As a washed-up comedian, Roseanne Barr makes news these days for tearing apart other celebrities and making controversial comments. Two recent cases in point?
Now, the former sitcom star has taken on a much more popular opponent: the Catholic Church. As that institution faces criticism in light of new molestation charges against multiple priests (crimes possibly covered up by the Pope many years ago), Barr has taken to her blog.
You must read what she wrote:
the pedo priests are trying to cover up the number of LITTLE GIRLS they have molested too, as if that doesn't matter as much as what happens to boys. Trust me, the number of girls raped and molested by priests is at least double the boys. They are trying to cover it all up so that they can end up purging gay priests, and laying the blame on them.
The fact is pedos like to rape both boys and girls, and only a small number of pedos are exclusively into male children. I am starting to think that any parent who takes their kids to catholic churches from now on should lose custody. Taking your kid where you know sex offenders hang out is inexcusable!!!
There are clearly issues facing the Catholic Church these days, but referring to it as a "place where sex offenders hang out," as if one's child will walk in and get raped? Seems a bit of a generalzation from Roseanne, no?
What do you think of her comments?
