Apparently, Huff Post didn't like my comment. It went from pending to nonexistent in the space of thirty seconds. I don't even see it in my own list of activities. I've made some pretty negative comments about religion before without any problems, so this was unexpected.
Jeff DeGraff wrote an article titled The New Mass as New Coke where he's whining about a change in the Roman catholic liturgy.
Here is my comment that never showed up. Do you think it was something I said?
You belong to a church that has covered up massive pedophilia and child abuse around the world. The Ryan report in Ireland estimates that 25,000 children in catholic run orphanages and institutions were subjected to an environment of neglect, emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. Can you even picture 25,000 children? I can't, and that's just one country.
The same church in the same country sentenced tens of thousands of women and girls to indentured servitude in the Magdalene laundries. In Australia, the church presided over the forced adoption of babies over a period of thirty years. Some estimates claim that 150,000 women had their babies stolen from them. Some women reported being shackled during labor, and prevented from seeing their babies after the birth.
In Canada, many indigenous people were forced to attend residential schools run by catholic and protestant denominations where they endured horrendous sexual and physical violence. There were many who didn't survive. At times, the mortality rate in these schools was higher than 60 percent.
This is your church, and these are just some examples of the atrocities it has committed, and has attempted to cover up. If your biggest concern is a change in the liturgy, maybe you should re-evaluate your priorities.
