The convergence of American and Islamic Idio-fundamentalism continues unabated, with their continuing primary concern being the control over female bodies by men: on the one hand, we have the 'gay marriage' debate, which is really just a matter of saying "men should own women, because that's what god wants", and on the other hand, we have moronic catfood justifications of rape.

The great thing about being a Perfect Master is it seemed you really didn't need any special skills, except perhaps plumpness and sitting still . I didn't have either of those traits a
By Tom Lichtenberg – November 07, 2006a play in no acts: man of the cloth, staunchly anti-gay, anti-drugs, anti-you-name-it, periodically checks into a downtown hotel to have a 'private retreat', where he can write little books and sermons about how jesus was anti-gay, anti-drugs, and anti-you-name-it. man of the cloth gets bored, gets a little lonely, gets to thinking about how nice it would be to get high and have sex with a male hooker. aaahhh. that was good. afterwards he goes home to his little miss perfect submissive female and his well groomed kids and his wannabelieve congregation and tells them how bad everything is - and he should know. in fact, he's gonna do a little more research on all those very bad things.
