The corruption of the Church is from deep within and has always been. A lot of ideas were circling as I edited this: the Book of Job, the Stigmata, the obvious and numerous sex scandals of the priesthood, the Crusades, the wolf in sheep's clothing. It is a political party that is slowly eroding and rotting from within, and certainly the deceits and hypocrisy of the Catholic Church have informed my life, being raised Catholic. I am now an Atheist.

His eyes show evil intent..........

My husband was raised Catholic and feels much the same way as you do - I think going to Catholic high school cemented his realization that the church is corrupt/hypocritical.

Strongly crafted photo-art.

Thanks Anne, yeah, it seems Catholic school does a good job at driving people away from faith!

My ex, and the father of my children, was also raised Catholic. He now wants nothing to do with religion. Actually, I don't think I've ever met someone my age (41) who was raised Catholic and has not rebelled. Seems to be the norm.

Fantastic image, by the way Grin

Oh my goodness, another deeply disturbing image which will ruin my sleep tonight. Which is why it is such a powerful piece of work. Very well done.

This is really good. I can connect with the sentiments too, and believe organised religion to be one of the largest killing machines the world has ever seen. And a great money maker too!
