      so many catholic clergy in one place effectively is a massive stink bomb

      [moral, ethical sort of stink]

      Or plant a few explosives, lock the doors so they can’t escape, and put on a film where you laugh at them and tell them they’re all going to hell.

    “Reserved” for Clergy? So that makes it a physical reservation and not a mental reservation? Connell loved a good mental reservation so he did.

    I know hell doesn’t exist, but he believed it did and after what Connell did to protect abusers and silence victimised children, I hope it plagued his final years.

      Unfortunately, I don’t think any of these geezers are troubled by their behavior in any way.

      true but it is the top Catholic Church.if these goms had any shame or sense they would have had a low key funeral out in sandymount or somewhere.

            You like victorianweb? It’s one of my favourite history websites.

            So, I actually do know. And yes, I am small in stature and in bulk.

            I didn’t laugh because you’re wrong either btw. It’s coz you’re absolutely right.

        The Greek gods were worshipped for 1200 years, the Roman gods were worshipped for 1500 years.

        The Catholic Church is on the way out just as sure as these huge religions went out. The only difference is that the Catholic Church imploded from within. They destroyed themselves. Silly bullies.

          Yet the RCC has more adherents and more priests, to pick just two stats, than ever before in its long, long history.

          Be grand.

            Catholics grew by 57% between 1980 and 2012. From 783 million to 1.2 billion.

            Priests didn’t keep pace with people. Partially dud to Vatican2 changes. But grew where the number of Catholics is growing. Total is over 414,000 priests. A little higher than 1980.

            Try as I might, I can’t find a long term (centuries) graph of priest numbers. I’m sure there was never a time when there was more than 414K priests….almost certainly far, far less.
