The last place a "single" guy can go to avoid his parents' wrath for not getting married.

Oh wait, just head on up to M(ass)a(choose)etts.

The charm of making! Summoning the dragon's breath! Just had to comment on your tagline--took me awhile to remember where I knew that from... The best Arthur movie yet, Excalibur.

"A possible ruling from the Vatican may bar homosexuals from semenaries."

I believe the Pope has already done this.
I think this was posted yesterday.

The social experiment of allowing homosexuals in the seminaries is finito!

Now for clearing out ALL the sexual perverts!

Degenerative wrist muscle disorder. Also, those that are talented hairstylist, decorators, and florist should go.

reminds me of a Sam Kinnison tape used to have.

This guy walks up to the Pope. Forgive me me father fro I have sinned.

Pope says.." Get out of here, you've got D@#* on your breath. Your stinking up the place."

Gay men have become arrogant. It will be tough not to see the homosexuality in some seminaries.

Rev. Kinison was quite the comedian. His routine acting out the gay necrophiliac story (bribing morticians for access) was sickly hilarious.

Ironic with his pro-drinking and driving that he was killed by a drunk driver. I'm sure he would have had a routine about that too.

Not! Do ask, do tell, do expel. Roman Collars do not belong on poofter necks.

"Not! Do ask, do tell, do expel. Roman Collars do not belong on poofter necks."

OK by me. I doubt they'll succeed, however, in eliminating homosexuality among the priesthood. But, I have nothing to do with the RCC, so it's not my call.

Eliminating its more grotesque manifestations is still a worthy goal.

"Eliminating its more grotesque manifestations is still a worthy goal."

Hence my suggestion of building more closets.

Or like they did in 1983 with the previous seminary visitations and inspections:

Just schedule off-campus "retreats" for all the "Daughters of Trent".
