Parental Consent, Church, and Raped Little Girls

I’ve said for a long time now that “Parental Choice” = legalized abuse of raped little girls, but now the Catholic Church chimes in:

“Cardinal Alfonso Llopez Trujillo announced Tuesday that the Colombian Catholic Church has excommunicat ed all persons involved in obtaining an abortion for an 11-year-old girl, who became pregnant after she was raped.

The order includes the judges, politicians and legislators involved in the decision, as well as the doctors, nurses and the girl’s parents, the Manila Bulletin Online reported today.”

An 11 year old girl was raped and the Colombia Catholic Church wants to add to her misery by forcing her to carry her rapist’s child with the threat of excummunicat ion of her supporters.

What kind of “church” does something like that? All I can say is if I were one of the excommunicat ed, I’d be proud.

  1. All I can say is if I were one of the excommunicat ed, I’d be proud.


    What is godly about forcing a child to be pregnant after being raped? What makes that moral?

  2. Did they excommunicat e the rapist?  I’ll bet they didn’t.

  3. And people say the UN does nothing!  It was the UN that forced Colombia’s h and regarding abortion.  Fortunately, the Colombian courts, in the end, realized that universal blanket banning of all abortion is inhumane, uncivilized, and amounts too child abuse.


  4. Of course not, Austin!  If they set that kind of precedent, they’d have an even bigger shortage of priests than they already do.

  5. Ouch LJ!!!  Good one though!  Man I hate religion…

  6. Baaa-ZING LJ!

  7. They’d first have to join it, LAW. 

    I’ve posted this before but, here is/was the final nail in the coffin for my catholicism.   When I read it, it finished any probability whatsoever of me ever trusting/bel ieving in any organised religion again.

    And, it that wasnt’ enough, ther e’s a whole host of other reasons I won’t listed here:

  10. I don’t get why Ann hates the Church cause the law says heads of state are immune from prosecution in certain cases…anyone help me out with this?  I mean, hate the Church all you want, I just don’t get the logic.

  11. […] via Bring it On. Thanks to Matt for the link. […]

  12. Jaxi - duh? Is that where you’re speaking from?? Are you kidding?  

    Firstly: I really can’t stand it when people make ridiculous, asinine, assumptions about me - especially when they presume I (or anyone else for that matter) would form an opinion based solely on one reason. I don’t. Never have. In fact, I know no one who does.

    Secondly: I didn’t say I hated the church.  I don’t, particularly . In fact, I’m pretty sure it serves a purpose, for some people - including several people I know and/or am related to.  What I said, in reference to the links I posted, was they were the ”final nail in the coffin for my catholicism”  (admittedl y, I’ve added the emphasis, to make it clearer for you)- meaning that the events catalogued within them were the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak, in my faith in the catholic church as an organisation I want to be part of.  I have plenty of reasons for my decision to break away from my lifetimes indoctrinati on into Catholicism but I’m pretty sure nobody really wants to hear them here. And I don’t think I want to talk about them either.

    So, let me ask you: Do you really think heads of state (religious or otherswise)  should be granted some sort of special i mmunity in ‘certain cases’ -  including those of alleged child abuse and, even when the complaint was filed before the person even became a head of state?  

    Cause I don’t.

  13. Good point, Ann.  I have a friend who was ecommunicate d from the RCC for collaboratin g with the Liberationis ts down in Central and South America.  He doesn’t “hate” the church!  He’s just as Catholic as ever, and, if you aske me, he’s more Catholic than the Catholics who excommunicat ed him!  Catholic Social Doctrine is quite socialistic, afterall. 

    It’s a shame that American Catholics have been suckered by the Rove Machine and forgotten what they supposedly believe - helping the poor, standing up for human rights, working for peace, and the dispensation of personal wealth for these causes - all over ONE ISSUE, Jaxi.
