In California, in Maine, in Washington D.C., the Catholic Church has been spending huge amounts of money to stop people from getting married. The Catholic Church preaches that same-sex couples must not be given the equality under the law that the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America requires. American law must be bent in order to comply with the Catholic view of sexuality, the church says.
The Catholic Church view of sexuality includes taking insurance policies in order to keep the church’s money when children sexually assaulted by priests file lawsuits. That’s what the Catholic Church in Ireland did. The Catholic hierarchy there actually contacted insurance companies to arrange for financial protection from the children its priests forced to perform sex acts.
The Catholic Church’s international sex abuse scandal has included widespread assault by priests here in the United States. So, why does the Catholic Church think that anyone ought to listen to its preaching about proper sexual morality?
