Can we have a thread about Catholics that doesn't end with calling for the abolition of the church and blanket condemnations of the entire church hierarchy as a pedophile ring and organized crime syndicate? As a lapsed-Catholic with a very Catholic family, I find it pretty distasteful. I'm not asking for censorship or anything, but it seems that piling on Catholics seems to be acceptable here, but lolxtian threads in general are not.
Also, lazy and ignorant shots at Catholic doctrine like "The pope is infallible, therefore you are all wrong!" (favorited, too!) are a little tired.
"I would make my shocked face but I'm afraid our local priest would stick his dick in it."
"How many more of these will it take before this 2000 year old confidence game and criminal racket is brought down? How can people be so stupid as to continue looking to these monsters for moral guidance?"
etc, it doesn't take much looking to find pretty offensive stuff...
