  1. Interesting but I have one issue with it..

    Box “Are you doing it solely for procreative purposes?” We are past the baby bearing years, so since I must answer “no” to this question, should my husband & I in our mid-fifties stop having sex? I think not.

    Looks like a box is missing!

  2. I’d be very careful about this Fr Bosco very careful indeed.

    This is designed to mock healthy, life giving fruitful relationships and promote self indulgent, self worshiping, hedonistic ones.

    2 Timothy 3

    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

  3. When I took “Protestant Reformation” as an undergraduate, we were given a flow chart very similar to this one (but much more complicated) showing the rules as given in medieval penitentials (i.e. handbooks for priests hearing annual pre-Easter confessions). Among the questions were, “Is it Wednesday? STOP! SIN!” “Is it Friday? STOP! SIN!” “Are you naked? STOP! SIN!” If you made it through all 200 questions, the last box said, “All right, go ahead. Just try not to enjoy yourself.”

    My own doctoral research (legitimate, honest!) led me to a seventh-century penitential that instructs the priest to ask married women, “Have you taken your husband’s semen, baked a cake with it, and eaten it?” (A pagan fertility practice, I think…) Not exactly edifying reading material for the clergy — especially celibate clergy!

  4. Where have you been Andrei? I am surprised that you just show up now and have refrained from making any commentary about all of Peter’s shit on this blog! 😉

    I love it – especially the political overtones. It is good to be reminded via humour how we have warped cultural imperatives into ageless divine edicts.

  6. Leave it to Beaver, of course, took on new meaning at the Rugby World Cup final. Not the double entendre intended in the flow chart, but full of significant religious implications for kiwis…
