The Catholic Church will have to sell off dozens of properties in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador in order to raise money to pay settlements for victims of child sex abuse. It’s the latest twist in a decades-old saga—and only a few of the buildings will likely remain Catholic churches under new ownership.

Church resale values are kind of iffy. I wish they'd make them sell some of their Catholic hospitals so people can start getting adequate parental planning procedures in them.

Within the last 3 years they have bought five municipal hospitals in Oklahoma. This forces many people who want vasectomies or tubal ligations go as much as 100 miles to get the procedures done. But of course there is the instance of rape victims and pregnancy.

We would have to convince white "Christian" men that they are not automatically entitled to political power merely because of their particular combination of race, religion, and gender. Good luck with that.


Good! Now revoke their tax exempt status. 🙂


Sue the entire rcc into bankruptcy and oblivion.
