Australian Broadcasting Corporation: “Has Catholicism done more harm to Australia than Islam?”

There is no defense to be made of the Catholic hierarchy’s handling of the massive number of sexual abusers who were and are among its clergy. The article below, however, is correct: “What Keneally fails to understand is the difference between an injustice carried out consistent with an ideology and an injustice carried out contrary to an ideology.” This Q&A from ABC is yet another example of the West’s suicidal impulse, its intense self-hatred that leads it to embrace an ideology that would destroy it, and to reject and revile its founding principles and institutions.

Anyway, Islam may not have done as much damage to Australia as Catholicism has, but just you wait.

“ABC’s Q&A and Labor Senator says: Catholicism is more harmful than Islam,” Caldron Pool, March 3, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Over the weekend the ABC’s Q&A asked their Twitter followers if Catholicism had done more harm to Australia than Islam. Attached to the question was an article from The Guardian with the implied answer. The piece, written by Labor’s Kristina Keneally, and published back in February 2017, was titled: “Catholicism has done more harm to Australia than Islam.”

At the time, Keneally wrote in defence of the ABC’s Yasmin Abdel-Magied after she was criticised following an appearance on Q&A in which she claimed that Islam was the most feminist religion.

“It seems that every Australian Muslim who pokes their head up in public is expecd [sic] to own, explain and condemn any terrorist act carried out by any extremist Muslim anywhere in the world,” Keneally lamented. “Why isn’t this same outrage applied to Australian Catholics?”

“If we were going on body count the Catholic clergy has done more harm to more Australians than extremist Muslims,” she went on to argue. “More than 4,000 reports of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic church [sic] made to the royal commission. God knows how many more are unreported.”

The following day, The Guardian amended their piece to reflect the fact that not all 4,000 allegations of incidents of abuse were against clergy but also included lay people and religious sisters.

Keneally concluded her piece by characterising opposition to Islam as people picking on “little girls in hijabs, all in the name of making Australia safe”. That’s simply not the case. The reason why people take issue with Islam, as opposed to Christendom, is because Islam’s religious text can be used, and often has been used, to justify acts of terror. Anyone who suggests otherwise simply hasn’t read the book.

The Bible, on the other hand, cannot be used in such a way, as it explicitly condemns sexual immorality, pedophilia, and terrorism. A man who follows his Bible with consistency will find no opportunity to justify any of these injustices.
