Why I really, really, REALLY dislike religion.

Well, first there's this:

Several members of an advocacy group for victims of priest sexual abuse were flying to Rome Sunday to protest Cardinal Bernard Law's leading Mass in honor of the late Pope John Paul II, the organization's founder said Saturday night...

Court documents showed Law knowingly moved priests accused of abuse from parish to parish without disclosing allegations against them. He resigned in 2003 amid intense public outrage.

However, credit where credit is due, at least Law and the church have the courage to stand up, confront his accusers and address the allegations:

The Boston archdiocese has told CNN it won't comment on the issue... Last Sunday, Law appeared in an ABC interview about the pope and refused to discuss the abuse crisis.

OK, scratch that courage part. Athenae over at First Draft also has a thing or two to say on the subject. You go, girl.

And just in case you have room for a little more outrage, over here at God is for Suckers, a timely display of more logic. You'll love the comments part where "Frank" makes the case that, yes, that toddler really did deserve that terminal illness and who are you to question God's will?

And good morning to you, too.
