Catholics And Porn…Again. Does It Ever End?

From the New York Times, October 14, 2011

“KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Roman Catholic bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Robert Finn, and the diocese he leads have been indicted by a county grand jury on a charge of failure to report suspected child abuse in the case of a priest who had been accused of taking lewd photographs of young girls.

The indictment is the first ever of a Catholic bishop in the 25 years since the scandal over sexual abuse by priests first became public in the United States.”  My emphasis

More proof that the Catholic hierarchy just doesn’t get it.  They think and act like they are above all secular laws

Republicans Sell Out Again

Well it seems the Republicans have sold out…again.  Now there are two different lords the Party must bow to…The Christian Right and the Environmental Destroyers who are paying off our Congressmen/women and Senators to loosen or get rid of environmental laws.  Yeah guys, we don’t need a future…today is all that matters.

“The virus that has undermined the GOP and is weakening U.S. democracy is corruption. Our Supreme Court has made the United States the only democratic nation where bribery is constitutionally protected, where corporations have the privileges of citizens but none of the obligations, and where money is equated with speech. Dirty Energy has bought the party of Lincoln and now calls the shots.”  CARL POPE, chairman of the Sierra Club. Read More:

Torture is Prohibited by Law Throughout the United States

In 1998 the United States reported to the United Nations that the following is our pledge to the UN Convention Against Torture.

Torture is prohibited by law throughout the United States. It is categorically denounced as a matter of policy and as a tool of state authority. Every act constituting torture under the Convention constitutes a criminal offense under the law of the United States. No official of the government, federal, state or local, civilian or military, is authorized to commit or to instruct anyone else to commit torture. Nor may any official condone or tolerate torture in any form. No exceptional circumstances may be invoked as a justification of torture.” I added the bold to some text

“Except when WE want to”– George Bush…I just made that up, but it probably adequately describes what really happened. I heard that at least 10 other treaties were tossed aside for the Bush/Cheney war on civilization.

The United States has a very long history of making accords, pacts, treaties, deals, and solemn promises and almost universally and immediately breaking said accords, pacts, deals, treaties, etc.  Talk to the native Americans, I don’t think ANY of the treaties we made with them were honored and we continued to steal what is theirs right up to today.  We look good on paper, but don’t count on any promises we make as a country. Do as we say…don’t do as we do.
