The Catholic church, especially the pope, are also mass murderers. Just look at what their lawyers are arguing in court!
I was born and raised Catholic and my faith is very important to me. Unlike some people however, I am able to separate my faith in God with the politics of the Church.
The history of the Catholic church is not one of kindness and benevolence. It is one of violence and judgment. The fact that Vatican city is the city of Gold doesn't really jibe much with their mission. People confuse the Catholic Church with Christian faith all too often. There are many other Christian religions which are more closely aligned with the teachings of the bible.
Well once again you are wrong. I don't get involved in the politics of the church. When you come to the board blaming the church for some mistake, then you need to be explained the policies of the church.
The church does not operate on patients and does not even require the doctors to be catholic. Even in the 50's, some doctors chose the mother over the baby and the church stood strong that the baby is to be saved over the mother.
The Church is not all about business. When they had complete control over their hospitals, many were treated and never charged. The cost of a grammar school education up thru the 70's was around $100.00 per year and many were not even charged. Even now people often get married and buried from the church without being charged.
I have no issue with you bad mouthing or hating the church, but be consistent and put in your will that when you pass away, you wish to get buried from a hall and not a church. I get a kick out the"former" catholics who want to get married and buried from the church and have their kids baptized..
1) Just in case there was a doubt in anyone's mind how little Catholic Church values women.
2) What Catholic School did you go to? The cost of grammer school at a Catholic school was more like $1000-1500 in the 70's.
To add- I don't know a single person who gets married or buried in the Catholic Church without a hefty fee. My cousin, a lifelong member of a Catholic parish, could not even have his child baptized at their church. Why? because that child was the product of in vitro fertilization.
It would be easier for you to name the school which cost this much. I can tell you that the catholic high school which I attended was $325.00 per year when I started and $550.00 when I graduated in the mid 70's. Many Catholic High's such as St Columkille in Brighton and Newton Catholic were under $500.00 per year as of 1977.
The grammar school of which I graduated in the early 70's was in the $100.00 range per year and less for families with multiple kids attending.
Education was still cheap up to the early 80's. Boston State was roughly $600.00 per year in 1976. I graduated from NU in 1981 and paid $2,400.00 for that year or in that ball park for the fact checkers.
