Like what?

Okay, what now? I can't believe I just saw this article. Abuse furore 'like anti-Semitism'. You mean like how the abusees are the Jews and the pedophile priests are preying Nazis?

Oh, wait, the person was defending the church. Yes, how dare we accuse the pope of being complicit in covering up the activities of priests under his control that are morally outrageous, that's exactly like how people are accusing Jews of... what? Being in control of the money? Erm... how?

One particular quote: "The use of stereotypes, the passing from personal responsibility and guilt to a collective guilt remind me of the more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism." Really? Reminds me of standard tactics of religion that ascribe olden times activities to current day. Original Sin anyone? Blaming current Germans for the activities of the Nazis? The sins of the fathers are entirely considered as done by the sons.

Even aside from the children, there are what happens to the women...

We've brought other organisations to task for their activities. The church should not be exempt.

I'll admit that this video doesn't entirely link with the discussion but I do think it's worthwhile putting it here
