The Catholic Church in Ballarat ''effectively facilitated'' child sexual abuse by leaving known paedophiles in ministry and was ''unChristlike'', former Ballarat Bishop Peter Connors conceded on Monday.

To U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder: It is time that you do something about the Cardinals and Bishops who knowingly moved known pedophile priests from parish to parish, state to state and hid these rapists of children to avoid prosecution for the m. There is ample evidence that Cardinals Timothy Dolan, Roger Mahony, Bernard Law and others covered up these rapes of children by their priests. It is time to show these people simply because they are of a religious organization, they are not above the laws of the United States. They have committed numerous crimes against the Federal statues and it is you duty as U.S. Attorney General to do something about this.

Rhode Island‘s Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin is fighting same-sex marriage very hard because he doesn’t want gay people to go to hell. Tobin feels he’s being totally selfless, totally altruistic, because, well, the Father knows best. The Father, and his boss, Pope Benedict XVI, “know” that same-sex marriage will lead to a sentence in hell. Or, something.

“It is our very concern for [gay people's] spiritual welfare, however, that motivates our rejection of the homosexual lifestyle and same-sex marriage,” Bishop Tobin says, adding, that, of course, it’s “important to emphasize once again, however, that while rejecting homosexual activity, the Catholic Church has consistently promoted respect and pastoral care for individuals with same-sex attraction.”

At present, the Church of England is granted privileged access to our Parliament. Anglican Bishops sit alongside Peers in the House of Lords, they have the right to vote and debate, they influence our national way of life. They acquired this right solely by virtue of their religion, their gender and their position in the hierarchy of one particular denomination of one particular Church. They are unaccountable to the public.

We want fair reform of the House of Lords which does not afford privilege to any special interest group.
