“oh fucking christ!”

You might wonder about the topic, but belive me, these recent happenings in Austria reguarding the catholic church are more than disturbing.
In a priests seminar in St.Pölten ( so David was right about the origin of all evil, i apologize ) child pornography was found in large quantities on at least 8 personal computers through out the camp. The priest seminar is currently under investigation and of course under heavy fire by the public and the press.
Bishop Dr. Kurt Krenn, who is responsible for this area is forced to retire, but he’s not even thinking of apologizing at the public for this huge cut into faith of the catholic community, instead he called a published homoerotic incident of 2 priests a “boy escapade”.

Child pornography officially in hands of men, the catholic community sees as role models. If you now might think “well, thats a one time occurance, can happen” let me tell you that 10 years ago there was a similar, even more bizarre case, where a grand cardinal sexually abused underage altar-boys. Cases of homosexual relationships within priesthood are also known, and handled as if it would be normal. Of course, for ethical people it IS normal that men have homosexual relationships, but the church officially sees homosexuality as a disease, which can be “cured” through gods hand, if you get converted to a hetero-Adam again, like the Bible tells you how it should be.
On top of all, i saw a TV interview with Viennas cardinal Schönborn yesterday and he justifies all allegations with “We’re still humans, and therefore we are allowed to make mistakes”. A laughable excuse. I hereby advise everyone doing criminal or illegal actions of any kind to quote the austrian leader of the catholic church on beeing offsides law.
Another sad fact is, that you pay ( not less though ) money to be in the catholic community, or lets say, to be a catholic at all, in austria. So for a second forget the everyday-rant “What the fuck are they building with our taxes here again” and see it as a sad, a very sad matter of fact, that you are paying money to the church, and hereby support child pornography without knowing.

    tom dear, you just did the awful thing and mixed everything up.
    what krenn was talking about when he said ‘boyish escapade’ was NOT the child porn-stuff but some photographs of some priests making out and smooching with their students. this really should be a completely differnet discussion. as for the child-porn he said nothing but that they were investigating the matter.

    Bitte findets euch jemanden, der die englischen Texte korrigiert. Dieses Schaffnerenglisch ist ja peinlich.
