In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.

As a straight man, Pussy Riot sounds like something I want to be a part of.

The Pope is a well known pedo so we know why he doesn't like pussy riots.

binturong: FTAC: "I'm an athiest. But in this case I agree with the Pope. There's no excuse for Pussy Riot to desecrate a church. One of the three was released from prison becasue she left before the desecration. The other two will serve their two year sentence. Pussy Riot had already publicly protested Putin. No need to do what they did in a church.

Unless that church politically supports a corrupt government. Then it's perfectly valid.

Remind me again why sitting around in an expensive room pretending to have a psychic dialogue with a dead Jewish space alien should be a protected activity?

This just in, the Catholic Church favors the integrity of a physical building over the well-being of human beings (well they're just filthy women you know...).

hdhale: SkunkWerks: reillan: To see a children as having sexual parts is a bit ... well, along the lines of your post.

Everyone knows children are completely asexual until the magical age of thirteen. Down to the very second they slid from their mother thirteen turns of the seasons ago, in fact. One second later and Vaginas turn into Pussies.

True story.

When the plumbing starts to work varies from individual to individual, but even after the plumbing starts to work and things "feel good", that's not the same thing as someone being ready for an adult relationship. Emotional maturity comes much later (anywhere from 15 up) and varies between individuals.

I love and I want you to be happy =/= I'm in love you and I want sex

This. Not every field that has grass on it is ready to host the World Series. :)

/and the last girl I went out with was definitely hosting 29 teams a year.

The last pope was a revolutionary freedom fighter who risked his own life to help bring liberty to those suffering under the yolk of oppression in Eastern Europe. This pope isn't fit to lick the last one's boots.

Because People in power are Stupid: I don't actually consider children as having "Pussies" perhaps vaginas when appropriate -it is interesting that you do, though.

That's an interesting point. I once met a lady at a local park - it was early in the day on a weekday, and she was the only one there. Her daughters, my guess on their ages would be 3, 7, and 10, were all playing in the splashpad area nude. I was coming in to check on the grills, as a couple of my friends had the day off and we were going to do some grilling later, and of course when she saw me she was worried that I would think her kids were inappropriate. I immediately noticed her French accent, and I told her I was a nudist and that her kids didn't bother me. So we struck up a conversation.

During the course of it, she commented to me that she found it strange that we would require children to wear bathing suits in the US. Her reason was that bathing suits are supposed to cover those parts of the body that are sexual. To see a children as having sexual parts is a bit ... well, along the lines of your post. I thought it was a really good point.

That statement isn't entirely congruous as pedophiles can favor either sex depending on their own preferences.

It would be better to classify him as homosexual pedophile, for accuracy.

However, we did get your point as being such.

EZ Writer: Little Boy Riot on the other hand...

/Big fan

Gotta put a uniform on them first. Can't think of the organization, but they were kinda like the German boy scouts back in the '30s amd '40s. Something Youth?
