At this point, if somebody gives money to the catholic church, then they're pro-pedophilia. There's no longer any plausible deniability or suggesting the money goes only to good deeds. It directly supports ongoing pedophilia which is condoned by the church as a necessary by-product of their operations.

It also goes to compensate victims it seems

So do you say that of anyone who sends their kid to a Catholic school?

Yes, of course. There are some excuses in regional areas where the public schools have their own major problems. But sending your kid to a school where they're taught the special guy in the fancy robes reads a special book that means he can tell you everything which is right or wrong is going to hamper their education as well as inhibiting their critical thinking and making them vulnerable to abuse.

It's the last thing you'd want your kid being taught in school.

Ah fair enough. Do you verbalise this opinion to friends and acquaintances who send their kids to Catholic schools?

FYI I do send my son to a Catholic school I should probably add

Yes I do. There's an all girls' catholic school in my town, plus a fundy Christian college at the end of my street. Depending on the context (and if kids are around) I do say basically what I've been saying here. I don't bring it up out of the blue. But when we're talking about school choice (which parents do fairly often), I do tell them that I think Religious Education is detrimental to kids' education.

One kid at my daughters' school doesn't celebrate birthdays and can't come to this weekends' festival because of their religion. That misses out on a lot of socialising and fun because her parents have been brainwashed. It's awful and I feel very bad for that child. I don't talk to their parents about it (religion) because they're obviously too far gone (and I think they actively make sure it never comes up).
