When you begin to sit down and assess every atrocity happening right now, not just historically, RIGHT NOW, and then compare this as the Irish people use their democratic right to vote in favour of two adults of the same sex choosing to marry….
Then Read of this;
“The Pope’s right hand man has called the landslide yes vote a
‘defeat for humanity’.”
“I was deeply saddened by the result,” Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state, said at a conference in Rome on Tuesday night. “The church must take account of this reality, but in the sense that it must strengthen its commitment to evangelisation. I think that you cannot just talk of a defeat for Christian principles, but of a defeat for humanity.”
And when you contemplate the Cardinal’s words and step back to look at the ecological and humanitarian crises he actually SHOULD be directing his comments toward, you realise what an utterly fucked up institution the catholic church and other religious institutions are.
The fact that so many Billions of the Earth’s human population lack the cognition and enlightenment to think and act for themselves and depend on these fucking charlatans makes me “deeply saddened” and see this as the greatest threat, a “defeat for humanity.”
what an incredibly stupid man Cardinal Pietro Parolin undoubtedly is.

Parolin’s remarks on the Irish vote are significant given the broader role Parolin plays in crafting the church’s message on major diplomatic and social issues.
At the time of his appointment in 2013, veteran Vatican reporter John Allen wrote in the National Catholic Reporter that Parolin had been “on the frontlines of shaping the Vatican’s response to virtually every geopolitical challenge of the past two decades”.
Among other issues, the Italian cardinal has been an outspoken advocate for action to combat global warming. In recent remarks, he denounced the “globalisation of indifference and the economy of exclusion” that has put the planet in peril.
He has also been the public face of Francis’s diplomatic efforts, including the church’s role in helping Cuba and the US restore diplomatic ties.
But on Tuesday, with his choice of words, Parolin differed from the pope in one respect: the Argentinian pontiff has also used the phrase “defeat for humanity”, but he was talking about war, not the legalisation of gay marriage.
