Yes indeed. I'd known about this idea for a long time, but it was only
after talking to a catholic about it* and learning that many people
*literally* believe in it that I realised what a vile concept it really
is. It was then that I started thinking of religion in general, and the
catholic church in particular, as an active force for evil in the world.
* That was the first time I can remembering actually getting angry about
how stupid someone was. Maybe because this wasn't just shake-your-head
stupid, but /dangerous/ stupid.
