As I seem to be saying a little too regularly for comfort: My apologies again for the downtime in blogging, which is (as always) attributable to a lack of motivation and some mild sleep deprivation. And so – also as always – here’s a quick little something to chew on: Catholic League chief pearl-clutcher Bill Donohue has the vapors over this New York Times piece on the rising popularity of BDSM practices:
NYT has a great story on perverts today in the Style section. Electricity, fire, knives, ropes, chains--all are used for sex. Not kidding!!!— Catholic League (@CatholicLeague) February 28, 2013
“ZOMG, a number of consenting adults do things on their own time and dime behind closed doors that sound really weird and disturbing to a crusty old prude like me, the freaks!!!”
Of course, that’s not even mentioning the impressive amounts of irony on display here, considering this squawk of puritanical protest comes from a man who devotes himself to the passionate defense of a flamboyantly creepy cult and whose best-known export is the continual defense of almost any clergyman caught committing child sexual abuse and the officials who do their best to cover it all up. Forget glass houses; they can see this guy’s glass palace from space.
