Haha, Papal fanboys
Though on a serious note, are you a practicing Catholic? I always took you for an atheist/non-practicing "may as well be atheist" Catholc, like myself, mainly due to the whole undead, homosexual, paedophile priest motif you have going on.
Well like every movement with great ideals it falls down due to the fact that the hierarchy are only human, and very conservative ones at that, since you kind of have to be old school to get into the upper-echelons.
But I understand the allegiance, mostly because I'm from Northern Ireland. So I despite being basically an atheist I get grouped with the Catholics anyway, and since most of my family and friends are still believers I feel a need to stand up for their beliefs too.
Also Catholicism is just more impressive than the other Christian faiths. We're got the gold, artwork, hierarchy, temples, history, mythology. The Protestants are basically several hundred denominations all arguing about which manner of Jesus is the correct one, whilst denouncing all the saints and the prestige.
