Here are some examples of the truths and traditions of FINNEGAN'S Catholic Church.
Keep in mind that the Church was supposedly GUIDED by the holy spirit from the beginning.
In the first century the truth was that women were accepted with equal status in the fledgling Christian religion(s). After 325 the truth was that they weren’t.
In the ll th century a criminal could get into heaven by dieing for the pope on the battlefield.In the 12th cen. Pope Innocent III said that the killing of an embryo that was not yet “animated” was not murder. .
In the 13th cent Pope Gregory IX declared housecats as diabolical, leading Catholics to torture and kill house cats for centuries almost eliminating all cats in Christiandom.
In the 1400s the truth was that one could “buy” his way into heaven by giving money to the church.In the 15th century the devil could be driven out of a sexually active young girl with a hot poker placed appropriately. More truth
Thomas Aquinas wrote in his "Summa Theologica": quest. 92; that “women are intellectually inferior, they were created for males, and are the result of defects in the male seed”. More truth accepted by the Church.
In the 15th, 16th, and 17 centuries women were tortured and died screaming over slow fires as part of the Church‘s never-ending quest to validify the existence of the Devil, and condemn women as the "killers of Christ" (St. Tertullian)
Now, one might say that the Church had to EVOLVE. REALLY? Did the Morality of the Holy Spirit ALSO have to evolve through the centuries?
FINNEGAN'S Church does not and never did qualify as a Moral Teacher.
Morality has always preceded the Church, and in the wake of the advancement of human rights, the church quietly moves in from behind and assumes the credit; like letting the peasants starve for centuries; and in the wake of modern Progressive Government; moves in later and opens up “soup kitchens”; and assumes the role of the benevolent Christ. All religions; most specifically the VATICAN; are Dictatorships.
TODAY the Catholic dictators are BENEVOLENT dictators but it WASN'T always that way; and there is no guarantee that it will remain so.
Although the Vatican no longer condones torture; there is no guarantee that it cannot resume its grisly practices of the past; simply because the validity for doing so is still entrenched within its dogma.
These horrors have never been legislated out of Catholicism. They have become dormant in the wake of Liberal advancements in human rights.
If the Vatican ever regains the power it had in the past; it will again wind its way through a myriad of early Church writers; or Fathers of the Church; to again justify the red hot poker and the breast ripper.
Finnegan's Catholic Church is a sleeping horror. Do not underestimate its potential for savagery.
Beware what lies behind the warm smiles, charisma, and kind words of the Catholic Clergy.
