Germany's biggest Catholic-owned publishing house has been rocked by disclosures that it has been selling thousands of pornographic novels with titles such as Sluts Boarding School and Lawyer's Whore with the full assent of the country's leading bishops.

The fundie haters never sleep.
That was always reserved for us independent Baptists.
If you think the original poster is Catholic, I have a bridge for sale.
Marriott stopped the money-making practice around the time Romney declared his candidacy.
If I'm confused, I'll listen.
I’m not Catholic, but can you explain your comment #1?
If you really meant to call the Catholic Church the whore of rome, I’m hitting abuse.
Or you can do it yourself.
The Great whore of Anabaptistville, eh?
Any relation to the “Lawyer’s Whore”?
(Some may call that is a bit redundant).
Look for my upcoming title, “Lawyer’s Whore Does Rome, Constantinople and Geneva, aka Rochelle Rochelle, A Young Girl’s Erotic Journey from Moscow to Minsk.”
This article points out how the bishops got greedy and allowed Weltbild in 1998 (actually the question of how much actual control the bishop's have is unanswered) to merge with other publishing houses that sold such magazines
Was this stupid of the bishops? Yes. What the heck is a religious publishing house doing getting involved in mergers? And if it got involved in a "merger" doesn't that mean that the stock and ownership was diluted?
too many questions
In answer to your question: I was just joking Larry, don't "abuse" me. The Catholic "universal" church which killed my Christ following ancestors down through the ages should not be confused with the Great Whore of Rome that counterfeit church that is drunk on the blood of the saints down through the ages. Obviously that must refer to some other large church organization based in Rome, but I can see how you could make the mistake. ;)
On a side note I led my son in a prayer for Christ's salvation on what is now yesterday. And he is now praying for the soul of his toddler brother, and Kindergarten classmates.
So does Victoria Secret...
“But Bernhard Müller, editor of the Catholic magazine PUR, dismissed the clerics’ reaction as grossly hypocritical. He alleged that the pornography scandal at Weltbild had been going on for at least a decade with the Church's full knowledge. Mr Müller said that in 2008, a group of concerned Catholics had sent bishops a 70-page document containing irrefutable evidence that Weltbild published books that promoted pornography, Satanism and magic. They demanded that the publisher withdraw the titles.”
Is there a pattern here?
Sluts Boarding School and Lawyer’s Whore are up for Pullitzers. ;’) Thanks ME-262.
Point well made. Kudos. Sinners abound in all denominations.
Most know that since Vatican II that the Catholic Church isn’t catholic anymore.
“killed many of my saintly ancestors and actively persecuted “ — so too did Lutherans and Calvinists. And, how many of your “ancestors” believed in Unitarian etc. views as they progressed?
And of course you mean the Whore of Rome, Georgia.
That would be the hard-copies....not the DVDs.
Rome is not Germany, Germany is not Rome, and the German bishops and German church are hardly a paragon of obedience to Rome, for the most part.
I find this hard to believe.
Why did you have to bring Bertha into this argument?
"...the board, in what appears to be a transparent attempt to boost Mitt's chances in 2012, has decided to drop porn from its new properties, and intends to phase out porn in existing hotels starting in 2013. That's a convenient date if Romney fails in his White House bid, the board can phase it right back in."
-- Marriott board helps fellow Mormon Romney -- gives up porn
Are you sure he wasn’t referring to those folks living on the bay separating New Brunswick from Nova Scotia? I’ve always hated them (for living in such a really neat place).
The Bible tells you to go to Church. Obviously you skipped that as well as many other parts of Scripture.
By the way genius, the Vatican isn't in Rome. All of those killers in your past apparently burned all of your maps, atlases, globes and geography books in addition to slaughtering your ancestors.
I said "I try to stick to the Bible and do not belong to any particular denomination."
You said "The Bible tells you to go to Church. Obviously you skipped that as well as many other parts of Scripture."
Is it that your reading comprehension is low, or are you prone to foolishly go off on people? I happen to regularly attend a church, which just like myself, does not belong to any particular denomination.
You said "By the way genius, the Vatican isn't in Rome."
The encyclopedia says "Vatican City is a landlocked sovereign city-state whose territory consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome, Italy."
I'm glad you could acknowledged my genius and put forth your ignorance all within a single statement. It was both kind and concise of you. Nitpicking is best when you save it for actual mistakes.
Perhaps you could first inform the folks in the Vatican of their error. It would seem the SEE OF ROME (AKA the Catholic Church) might need your maps, atlases, globes and geography books. Perhaps you agree with me that the pope should not be claiming the title of "Bishop of Rome"? And the Vatican's website should stop calling that poor lost man the "Roman pontiff". Doesn't he know the Vatican isn't in Rome?
Ah Cunningham, You tickle me with your foolish banter.
Pornographic novels? What? They’re filled with quotations of “(o)(o)”? That’s the dumbest hype I’ve ever heard of.
