Well, yes. I love me some nuns too, including Claire-Édith de la Croix .

When I condemn the hierarchy of the Church, that’s not to say that I think there’s nothing good about what some people in the Church are doing.

But it’s just an unequivocal fact that working to stop safer sex education and working to prevent condom distribution in Africa is horrible evil.

Pope Francis has blood on his hands. He is behaving evilly by failing to act to stop the evil of the Church in Africa, evil that is going on right this very minute as I type these words.

People are dying every single day because of the evil of the Roman Catholic Church in Africa.

That’s not my opinion. It’s a clear and simple fact.

It’s too bad people don’t want to hear that.

It’s too bad people don’t want to stop that.

Just like they didn’t want to stop the clear evil of Cardinal O’Conner’s Church in New York in the 1980s and 90s, they give the hierarchy of the Church today a moral pass.

It’s unconscionable.

We must say to the official Church today what we in Act Up said to them in the 80s and 90s.

Stop killing us.

Your religion is no excuse for your evil inhumanity.

Sam Harris is right.

Faith is dangerous to society. It facilitates the acceptance of clear evil.
