  2. > In New York, for example, the Catholic Church spent $2,912,772 lobbying against the Child Victims Act, which Governor Andrew Cuomo ultimately signed into law on February 14, 2019. The act gives survivors more time to seek justice against their abusers, increasing the age at which victims are able to sue from 23 to 55.

    > Similarly, in Pennsylvania — where in 2018 a grand jury report detailed evidence of more than 300 priests credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 children — the Catholic Church spent $5,322,979 lobbying to keep current restrictions in place on the statute of limitations in which victims can seek criminal or civil charges against their abusers.

  3. If you’ve ever put money in the plate on Sunday you’ve been actively funding this abuse. The Catholic Church should have its property seized by the state for its use in a criminal conspiracy.

  4. “I’m Catholic but I don’t support their heinous crimes…I just give offerings.”

    Oh, no, I think you do. In fact, 10.6 million dollars worth of you do all while turning a blind eye.

    “Well, I’ll just say 3 hail marys and pray really hard tonight about it and that’s that…”

    Godfuckingdamnit Karen. That’s not how this works.

    “STOP PERSECUTING ME!!!”

  5. wow, $1.25 million a year for eight years is absolutely nothing compared to the money they would have hoped to save. then, of course, i would say that it isn’t their money they should have been trying to save

  6. In the United $tate$, the highest court in the land calls this “*Freedom of Speech*.”

    While folks with deep pockets are assured they have a voice [‘member the Trump guy: “No money, no meeting” basically?], people who DO NOT have a voice are placed behind bars, separated from their loved ones, and left to waste away …because we’re too pathetic to stop a lifetime asshole and criminal like Trump, and all the other politicians who support these shitty, inhumane policies because it makes someone else rich. Read about it [here](https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-katz-immigrant-concentration-camps-20190609-story.html).

    THIS HAS GOT TO FUCKING END.

    So when is that convenient for everyone… that we stop trading lives for money (healthcare, prison / weapons industries, banking, housing, education, food security, etc)? It’s literally killing us, but we sit in the burning house like the dog, or the boiling pot like a frog. This isn’t “living,” or rather it’s being alive while human lives are exploited. I’m fucking sick of it. When the fuck are we gonna show we’re something other than crazed animals, simply with new and improved tools?

  7. So wait, you’re telling me that a organisation that is built with blood money, has basically only ever told lies to every one of its members in order to take from the poor and give to the mega rich, and who is also the world’s biggest child sex abuse cover up scheme in action cares not about the victims of child sex abuse?

    I can not believe it.

  8. I was raised catholic and I believe it’s a cult run by men. Time for the catholic religion to by closed! Plus it’s a huge money scam. I obviously switched religions!
