Can We Encourage Others With The Truth About The Liars?


By Yak ~

Yet Another Representative of Christ Shown to Keep Toxic Secrets:

The old adage that "The fish rots from the head-back" certainly proves itself to be both true and relevant on an on-going basis.

Secretly fathering a child while in the institution of higher learning that "forms" priests in their role as spiritual leaders, "pastors," confessors, truth-tellers and even judges of other people's faith (ever been told by a christian pastor/priest/minister/teacher that "your conscience wasn't formed correctly" when you took issue with their crazy-making?)

Famously, (and joining the long, distinguished and rapidly growing list of religious vow-takers-and-breakers) Thomas Merton, a member of the Catholic "Trappist" or "Cistercian" monastic order -- one of the golden boys of their religion -- also fathered a child while at school. But, true to form, members of his organization have made sure that his woman and his child are covered up.

Whenever sexual indiscretions occur in Christianity both the leaders and the followers engage in aggressive denial, minimizing, and altering the stories, and, in an outright demonstration that religious brainwashing is both real, rampant and insidious. Incredibly, they still believe that they still inhabit the position of the moral higher ground.

I did hear an elderly monk say once, "never underestimate the power of denial." No truer statement was ever made by a member of religion.

Wouldn't it be interesting if there was an easy to reach online list of these people, the dates, and the names of those who were involved --and the cover-ups-- so that there is reliable proof that one can turn to when a person decides to leave the seething and tricky cauldron of "holy" and arrogant religion?

I can't think of a more helpful and compassionate way to encourage those who wish to de-convert and get their lives back. "The truth will-out," as the old saying goes. So, why not use the truth as something helpful and kind to those who are sick and tired of the lies, denial and shame, but who find themselves being scapegoated and shamed by the very religious people they are trying to get away from?

I wonder: with the rapidly increasing number of illegitimate children discovered as being popped out by christian leaders, we may be doing the milkmen of the world a terrible disservice.

It may be time to revise the old saying from being, "He/she doesn't look like his/her father, he/she must be the milkman's kid" to "He/she is the christian leader's kid."

To the Milkmen of the world: we offer you a sincere apology. You're indiscretions appear to have been up-staged by religion.

Your thoughts?
