Demented Thinking

A group has the right to enforce conformity among its members like a secret handshake, tattoos or burn marks, or walking naked around the campus which I hear some fraternities do. And so does the church with its policy of no abortion.

But in Brazil, for the local church to have no words of condemnation for the rapist or establish a policy that would excommunicate perpetrators of the crime; to say out loud, especially with Vatican backing, that the people who actually care for the child this case the mother and the doctors are more in the wrong that takes some demented logic.

I guess if the Church can protect their own they can protect any one else.
