Roseanne Barr vs. The Catholic Church

It took a few days for the modern world to notice – mostly because her avatar confirms suspicions of boozin’ – but Roseanne fired off the following missive regarding the recent Catholic Church scandals on her blog:

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!!!

As someone who thinks religion is an absolute fairy tale used to justify hate, let me be the first to say what the fuck is Roseanne talking about?! Yes, the Catholic Church is blatantly trying to scapegoat gays, but to claim the number of girls molested is twice that of boys is a specious argument unless becoming a choir boy suddenly makes you have a vagina. I’m honestly not familiar with the process seeing as I was raised a snake-handler. Then again, so were these priests. HIYO! Hell is gonna be hot.
