unnatural means! Gawd will be angry! Laugh out load

Damn, so those catholics should not be visiting doctors or hospitals anymore. That's one way of reducing healthcare costs.

I don't get how many are against contraceptives and IVF but are for boner pills. Fellow told me its to fix whats gone wrong, which boggles in comparison to his stance on ivf.

This is what comes of a few hundred ridiculously dressed virgins pretending to be the servants of the infallible almighty creator.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

-Karl Marx
