3. Well, I think the federal government ought to stop "materially compensating" them for the running of

their little charities where they take the credit and pretend that they didn't get any of that welfare cheese they're handing out in sandwiches from their "feeding centers" from Uncle Sam. Same deal with a lot of other subsidies they get. If they want to be a charity, be one--stop taking people's medicaid cards for reimbursement from the evil gubmint at the emergency rooms, or taking funding and food from government surplus.

The bottom line is "Don't like it? Don't do it." They need to stop telling others what to do and mind their own damn sins.

And I suggest that if the Bishops want to be really honest, they'd start grilling all these "Catholic families" who show up at mass with only two or three children. Surely if they were giving it a decent go, they'd have a half dozen or more, and a boy for the priesthood and a girl for the convent.

When once-devout 90 year old ladies are turning their backs on the Catholic church, there's something fucked up about THE CHURCH--not the little old ladies. And I'm seeing that happen, in increasing numbers, the more rigid and angry the church gets.
