A Catholic Priest in Rhode Island Suggests Abortion is More Heinous than Pedophilia

CNN

In an interview with CNN affiliate WJAR, the Rev. Richard Bucci of Sacred Heart Church said that while abuse is a "horrible thing," the comparison between pedophilia and abortion is unfair because he believes more children have been aborted than abused.

"We are not talking about any other moral issue, where some may make it a comparison between pedophilia and abortion," the West Warwick priest said in the interview, published Sunday. "Pedophilia doesn't kill anyone and this does."


You can't make this shit up.

2. According to one clergyman I heard sin is sin, all the same.

According to the fundie pastor on the radio I heard one day. Abortion is a sin, the Lamborghini in your garage is between you and God.

4. Anything to justify raping children, I guess.

That's some sick rationalizing that considers it better to traumatize a child than it is to vacuum out a clump of cells, but that's religion for you.
