Nuns Behaving Badly
In what has been called the “tip of the iceberg”
by a lay group that monitors sex abuse in the Roman Catholic Church a
nun has been brought up on criminal charges for allegedly sexually
assaulting two boys multiple times during the 70s. This is hardly an
isolated incident within the Catholic Church, religion, or society in
general. Teachers seem to be getting caught daily with their hands in
the middle school cookie jar. Still, that doesn’t quite encompass
everything that is going on in the wild world of sexual escapades.
For example, STDs are mounting a surge of their own.
Over a million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States
last year alone! And since more common STDs aren’t required to be
reported on nationally (like genital herpes and papillomavirus) the
total number of people affected with STDs every year is probably
somewhere around ten million (my guess).
And then there’s this story about how breasts help prevent food allergies.
At first I thought that this information made the previous stories
about nuns with boys and millions of Americans with rashes make sense.
Maybe, I thought, the boys just wanted to make sure they weren’t going
to get allergic to peanut butter so they went in for some after class
vaccinations. And maybe all those people with bumps and sores were just
trying to prevent an allergic reaction to shell fish. But, sadly, this
is not the case.
Unfortunately breasts only help prevent food allergies if they are
being used to dispense milk into young children. Supposedly mother’s
milk helps boost the kid’s defenses against food allergies. I don’t
think I can believe this study however. Mother’s milk has been said to
give all types of benefits to their children but I haven’t anecdotally
been able to prove this. Most people who were breast fed seem to end up
running a liberal blog that rants against the criminality of the Bush
The next (and last) story should be seen as the clarion call that it
is. For years now gay rights activists have railed against the slippery
slope argument shooting them down as “ridiculous” arguments from the
traditionalists. To me it makes total sense that if we allow gay
marriage there is really no line left whatsoever that can withstand the
mudslide of “progress.” Next we’ll have to let Muslims have multiple
wives and then we’ll have liberals wanting to have a really mixed
family unit (maybe two moms and three dads). Cousins will marry each
other and then people will start marrying animals.
I have to admit that I was wrong because instead of following the
logical progression from gay marriage to polygamy to other stuff it has
turned matrimonial evolution on its head. In India a man has just married a dog.
Fine, it was supposedly done because some people in India are extremely
superstitious and this was just a stunt to rid the man of paralysis but
I still remain steadfast on my prediction: if gay marriage happens then
people will start marrying their dogs in America. BigT
