That Wicked Church

Here's a couple of articles that you wouldn't have seen unless you have a Google News Alert for the Catholic Church, like some people I know:

You see, the Church is always attacking things and "grabbing" chances to pounce on innocent pharmaceutical products like the birth control pill. After all, the pill was just standing there minding it's own business. Well, actually, it was being a little naughty, but who isn't these days? And the Church! Ahem.

So, you can see by these news headlines how wicked and really hurtful the Catholic Church is.

The articles are actually interesting reads. It turns out that Carl Djerassi, one of the originators of the artificial hormone that made the birth control pill possible, is lamenting the demographic effects of the pill. In the article he describes contracepting couples as "wanting to enjoy their schnitzels while leaving the rest of the world to get on with it". It could only have been said by an Austrian.

From the Guardian article:
Djerassi outlined the "horror scenario" that occurred because of the population imbalance, for which his invention was partly to blame. He said that in most of Europe there was now "no connection at all between sexuality and reproduction". He said: "This divide in Catholic Austria, a country which has on average 1.4 children per family, is now complete."
That prickly Church, always using innocent commentary as a chance to attack. Perhaps if these meddlesome inventors would just keep their mouths shut, the bovine masses wouldn't become disturbed. These inventors don't realize how hard it is for the media to guide their flock in the way of truth and security. Sometimes, the media feels completely taken for granted. You can tell by how upset they get when their authority is questioned. Gosh!

Go back to your cud.

Wow, interesting reads. If a published article is labeled "assault" I wonder what those people would have to say about Sodom and Gomorrah!
