Why would anyone believe in a “god” whose church is so disgusting? Look at this article:
As Germany–the pope’s own homeland–continues to be rocked by allegations of priestly abuse, many are wondering how high the scandal will go–after all, Pope Benedict XVI himself, as archbishop of Munich, approved an abuser’s therapy treatment without reporting it to authorities, though he claims not to have known about the abuse. Meanwhile, the pope’s attempt to put out a similar fire in Ireland with a letter this past weekend is stirring mixed reactions.
If there actually were a God, why would he stand by silently as all of this crap happened in his own church? Obviously he would not. It is the easiest way to see that God is imaginary.
Someone will pull out the old “free will” excuse. But you can’t have it both ways: God cannot both “respect free will” and “answer prayers”. If he intervenes to answer prayers, then he would also intervene to eliminate crap in his church.
Someone else will say, “The Christian God doesn’t answer prayers.” That is both a contradiction of the Bible and a contradiction of the beliefs of billions of Christians. It also means God does not interact with our universe, meaning that he is imaginary.
