They are paddling against the current as usual.

Physician assisted aid in dying is preferable to protracted suffering for a terminally ill person who is still mentally competent.

The bishops would like to remove that choice from people and replace it with their beliefs.

They are in agreement with M. Theresa who told suffering a slow death that the pain was --Jesus kissing them--.

The church has argued that vaccination was sinful because it was an tempt to frustrate Gods will.

Now they say that condoms spread diseases.

What dunderheads!

Economist, if Mother Teresa said that about suffering a slow death, and I believe you, then she was a sadistic monster. And if suffering pleases God, what kind of God is that??

Oh, also, Economist - if the church is considering doctor-assisted suicide, then it's changing its collective mind yet AGAIN....
