Outrageous and tragic.

This isn't religion. It is religious persecution by legions of new Torquemadas.

A nun who was a hospital administrator in Arizona was excommunicated for approving an abortion for a seriously ill woman.

re: #1 researchok

Sadder still that people believe excommunication truly means anything; that they grant it such power over not only their self worth, but their ability to navigate real life. Holding such power over people is a cruel and selfish thing. It's the ultimate manipulation. In this case, who wants to belong to an organization that finds fault in saving the life of a 9 year old rape victim?

I wanted to be surprised by the story.

Of course, I wasn't.

This story is from a couple of years ago. At that time, and to this day, I found it outrageous that the life of a 9-year-old little girl meant absolutely nothing to the Catholic church. I found it outrageous that the church excommunicated the mother and the doctor who performed the abortion, but the child rapist stepfather was not excommunicated. It's one of the reasons why the Catholic church sanctimonious spouting about their religious freedoms and morality mean absolutely nothing to me. What a bunch of disgusting pricks.

I think the Church has proven that they really don't have a problem with child rapists. Raping a child is not a mortal sin like abortion to these people.

Let me see if I have this straight?
you believe loss of a fetus is death
without an abortion it is likely both twins and the 9 year old girl would have died therefore:

3 deaths=OK
2 deaths=SIN

Which is the point isn't it? More people, more contributions . . . .

Like the "nun" in the US who allowed an abortion in a catholic hospital to save the life of the woman....

Why do people belong to such religions? Can't they pray on their own and call it something else?//

I don't hate Catholics, but I do hate the system of Catholicism. Monsters who have either raped children, or covered-up for said rapists, are authorized to tell others to officially go to hell over abortions in cases of rape, incest, and medical emergencies. Worse still, such rot comes straight from the top. Any institution, religious or otherwise, that allows such a-holes (I can't say something strong enough to be accurate) to hold such unquestionable power is a criminal enterprise at best.

I've had it. Until Catholicism is reformed to end such inhuman abuses, I'm going to call it "the rape faith." Don't like it? Direct your complaints to the Vatican.

And please don't tell me that Catholicism isn't the only denomination guilty of such abuse. I already know. But it is the most organized and most globally influential offender.

re: #14 EiMitch

I recall reading, recently, that the Southern Baptist Convention has a horrible problem with sexual abuse within its ranks, and like the RCC, has an organized system of covering it all up.

re: #15 Eclectic Infidel

Well then Catholicism is "rape faith 1" and the Southern Baptists are "rape faith a." That way, neither rapists feel like number 2. (although they both should)
