Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho: Sadistic Idiot

Brazilian Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho has excommunicated everyone involved with helping a nine-year-old girl secure an abortion after her step-father impregnated her with twins. Please take a sip of your favorite beverage and let that sink in. Ready? The excommunications include the girl’s mother and her doctors and are especially serious in such a staunchly Catholic country. Abortion is illegal in Brazil except in cases of rape or when the life of the mother is endangered. In this case, both criteria were met. Remember, this was a nine-year-old pregnant with twins. Regardless, Sobrinho sees this as pretty cut and dry, saying that the laws of man don’t trump the laws of God. And no one can argue that while God frowns upon the semi-incestuous rape of prepubescent children, His hands are tied when it comes to saving them from a horrible, bloody death by stillborn childbirth. Of course, the good news here is that the child in question will live now, and all her family and friends will finally be free from a bunch of jackasses in dresses telling them what to do. More details here.
