Due to constant misunderstanding with my name I feel the need to change my intro. I am hateful, hateful of religion. I hate what religion does to people and that people use it as an excuse to not think. I have spent many years of my life as an Atheist and have learned to handle my emotions, but no other word quite describes how I feel towards religion short of hate. I am outspoken, open minded, and will share my opinion. If you're looking for someone who will always agree with you, that won't be me.

COLUMBUS — The hacktivist group, Anonymous, is threatening to dig up dirt on members of the Columbus Catholic Diocese if a fired gay teacher is not allowed to return to her job at Bishop Watterson High School. The group released a video Friday in support of former phys-ed teacher Carla Hale, who was fired from Bishop Watterson after referring to her partner as her spouse in a published obituary. The Anonymous video includes the group’s trademark Guy Fawkes mask, along with a computer-generated voice that threatens to find “skeletons in the closets” of members of the Diocese if Hale is not reinstated. The video’s release comes after dozens of students gathered outside the Diocese’s Downtown office on Friday morning to protest Hale’s firing.
This has been a big topic of discussion around here as of late. I have been following the story and it is amazing just how many people in central Ohio are willing to openly make bigoted statements in public about a woman who did a great job as a teacher for so many years. I’m quite sure that if “Anonymous” does have to start digging up skeletons it won’t be so hard. Catholics have more skeletons in their closets than Superman has capes.
This is pretty infuriating. I can’t imagine there are many Catholics out there that don’t feel completely ashamed of the Vatican. Excerpt below:
Feb. 16, 2013 Late breaking news on the real reason why Pope Benedict XVI quit the job as Pope is centered around the fact that he was going to be charged for crimes against humanity by shielding pedophile priests in the RC church.
A statement given to Reuters reveals that the Church has decided to grant Joseph Ratzinger immunity against any and all charges involving his protection of known sex offenders.
As a high ranking member of the Catholic Church, Ratzinger knew priests who habitually were reported as sex offenders with children and shipped them to other parishes where they continued raping children.
Even after becoming a Pope as well he protected priests by denying criminal charges.
When he was an archbishop, J. Ratzinger knowingly and willingly protected the criminal priests and thereby avoiding legal and lawful charges against them. Now the church is willfully breaking the law by giving him sanctuary against the law.
In a statement to the press today, the Vatican announced that:
It will give Joseph Ratzinger, formerly Pope Benedict XVI a permanent residency in the Vatican, which gives him legal immunity to any charges against him.
The entire world is wondering why a Pope would consider such drastic action as quitting while still in the papacy, since historically Pope’s usually die in office.
In a report the church officials indicate they are offering Ratzinger legal protection in connection with any charges that he may have protected known sexual abusers in the priesthood around the world. The Church sources indicates:
