Hey wait a minute, that is really just marketing. Churches can use marketing. Bad taste? Maybe. Plus that's the catholic church, and its NYC. Put it in context. You can't equate the charlatan salesmen with the religion or its adherents. I never liked that whole confession thing. When there are murderers and rapists confessing and then the church helps justice happen confession might be helpful, plus confessing is good for the soul. But I see no personal benefit from it, but then I'm not catholic. I can't be a catholic, too much kneeling, get down, get up, get down, get up. Oy! I was in a catholic wedding once and that was enough for me. Catholicism isn't for wussies.
"Just marketing"? Here is what Bill Hicks said:

Catholicism is for the guilty. Those who need to be forgiven for their sins and those who didn't realize those sins existed before the church defined those sins for them. Then again the "church" has murdered many humans and wasted many more lives.
When the "church" murdered the Native Shamans by burning them at the stake in the 1600's, they'd say it with their "god's" mercy or forgiveness or some shyte.
I'd write more, but I don't have time.
