The Archdiocese of Portland is filing for bankruptcy to stave off future pedophile priest cases against them. Pretty neat deal for them which, of course, they're doing for the sake of victims whose cases have already finished.

Yeah, suing and getting paid isn't what this is about, or at least it shouldn't be. And yeah, suing and getting some kind of compensation doesn't change anything or make anything better, but I think that if you get molested and have your life ruined like that, some kind of compensation is the least they can do for you. Furthermore, it hits the church where it counts - their wallets. Fuck them for letting this to go on, I dunno, forever.

"We have worked diligently to settle claims of clergy misconduct."

Misconduct. Passing notes in class or pulling out your dick on the merry-go-round are misconduct. This, on the other hand, is child molestation. Not just a bunch of in-poor-taste jokes about child molestation, mind you, but actual child molestation.

Man, I am all for suing the living shit out of the Church until it's bankrupt, except that it'd be nice if it didn't have to be done after thousands of kids had their lives fucked up after being molested. Can't we just sue the Church for, well, being the Church? You know, one of the biggest groups of cocksuckers ever? No pun intended on "cocksuckers." Okay, maybe a little.

I swear to fucking Christ, one of these days I'm going to put Jesus himself on trial for crimes against humanity. How many people have killed or been killed in his name? Yeah.

I can't wait to put God on the stand. I think it'll go a little something like this:

Prosecuting attorney (pointing to the defendant, Jesus): "God, is this man your son?"
God: "Nope."
