Help a 9 year old rape victim secure an abortion? That's an excommunication.

Another case of orginizations that should no longer exist trying to impose their will.

i was brought up catholic and that article just examplifies (is that a word?) everything that i found incongruous about the churches teachings from the age of about 11.

how can they say that you should treat your neighbour as yourself, help people, forgive and not judge when they do things like this. christians are the biggest bunch of hypocrites. i hope this poor mother will not be shunned by her own community.

Since god is capable of anything, they can change their minds on what's right and wrong.

Showed this article to my mom (she was forced to go to church as a kid and hasn't gone in 35 years) and she said "Typical catholics. Always punishing the woman."

Now, this article doesn't punish the girl but it does use psychology. What is the punishment here? Excommunication? Not exactly.

So instead of punishing one person, the church is going to make an example out of these heros to send a message to future rape victims.

Personally, I wouldn't call excommunication a punishment...but that is because I'm an Atheist.

Totally agree with you, this amounts to psychological torture on a par with any war criminal. In fact I think it is worse simply because they have had hundreds of years to perfect their strategy and method, while war criminals tend to concentrate only on the physical.
"If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men."

Far, far better to let the girl die when her uterus ruptured.......the twins would have died anyway. And her pedophiliac stepfather gets what? Absolution?

<sarcasm>He was just doing what any good Catholic father should be doing: punishing his child for being a sinner.</sarcasm>
