Okay, I appreciate that some of you are interested in discussing the Church's attitude toward general sexuality, and I've given my opinions by which I continue to stand. However, that whole issue is really beside the point I wanted to address to this topic. In a nutshell, my point is that the church stigmatizes certain forms of sexuality and that people so stigmatized will be driven to purify themselves through services to the Church. This makes the priesthood particularly enticing to them, the more so the more guilty they feel, and because of this we can expect the Vatican to house an abnormally large number of sexual outcasts. Everything else I've mentioned is important, but it really isn't the main point.
*laughs* It was a typo, honestly. If I wanted to insult you, I could have been more creative than that, and it would never occur to me to call you frigid, the punibility of it notwithstanding.Originally Posted by Ivy
