and here's to you, Bishop Robinson

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 28, 2010

The irrepressible Bishop Geoffrey Robinson suggests a Church council to change teachings on sexuality, explaining that this is the only way to resolve the sex-abuse crisis.

Hang on there. The priests who molested children were violating Church teachings. If we change the teachings (leaving aside the delicate matter of how one goes about changing God's laws). how do we know they won't violate the new rules as well?

Ah, Bishop Robinson explains that priests who molested children didn't know they were violating their vows

Hmm. 

If you really are so morally obtuse that you don't sense something wrong about raping boys, not even another ecumenical council is likely to get through.

    And here's to you, Bishop Robinson, Jesus loves you more than you will know. (Wo wo wo). God bless you please, Bishop Robinson, Heaven holds a place for those who pray (Hey hey hey, hey hey hey). We'd like to know A little bit about you For our files. We'd like to help you learn To help yourself. Look around you. All you see are sympathetic eyes. Stroll around the grounds Until you feel at home. Too funny....Thanks Diogenes. I haven't been back to 1968 in 42 years.
