Boy Buggery Club's Book Boycotting Beastly Behaviour


This was just too good to bundle up in the last post.

NEW YORK (AFP) - New York's Roman Catholic Church is trying a novel approach to alert children to the danger of being sexually assaulted by a priest, with an abuse-themed coloring book, officials said Tuesday.

"Being Friends, Being Safe, Being Catholic," was distributed earlier this year to several hundred schools in the New York area as part of the church's Safe Environment Program, a spokeswoman from the city's Archdiocese said.

One image in the book features a guardian angel hovering over an altar boy with a priest lurking in the background.

"For safety's sake, a child and an adult shouldn't be alone in a closed room together," the angel counsels. In another, the angel warns of a sexual predator attempting to chat with a child over the Internet. more

The Jesus never existed site is pretty neat. As for the Catholic coloring book, ha ha ha. Do they not find the irony in warning children about god's chosen, then asking them to trust them with confession, all the while telling them of purity and love? This would be hard enough for an adult to reconcile let alone a small child. Just goes to show you how logical the faithful are today. HH

The ironic thing H is all this celibacy bullshit has no founding in religion, it was to stop priests marrying and thus leaving property to wives instead of mother church.
