Especially how they put the magazine out right before a huge celebration in the name of Mary. Whatever the case it doesn't bother or offend me but I do think it was somewhat tasteless in the way it was done and the timing of the release.
    She is NOT worshipped by Catholics. A common misconception.

    Once again, people who have little information like to make such claims. From what I have read, pedophelia among priests is LOWER than in the general population. Don't let little facts like that affect your HATRED or anything.

    I think they're more than capable of coming up with such things on their own.

    I blaspheme by challenging God. It's not my intention to insult others feelings.

    I'm old skool. I prefer directing the blasphemer to the rack or a bonfire. Nothing like the smell of roasting heathens in the morning.

    Well you wouldn't do it otherwise would you, unless you have some evangelising athiest agenda. Which many seem too like the idiot Dawkins.

    Blaspheming though tends to mean insulting not just challenging.
