So do they change the name of the hospital to “Joseph’s”? On a serious note, are there any financial implications to the hospital?

Well, that is unfortunate for The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix. I would want to be positively associated with something described as “recognized internationally for its neurology and neurosurgery practices”.

Time for the RCC to lose its tax exempt status. BTW, I’m a Catholic, but since they won’t clean up their act, somebody will have to do it for them. Just see the two links:

Dutch bishops shredded sex abuse evidence
and

Pope blames Society at large for church’s humiliating record on child abuse by priests

The chutzpah. It burns!

fuck religious authoritarianism

I mean really, what pointlessness, what just septic mindless garbage that any religious fool with an office and a bit of power thinks they have some right to get between someone and their doctor

This is nothing new. The Church showed its full compassion when a nine year old who had been raped by her step-father had the pregancy aborted to save her life. Both her mother and the doctors were excommunicated. I guess the girl should paid with her life for the ‘crime’ of being an abuse victim.

And just in case you think they’ve changed recently, here’s today’s gem:

That’s right, folks. Exorcism school. I would normally have let that go, even though I find the idea of demonic possession medieval. But this part made me furious:

To be possessed, “you have to invite a demon in. Demons are always looking for broken or nonexistent relationships between human beings. I’ll give you an example. Eighty percent of the people who come to see me have been sexually abused by a family member [or other person],” Thomas said. “Sexual abuse is a doorway for a demon. It doesn’t mean that they will be possessed. It does mean that they’re vulnerable.”

That’s right. Sexual abuse victims are willing agents of the Devil. I’ve heard of people and institutions denying or downplaying abuse by ‘demonising’ the victims, but I’ve seen anyone do that literally.

The Catholic Church: Tough on child abuse, tough on the causes victims of child abuse.
