Well, I signed the petition to get that little girl justice as soon as my stomach had settled due to the disgust of whole situation.
What I don't get and a Catholic man who I contacted in the past agrees with me, is how can someone in a state of grace or cleansed with the blood of the Lord or whatever do something so foul and filthy and be supported by anyone.
I was challenged as a free-thinking woman of the left by a right-wing Christian group on-line to condemn Lena Dunham, Prof Dawkins' support of his old pervert teacher, the vile group known as Virtuous Paedophiles, and I did without equivocation and hesitation. Why can't they do the same when one of their heroes performs such a vile action? Why can't they say, as I said, wrong is wrong, assaulting children is wrong, it doesn't matter who the person is, their politics, their beliefs, anything.
It makes me poorly.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)
