Catholics are responsible for the rape of more children, the murder of more women, and the torture of more innocent people than any other institution ever devised by man. From its origin through this very day, the Catholic 'Church' has suppressed knowledge and fought scientific progress. They openly and actively supported slavery. They supported racism, fascism, and sexism. They were allies of Hitler and Mussilini. They published the Witches Hammer, a 'how to' guide to torture and murder innocent women. They burned scientists at the stake in a futile attempt to keep the masses from learning the Bible is incorrect. They tortured and murdered multitudes in the Inquisition and and Crusades - all in the name of a loving God. Is the Catholic Church evil? Yes. It is the most evil institution ever devised by man. The Pope's apology for the vast amount of "sins committed by the church" in 2000 is not enough. It is ridiculous. The Pope has yet to apologize and to return the WEALTH stolen away from the Philippines - the poorest country in Asia today as the only Catholic country in Asia since the 16th century. Moreover, the Pope has yet to apologize for the public execution of Jose Rizal - the greatest Filipino who was the greatest enemy of the Catholic Church in the Philippines.
Indeed, the Catholic church has never had a vested interests in prosperity as a way to pave the way for the spread of common Filipino decency. The Catholic church in the Philippines has always insured for the filipino only misery, poverty, and indeed religious stupidity as the best way to maintain political and social insanity.
