i think catholics are delusional. the pope just admitted pics of nude 14 year olds weren’t considered child porn by the church and that vatican policy was to hide sexual abuse information from authorities. i believe catholics will ignore this and remain loyal. thus they’re delusional.

Catholicism is dying in the US at an unprecedented rate. They are having to sell and combine churches left and right. Awhile back, someone posted an article about my hometown, Pittsburgh, that the Catholic church had to sell 75 properties there. And there is a decent catholic population in Pittsburgh.

Of course they’re delusional; they believe (according to official doctrinal dogma): 1. Parthenogenesis occurred in a human female, and… 2. … the offspring resulting from parthenogenesis was male (parthenogenesis does not occur in apes, including humans, and if it did occur in humans (a diploid species) the offspring would necessarily be female) 3. Bread (crackers) magically “transubstantiate” into human flesh (which is then consumed in a ritual) and… 4. Grape juice or wine is magically “transubstantiated” into human blood (which is then consumed in a ritual) 5. a person was 100% human and 100% divine (there’s not 200% in anything) 6. 1+1+1=1 (trinitarian mathemagics)

Worth noting the age of consent in Italy is 14. Although you’d think an institution that claimed to be the absolute authority on all things moral would set a higher standard. And yes, they and their entire following are delusional.

Of course they’ll ignore it: they’ve ignored the 92839823983823 instances of child rape and their cover ups, etc. At this point I don’t know **what** it would take for them to leave the church since sexual crimes against children is the worst thing I can honestly imagine. ___ Edit: guys… I don’t mean that number literally.
