In a letter to the editor to our local newspaper a christian fanatic was decrying NH's governor's signing into law homosexual marriage. In the course of his BuyBull banging tirade he dismissed the history of priestly child molestations by saying this:
" ... a closer look at the facts will show that between 80 and 90 percent of the abuse of adolescents was committed by homosexual pedophile predators masquerading as priests, and not heterosexual men wearing the Roman collar."
I'll spare you my rather cutting letter in reply.
We've all heard the "not true Christian" ("no true scotsman fallacy) escape route proffered by many self appointed Christians in charge of determining who is and isn't a TRUE Christian. But this is the first time I've witnessed one of them declaring that ordained priests, many of whom have been doing the Lard's work for decades... weren't TRUE Priests, They were just masquerading
Interestingly he omits the minor detail that the Catholic church has been covering it up, hiding these "not true priests" for years and years, moving them from one parish to another... suborning their perversion. Also very telling is the fact he didn't disclaim those Bishops, Cardinals, and the Church itself as "Not True Christians or Christian Churches" for their complicity.
I don't know if its blinders, lack of honesty, utter stupdity, or simple hypocrisy that causes such denial. But I have seen such things often enough to come to the conclusion it's endemic to devout theists as a necessary defense of their faith.
What do you think prompts such delusional bullshit from them?
