atone (v.) – to apologize, make amends
Sure, when you’re a blood-thirsty serial killer there is a lot to consider before you select a religion. However, Catholicism easily takes the cake in most cases since you can pretty much atone for just about anything with a few Our Fathers. Plus, the clergy isn’t exactly known for its saintly behavior. The kicker is the ceremonial cannibalism.
Build your vocabulary while protecting yourself from the dastardly ways of literate sinverguenzas.
