Catholics owe it to God to pay respect to him by attending Sunday Mass. Most people that donate money at church feel as if they are making God happy. Forgive me for pointing out that God is not the recipient of our donations. MoneyGram works wonders, however, it is not possible to send MoneyGrams to God. So, where do our church donations go once they hit the collection basket? It goes to the bishops that have aided and abetted child molesters. Do you think that makes God happy? If I thought it did, I would stop believing in God immediately.
I believe that God is sickened by what his bishops have allowed to occur on his green Earth for the last several decades – perhaps centuries. Because I believe in God, I decided this Easter Holiday that I will show my love and respect for God by ceasing and desisting in giving my money to child molesters and co-conspirators that aid and abet the offenders. In other words, I no longer donate to the church.
While I am all for respecting and praising God by going to Sunday Mass, I am totally against giving money to the present church administration.
I implore others to follow in my example. We parishioners – disciples – have the ability to attract the attention of our bishops by cutting off the gravy-train. Perhaps once we have their attention the bishops will do something substantial to solve this crisis.
I would like them to resign their positions – including the Pope Benedict – but I doubt they have that kind of moral fortitude. The Holy Father should be too ashamed to look at himself in the mirror for his deplorable role in helping the evil, sick and twisted child sexual predator known as Father Lawrence C. Murphy.
