Tolerance Watch: Catholic-bashing at Salon.com
Posted by Laura
Bjorn Philip Beer, an organic farmer/writer/software designer, offers a tutorial on what Jesus would do if he were here today:

"If Jesus were here today, he wouldn’t be in a Catholic Church preaching about an American woman’s access to contraceptives. Rather, he would be providing birth control pills to mothers in forgotten villages and slums throughout the developing world. He would be giving men condoms so they wouldn’t pass on HIV to their wives, lovers, girlfriends, prostitutes, and the children they’d have without birth control." I don't pretend to know what Jesus would do or say, but Beer offers an entirely intolerant and narrow view of Catholic teachings. He also conveniently fails to credit or even mention groups such as the Catholic Health Service Association of Southern Africa for the amazing work, compassion and care it provides to thousands afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Its 41 clinics and two hospitals, orphanages, parish projects and other outreach efforts in Botswana, Swaziland, South Africa . Moreover, the AIDS Office of the Bishops Conference now finances approximately 170 projects in South Africa alone, most of them Catholic. Most Dioceses also operate "AIDS teams", with responsibility for home care, prevention, and for the care of orphans and other at risk youth. Thousands of proud American Catholics donate generously to help fund these efforts (and the U.S. government gives grant money as well), and no amount of anti-Catholic bigotry will stop us from doing so.
