Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho and Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re are sick, evil Malvolios not fit to run a hot dog stand let alone a major world religion that is supposed to provide comfort to millions.

Mother and daughter went through terrible experiences, and as a topper the church says "ta da, you're now cut off from one of your few sources of solace and are damned to hell."

P.S.: I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the Catholic Church thinks child sexual abuse isn't a big deal, but the sheer inhumanity still pisses me off.

Well, in the eyes of the Catholic Church, women aren't supposed to have any rights. At all. It doesn't matter that this poor girl went through a horrible experience and these doctors were trying to save her life, not to mention sparing her from having to give birth to her step-father's babies. Of course, they'll side with the abuser and let the victims suffer.

And the Catholic Church wonders why people are turning away from God. I mean, I'm sure it can't possibly be because of these bastard cardinals.

I think it was Marion Zimmer Bradley who said, I don't have a problem with Jesus -- it's his fan club that's causing all the problems.

As one feminist comedian once said, if men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

I find the double standard infuriating--the article specifically says that the doctors feared the children would harm the girl's health (because, hello, grown women pregnant with twins are sometimes forced to abort one in order to carry the other to term; 9 year old girls have no chance in hell) and yet "He did not excommunicate the step-father, saying the crime he is alleged to have committed, although deplorable, was not as bad as ending a fetus's life." Excuse me? The doctors said that if they hadn't aborted the fetuses, the girl would have died! Sexual abuse + attempted murder = excommunication. And I seriously doubt the twins would have survived in any case--the girl is just too young.
