Average Catholic reaction when they see an unraped child

https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/ed8e8ae7-2f73-429d-b8ce-2c39e7d8af76.webp

Nudding,

I think you mean catholic priest.

Fraylor,

Meh. Doubt it. The priests do the rape, congregation claps them on. May as well simply assume anyone of the catholic faith rapes children. Easier than being nice to them.

Nudding,

Just like all Muslims beat their wives and all Jews care about is money? Grow up dude, stereotyping the average Joe is gross. It’s fine to mock establishments but regular people are mostly well meaning idiots.

Fraylor,

“Just like all Muslims beat their wives and all Jews care about is money?”

Wow, Islamophobia and anti-semitism. You’re a real treat, aintcha?

Nudding,

I’m not surprised you fail to see how my examples relate to what you said.

Fraylor,

Said the anti-semite islamaphobe.

Nudding,

I’m an equal opportunity hater, including catholics. That’s why we don’t need to insult every member of each religious group, just the groups in general. Hope you learned something today about hate, and how it’s only okay if we hate everyone equally :)

Fraylor,

Well, maybe tone down your racism and maybe I’ll agree with you.

Nudding,

Maybe go fuck yourself.

Fraylor,

Aww. Baby racist mad? Want a Binky?

Nudding,

I thought you were being fecetious, but I guess you’re serious? If I’m racist for making a comparison to what you said, what does that make you? Your statement about all catholics being pedophiles is the exact same thing lmao. Are you dumb or just stupid?

Fraylor,

You’re the one trying to compare races with religion. If you want to go to bat for pedophiles while also actively spouting racist nonsense, be my guest kid.

Nudding,

That’s the stupidest fucking thing I’ve ever heard. Muslim catholicism and Judaism are religions. Yes there are some Jewish races but if you fail to understand my point due to your myopia about hur dur racism then great, this has been the least productive conversation of my life.

Fraylor,

Muslim catholicism? The fuck are you even on about? Not even worth reading the rest of the drivel.

Nudding,

Are you retarded? Obviously I just missed a comma, lmfao.

Edit: I’m retarded lmao I meant Islam.

Fraylor,

More drivel.

Zippy,

Teachers molest and rape children at a higher rate than Catholic priests. I am not sure why we seem to focus on the Catholic religion for this and ignore where it is now common. It better said, why not focus on both?

Sources?

Zippy, (edited )

cbsnews.com/…/has-media-ignored-sex-abuse-in-scho…

According to this source and a few I have seen, sexual abuse is not a little but significantly higher.

killeronthecorner,
@killeronthecorner@lemmy.world avatar

Yikes what a poorly written article. The author doesn’t understand basic rationality.

The physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests.

Yes because the number of teachers and students is magnitudes larger than the number of Catholic children and priests. There’s a lack of proportionality here.

the federal report said 422,000 California public-school students would be victims before graduation — a number that dwarfs the state’s entire Catholic-school enrollment of 143,000.

Lol that is very dumb. We aren’t comparing Catholic schools, we are comparing the rate of abuse in Catholicism as a whole compared to the school system, and even then it should be scaled to the size of the populations.

Classic example of “don’t take everything you read on face value”. Citing big numbers sounds clever but it easily hides a lack of statistical understanding.

I’m open to a source that is mathematically and statistically sound, but this ain’t it.

2ez,

I doubt the teacher’s union has the resources of the church. Nor do they have the time-tested global systematic approach to abusing children, unless common core gotcha mad.

not with my fucking tax dollars you aren't. good on this guy for fighting back

clay_pidgin,

He happens to be on the right side of this issue, but from the totally wrong direction. He’s against it because those scary Muslims might open a school too.

Make no mistake, if the Catholic Church were permitted to have a public virtual charter school, a reckoning will follow in which this State will be faced with the unprecedented quandary of processing requests to directly fund all petitioning sectarian groups…For example, this reckoning will require the State to permit extreme sects of the Muslim faith to establish a taxpayer funded public charter school teaching Sharia Law. Consequently, absent the intervention of this Court, the Board members’ shortsighted votes in violation of their oath of office and the law will pave the way for a proliferation of the direct public funding of religious schools whose tenets are diametrically opposed by most Oklahomans.

I want to give the benefit of the doubt here and assume he knows his audience, so playing it this way ensures it gets killed.

Kind of a does the end justify the means sort of situation…

clay_pidgin,

I don’t know the fella beyond this news item, so you may be right.

shadowspirit,

I wish more of us gave each other the benefit of the doubt. I refuse to believe most people are assholes… only some. Don’t let the few dominate your thoughts.

