Catholic Church

I'm no fan of the Roman Catholic church but sometimes it surprises even me by the sheer depths of its vicious nastiness. 

In Brazil the Archbishop there excommunicated  doctors for performing an abortion on a nine year old girl who had been repeatedly raped by her father and was pregnant with twins (according to The Economist). The girl's mother was let off by the Archbishop lightly: she was just expelled from the church.  The rapist received no punishment from the church. Once this was highlighted to the powers that be in Rome they 'criticised the haste with which the decision was made.'

Any large institution may have sick and evil members, even at its highest levels. But when the global leadership fails to condemn and reverse this decision, and throw out the Archbishop concerned, you just have to wonder why anyone in their right minds would want to belong to such an institution.

What would Jesus say?
