“So a Catholic rapes four children and kills two of them...Goes to confession...Tells the priest he’s sorry and won’t do it again...
Priest tells him he is forgiven and to go and sin no more”
Uh, what? Have you ever heard of a little thing called atonement? I don’t imagine there’s a priest in the world who would ask nothing more of a rapist murderer than to confess.
It’s one thing to go after the idea of forgiveness. Religion can certainly be exploited cynically. Some people even figure they can be good Catholics and do whatever the hell they want so long as they don’t die unexpectedly and get the last rites. But make sense in you attack, at least. Gross parodies have to have some level of credibility.
OK...Give an example...What would a priest require for an atonement in such a situation???
