Last night I wrote a great blog for today’s Dangerous Talk continuing the whole South Park controversy. Then, I posted it to the Examiner page instead. So now I can talk about how ridiculous the Muslims are and the Catholics. Both religions are now feeling to the heat from the mainstream religious-ass-kissing media.
The media generally treats religion with reverence even when religious individuals or groups do morally indefensible things. But lately, the media has been taking a more critical tone with the Catholic Church and Islam.
This whole South Park controversy has gotten the media to step up against Islam while using South Park as a shield. The media isn’t attacking Islam, South Park is and the little old media is just covering the story. Unfortunately, Islam is too powerful right now. However, since the Muslim religion has little to no power in America, that fight is more a European battle for the time being and outraging Americans isn’t going to help much. This may be a wake up call to Europe though. We’ll have to see.
The Catholic Church however is really on the run. They might actually lose this fight. When the media started to report all of the sexual abuse and the related cover-ups, most people thought that the Church was too powerful to be held accountable. They still may be, but one thing is certain, they are not nearly as powerful as they were.
I think one of the reasons why the Catholic Church might be losing this one is because they didn’t take it seriously early along. They really thought God had their back and they horribly miss-managed he situation. Instead of being humble, admitting the problem, and being open to the media and the authorities they decided to blame everyone else including the media. That just makes the media double down and people suspicious about what the Church is hiding and who they are really protecting.
It is becoming more and more obvious to the general public (Catholics included) that the Church is more about the money and protecting themselves than doing what is just and right.
The Pope still doesn’t realize it yet, but the world is coming for him. The Catholic Church is going down. Islam might take awhile longer.
