    Yes, that awful organization that gave us the university system, hospitals, and tremendous works of charity. This world would be so much better without those things.

Maybe Benedict has decided he doesn't want to go down with a sinking ship.
    Funny how there was no crisis with young people until the Mass was changed to appeal to that demographic rather than staying consistent with its celebration as it had for more than a thousand years.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The same could be said of Islam. Maybe it's a case of both trying to mitigate the manmade disasters that ensued when they "took over" ?....................

    Then half of them are making the right choice.

    Best post of the thread.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    All of which started as religious organizations and only got worthwhile when they were taken away from religion and allowed to progress in a secular society. Otherwise, universities would just be places to copy the Bible by hand.
