Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.

Catholic Church in spotlight again over child abuse

An inquiry has been instigated into numerous reports of sexual abuse in Ballarat and other areas of Victoria by members of the Catholic Church (surprise, surprise.). More evidence of the widespread problem of pedophilia in the Catholic Church and how they always, without fail, work their arses off to cover it up and keep it under wraps. Apparently doing right by your flock comes second to doing right by your shepherds...

As a result of these terrible acts it's believed 30 or more men have committed suicide. To my shock, the majority of cases occurred in Catholic Boys schools. Are we ever going to hear the end of these sorts of stories...?
