Take the Build-a-Bear Double Standard Test: If you’re outraged by Build-a-Bear’s actions in this fictional scenario but defend what the Catholic Church has done for decades, then you’re a hypocrite with no sense of right and wrong and have no business lecturing atheists on morality.

priest or teacher does.
The priest, who the interviewer noted seemed totally unbothered by the ongoing criminal case, said that he has “entrusted myself to Jesus and Mary.”*

brother of former Pope Benedict XVI were abused, with 47 of them raped.
Last month, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington DC, resigned, facing a litany of sex abuse allegations, including sexual abuse of an altar boy and rape of two young trainee priests.”
* Then arrest Jesus and Mary as well…as enablers and abettors…!
Religion is reinforced by friends, family, caregivers, movie, music, education, laws and even holidays. Everything in a religious environment and culture serves to reinforce the conditioning. And if you’re religious, you won’t even notice.
