58. Yes, you claim to recognize the RCC's role

 

And then go to great lengths to minimize it, and make it seem less important than it is. That's what apologists like you do.

And if you think I've been despicable in holding the RCC's feet to the fire on this issue (trying to point the finger somewhere else is another classic apologist tactic, btw), then you're sadly misguided. But I doubt you'll have the honesty to step up and say exactly what about MY behavior in this discussion has been "despicable", when compared to what the RCC has done in Africa. As far as those "complicated" "multi-factorial" contributions, the RCC has done far worse than nothing..they've exacerbated the problem, and made it even worse than it would have been, even with all of those other factors in play. And for what good reason? Tell us that. What justifies their contribution to thousands of horrible deaths?
