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.

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."

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.