In its application, the Archdiocese said its vision is that the school “participates in the evangelizing mission of the Church and is the privileged environment in which Christian education is carried out."

I think this is the closest you'd ever get them on tape to admitting that they want to brainwash your kids into Evangelicals

roguetrick, (edited )

While Catholics consider themselves evangelical, I wouldn't lump them directly in with the greater "Evangelical" label.

That said, I highly doubt these Catholics are Jesuits out to offer a quality education considering the plan is to do an online K-12 school. Should be rejected on that alone.

Edit: Yeah, this archbishop is a Benedictine that was appointed by Ratzinger and signed off on a letter calling for an investigation into Francis. He's one of the shitty ones.

    I’d rather drink both if I had to parse the ‘good’ catholics from the ‘bad’ Catholics.

    randon31415,

    Every Republican is for fully tax-payer funded religious schools until the phrase “tax-payer supported Muslim madrasa” is uttered. Then, it is back to the weird game of religious home-schooling and particular state-approved partially religious charter schools that are only one from religion.

    Evilcoleslaw,

    Yeah it’s pretty telling that pretty much all the taxpayer funded religious stuff goes away real fast when it gets opened up to any other religion. Whether it be prayers at meetings, school clubs and programs, etc. The Satanic Temple has done a lot of that.

    FuglyDuck,
    @FuglyDuck@lemmy.world avatar

    It’s all fun and games until The Satanic Temple show up.

    then it’s a party.

    mjhelto,

    I love The Satanic Temple and totally approve of their methods. Their way of trolling the Christian rights’ insufferable need to put their dicks into everything, is what I live for! They do so much good for their communities. They’re the “troll” version of humanists.

    Well kudos to him for being a Republican standing up for the constitutional separation of church and state.

    Eldritch,

    Apparently that’s not what he’s standing up for. They’re not the right religion. When Republicans make decisions, the seeing irrational or against their normal behavior. Always assume there’s bigotry tied to it.

    kingcake,

    He seems to grasp that all religions should be prohibited from getting state funds.

    From the article:

    “Make no mistake, if the Catholic Church were permitted to have a public virtual charter school, a reckoning will follow in which this state will be faced with the unprecedented quandary of processing requests to directly fund all petitioning sectarian groups,” the lawsuit states.

    Nightwingdragon,

    Not saying you’re wrong, but the article gives absolutely no evidence that this is the case.

    Don’t get me wrong, he clearly knows that the day that school gets established, the Satanic Temple is going to come marching right on in. More importantly, so is everyone attempting to establish schools for Jewish students and Muslims as well, and God knows they won’t have any of that going on. He’s definitely trying to keep “them” out, and we all know what I mean when I say “them”. But there’s no indication he’s in favor of any one particular religion, either. At least, not publicly.

    It seems to be more on the side of “No, that means my religion as well. Not because I’d be against it, but because I can’t let them establish one without letting brown people do the same thing. You don’t want one of those schools next door to you, do you?”

    And hey, if that’s what it takes to keep religion out of schools, I’m all for it. Silver linings and all that.

    MiscreantMouse,
    MiscreantMouse avatar

    So, the authors of the article irresponsibly chose not to include this guy's very public extremist rhetoric, but here's a quote directly from the press release:

    "Today, Oklahomans are being compelled to fund Catholicism. Because of the legal precedent created by the Board’s actions, tomorrow we may be forced to fund radical Muslim teachings like Sharia law. In fact, Governor Stitt has already indicated that he would welcome a Muslim charter school funded by our tax dollars. That is a gross violation of our religious liberty. "

    Nightwingdragon,

    This doesn’t really show his preference for any other religion, though. In fact, he specifically used the word “compelled” when talking about Catholicism. Which seems to indicate he believes the way I described above: He doesn’t want any religion because he knows doing so means all those brown people can have religious schools too, and we can’t have any of that

    He probably would be OK with it if he wasn’t worried about Muslims opening up their own school. His fears are deeply entrenched in prejudice. That’s obvious. But if his paranoia over Muslims is enough to get him to keep all religion out of schools, I’ll take small victories any way I can get them.

