“There's a very, very common surname in Ireland that actually means 'priest's son'. Go figure…”

    Being a bit overly harsh here, folks. Preston means either “Priest’s Son” or “Parson’s Son”, and since it’s ENGLISH – not IRISH – in derivation, and probably came into being AFTER Henry VIII, it’s not a big deal to be a Priest’s Son if Dad was allowed to take a wife now, is it?

    There are three common Irish names, McEntaggart, McAnespie and McNab, that translate as ‘son of the priest’, ‘son of the Bishop’ and ‘son of the Abbot. (From Gaelic)

    The common presumption is that these are priests failing in their commitment to their vows, that the natural human urges to procreate has gotten the better of these men, that these men fell in love and fathered children.

    The reality too often is that these men, filled with holy delusions of power have taken advantage of women, most commonly young barely pubescent women

    You see the false front of pedophilia, while very often homosexual in nature, is also heterosexual.

    Too often people paint the avalanche of sick twisted perversions of the church as “bad eggs” or “black sheep”, too often people casually dismiss the often bloody anal and vaginal torment of children, too often people are ready to apologize for the church but not to the victim.

    People are too quick, perhaps because they know, love, and care about a devoted person, to forgive the church or religion.

    This “enabling” is precisely what the perverts require. The sociopath finds it very difficult to act in a deviant manner when it is well known that he is a problem. The sociopath constructs all kinds of smoke and mirrors to redirect the skeptic, to hide his perversions.

    We see this in politics too. Imagine the Tea Party and the Occupy people for a moment. They should be allies marching on Washington not enemies.

    Why? Because the 1% is our Representatives and Senators. See http://imgur.com/r/politics/BXouB

    If the faithful, and the partisan took a moment to look at their churches and political parties they’d be aghast at who they are surrendering authority too.

    Why is healthcare, social security, military spending, et cetera so f’d up? Why does the clergy abuse never seem to go away? Are you kidding or stupid?

    The wrong people are in charge!
