Willful murder by the Catholic church

by Neil Rickert

I don’t often write condemning religion.  There are many decent people who are religious.  But this headline reports an incident that demands condemnation:

The medical condition of the woman was clear.  But religious demagogues, with their utterly stupid ideas about abortion, condemned the woman to death by refusing her the treatment that could have saved her life.

PZ weighs in:

Bloody butchers and pious toads who mask their medieval ignorance with a pretense of charity and care; it’s long past time to end the illusion and recognize the barbarism of the church. Shut ‘em down.

Eric MacDonald weighs in:

Isn’t it just about time that we told religious moralists to shove it?

I agree with both of them.

We ought to be outraged at this gross inhumanity being carried out in the name of religion.

Enough said.
