Confessions of an Ex-Priest

A friend of mine gave me a box full of "The Sudbury Star"  WEEKEND MAGAZINE from 1970 to 1979.  I came across this article.  I'll just give some of the juicier aspects of it, since it's several pages long. 

 

Resignations from the priesthood have become epidemic. Paul.... (I won't give his last name)..., a former Basilian Father, today is married and a father of three. " The Church is not a spiritual institution" he told Stephen  ..........., "it's a multinational corporation."…

Atheist Prayer

Borrowed this from some talented blogger on Redditt:

 

_My Prayers_

Our BRAIN, which is in our head, you're awesome!

May you be filled with knowledge.

May you acknowledge reality as well as creativity.

Give us our daily control over our body,

And forgive us as we rage upon creationists.

As we forgive those who dare not think.

Subject us not to a deity,

But deliver us from stupidity.

For you are our only…

Religion must be RIDICULED!

When rational, scientific arguments are scoffed at, "ridicule" is the only weapon left with which atheists can use against unintelligible, anti-intellectual, bigoted propositions of the religious right. Discuss!

A comment made on, MADMIKE'SAMERICA.com

I'd never heard it put this way before!  But, I think this would really stir up some shit if you told a Xian the following: 

Your religion is like your genitals.  Keep both to yourself and the world won't ridicule you for flaunting what might be laughable.  I sure don't want either one waved around in my face or shoved down my throat.

Us, Baby Eating Atheists ?

Taken from Exodus  12:29.    "And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. "

Looking for good advice in the bible is like looking for edible food in a dumpster.  You'll rummage through plenty of rotting garbage before finding anything half palatable.  Garbage, like god slaughtering babies!      …

Michael Moore VS Vatican & paedophilia

Michael Moore has done a few interesting documentaries such as "Bowling for Colombine" " Fahrenheit 911" and others.  Do you not think it's time he took on religion and the Catholic church?

What do Rational People have Against Religion?

That's a tough one! NOT! 

It could be the shameless hypocrisy, the arrogant self-righteousness, the willful ignorance, or the cynical indoctrination and poisoning of young minds with prejudice and hate. It's difficult to say, exactly. We'd say, all of the above! 

We do know that, given half a chance, religion would control every aspect of our lives whether we want it to or not. It would impose an absurd morality on us, telling us what…
