Priest Pleads Guilty to Making Date-Rape Drug.

DAVENPORT, Iowa (Reuters) – A 31-year-old Roman Catholic priest pleaded guilty on Wednesday to conspiring with five other men to manufacture and distribute the illegal drug commonly known as the “date-rape drug.”

At the time of Windy’s arrest, prosecutors said he was apparently driven by greed after witnessing the immense profits available from the drug’s sale.

I suppose there isn’t really a commandment that says “Thou Shalt Not Encourage Thy Neighbor To Date Rape.” With such fine, upstanding examples of how the Ten Commandments instills moral integrity in men of the clergy, it’s no wonder the Christian Right wants to plaster the TCs all over every court room, but perhaps they’d be more effective by hanging them in their local churches first.

  1. Hanging the misbehaving members of the clergy sounds like a good idea to me. So does drying out their skins and plastering them inside court rooms.

    With concentric rings stragetically applied. And a bucket of darts nearby.

  2. And an excellent rant it is too! I’ve been debating hitting the topic of the Ten Commandments in a bigger way here on my blog given the number of lawsuits currently happening around the country over them. A lot of communities are finding their displays being challenged lately, and the courts are ruling that they have to be moved or taken down. I came across an excellent disection of the TCs the other day which focused on their original meanings and not the interpretations most folks use today that I meant to link to, but I’ve since forgotten where I saw them. Hate it when I do that. I’ll have to break down and search for it again soon.

  3. Whenever I think of religion, I can’t help but think of a bunch of frogs in a bowl.  When one frog tries to climb out, all the other frogs pull her back in!

    As it is with religion- folks who are figuring out what the meaning of certain texts are in our lives and what it meant to people in the time of its conception are two entirely different things.

    Case in point: “be fruitful and multiply.”  Okay, we’ve multiplied.  With over 6 billion people in the world (or is that 600 billion?), we’re now threatening our very existence on the planet and rendering ourselves extinct.  However, at the conception of Western religion, they needed people.  Many people- just to make ends meet.

    I think the thing that angers me the most is that we are a country that is supposed to have freedom of religion, which can also be interpreted to mean freedom from religion, yet the religious right wants so badly for us to be a Christian country.  And they’re winning.  (For now.)  It’s pissing me off.

    And they’re also completely missing the point of Christianity.  Oh, could I go on about this.

    But I won’t…

  5. His point is, he’s trying to sell his book here. He’s another one of those who can explain life’s greatest mysteries to us (for a price).

    Worship his vast intellect and marketing skills or look the fool.