    MiscreantMouse,
    MiscreantMouse avatar

    I mean, he's a protestant evangelical, so he's not a big fan of catholicism, but alongside his fearmongering about muslims, he definitely shows plenty of preference for his particular religion. Here's another quote from the press release:

    "I would prefer we focus on reading proficiency so they can read the Bible at home with their family. That’s where religion is best taught: in homes and in churches, with the loving guidance of parents and pastors"

    I'm certainly glad he's fighting these religious charter schools, for whatever reason, but I think it's silly to pretend his motivations are anything but bigotry and bias toward his favorite sect.

    Nightwingdragon,

    This still doesn’t show that, though.

    In fact, he specifically says the opposite: Religion is best taught at homes and churches. So what if he only wants reading proficiency so kids “can read the bible at home with their family.”? Bigotry aside, he’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing. Keeping the schools focused on education, keeping religion at home. He could be the (whatever the evangelical equivalent of the Pope is) on his own time, and the bigotry certainly has no place anywhere. But at the very least, he does at least seem to be trying to keep religion (including his own) out of schools. I’m OK with that, even if we have completely different reasons why.

    MiscreantMouse,
    MiscreantMouse avatar

    The language he uses definitely shows a preference for a specific religion. He's clearly keeping his religion out of school only because it would allow the religions he doesn't like in too, which is the entire point of the post you first responded to.

    Nightwingdragon,

    The language he uses definitely shows a preference for a specific religion.

    So? He’s not trying to jam that religion into classrooms. In fact, he’s trying to keep it out.

    He’s clearly keeping his religion out of school only because it would allow the religions he doesn’t like in too, which is the entire point of the post you first responded to.

    It’s also a point I’ve been making the entire time. Yes, he’s clearly keeping his own religion out because his hatred/fear/bigotry of other religions is that deep. But as long as the end result is him continuing to keep all religion out of schools, I’m OK with that. When he joins most of the other members of his party and tries to jam Bible study in the classroom, then we’ll talk.

    Holy moving goalposts batman!

    OP:

    Apparently that’s not what he’s standing up for. They’re not the right religion. When Republicans make decisions, [that seem] irrational or against their normal behavior. Always assume there’s bigotry tied to it.

    In your first response you wrote:

    Not saying you’re wrong, but the article gives absolutely no evidence that this is the case.

    So I provided a press release quoting the AG's anti-muslim bigotry as evidence.

    Your response:

    This doesn’t really show his preference for any other religion, though. In fact, he specifically used the word “compelled” when talking about Catholicism.

    So I provided further evidence of his religious preferences.

    Your response:

    So what if he only wants reading proficiency so kids “can read the bible at home with their family.”? Bigotry aside, he’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing.

    I indicated that the point in the post you originally responded to is pretty well supported by the evidence...

    Your response:

    So? He’s not trying to jam that religion into classrooms.

    I'm done, please keep better track of your point in the future

    Nightwingdragon,

    This is completely incorrect.

    You said: “Apparently that’s not what he’s standing up for. They’re not the right religion.”.

    I agreed; he’s clearly biased against Muslims but your statement showed no evidence that he was trying to push said “right religion” into schools either. In fact, he was going out of his way to keep even his own religion out of schools, out of fear that it would set precedent for others to establish religious schools he doesn’t like.

    Then you posted a quote where he blatantly stated his fear of a Muslim school being established, and I asked you to still provide evidence of where he’s trying to force his own religion anywhere.

    You then replied with a post where he TWICE said that any religion belongs at home as somehow proof that he’s favoring one religion over another.

    And then you said “The language he uses definitely shows a preference for a specific religion.”, seemingly failing to understand that he absolutely has a right to prefer a specific religion, so long as he keeps that religious preference out of the government and out of our schools. You have continued to show no evidence that he is attempting to force his own religious views into the issue. In fact, you’ve provided plenty of evidence contradicting your own talking point.

    There is nothing wrong with this guy having his own religious preferences. You have provided no evidence he’s trying to force his own or any other religion on anybody. Everything you yourself have shown so far points to him wanting all religion out of schools, even if those wants are itself based in bigotry. As long as he continues to support keeping all religion out of schools, I’m not really all that concerned over why.

    MiscreantMouse,
    MiscreantMouse avatar

    Lol, ok dude. I never said he was trying to force his religion into anything, you're just making stuff up. I supported the OPs statement that bigotry against the wrong religions was the motivator here, not high-minded ideals about the separation of church and state, and I think that's been substantiated by the evidence.

    dantheclamman,
    @dantheclamman@lemmy.world avatar

    Honestly, I feel more conservatives would be against religion in schools if it was pointed out more often that implies their tax dollars supporting religion in general. Why should some teacher lead prayers on our dime?
