... Not Just L.A., The City of Angels Is Everywhere...

I was age five when the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what the priest did to you." Then, forty years later... I started babbling.

Questioning Vatican Status in United Nations

.
Now that the scandal of the sex abuse of minor boys and girls and adult men and women in virtually every country with a church presence has touched the heart of the Vatican, singeing the present Pope himself for his alleged role in the protection of guilty priests, it may be appropriate to seek a review of the unique status the Roman Catholic Church enjoys at the United Nations. The Vatican slipped into the UN in the guise of the Holy See, the Government of the Roman Catholic Church, and sits on that august body as a Non-member State Permanent Observer.

The UN Secretary-General owes it to the international community to define the church as either a religion or a polity. If the Vatican is a state, it must end its presence as a religion in other countries; if it represents a faith denomination, it should participate in UN forums in exactly the same way as other religions and sects do — as a non-governmental organisation.

From The Pioneer, New Delhi:

Vatican does not deserve UN status

Dear Cyberstalker.
I have two paid jobs, and a disability, I do this blog in whatever free time I have. All the hours you've spent hounding me with your nasty comments, most of which I delete, you could have been contributing something. Who is paying you to harass me, or has it just been a long time since you were employable for anything but cyberstalking.
