"We want to show our solidarity to the pope and transmit the message that single individuals make mistakes but institutions, faith, and religion cannot be questioned," Alemanno told Associated Press Television News. "We will not allow this."Really?!? "Institutions" cannot be questioned??? What the fascist fuck?!?!?!?
Fortunately, at least he's right about faith. Otherwise, I'd be leaving this institution immediately. Just when you hope maybe these corrupt perverted old men will finally be forced to implement systematic reform, you see something like this.
Too many of this institution's most fervent followers seem to have confused it, a human organization subject like any other to structural defects (in its accidentals)...with religion in itself.
And as long as these yes-men exist in their big cheering crowds, the hierarchy is going to see no need to change anything (not even in the direction these very same yes-men would like, ironically), these same cheering crowds being cited as their evidence of the status quo "working just fine."
