Do you believe the Catholic Church is corrupt?
I'm atheist and come from a Catholic family,but I believe the catholic church is corrupt.I love learning about religion and spirituality,I respect all beliefs,and I always try to avoid any persuasion from the media;such as stereotypes about Islam and Catholics and Scientology,but I can't help believing the Catholic church is just corrupt,so many lies and ugh,even the head of the church not admitting his faults and the faults of the Catholic church as a whole.
Agree or disagree?
And if you're going to whine,get butt hurt,cry,or block me or other people you can just not answer:D

Yes, I'm agnostic... It's corrupt, I'm not going to press anyone else to follow my beliefs. But I think it's corrupt in the way it adapts and adjusts. I don't think many modern day 'catholics' actually read the bible or pay attention in church they just go to church because of how they were raised. But if you look back in time, the church was more strict in the past, no meat on fridays and no work on the sabbath, the sabbath used to be a saturday not sunday. There are about 170 commandments not 10, you used to be able to buy pardons to avoid going into hell for sinning. Then all that changed for no reason whatsoever. And now they (well in Ireland anyway) the church not only helped cover up, but they also protected priest who were paedophiles? I mean what sort of example is that? They also say peace and love to all men, except gays and those with different beliefs... eh? There are a lot of verses in the bible catholics have clearly never read, a lot very forcefully suggest that certain groups of people should die and don't have a right to live. I think it's very hypocritical of itself and it changes way too easily to avoid any sort of criticism... How can people just change 'gods' word to suit and still believe in it? It's all flawed to me.1
