An important lesson was cemented for me this week: never pass judgement on â€˜clear and shut casesâ€™ because there are always material facts that have been omitted. So Pius has finally come out and admitted to his shenanigans and getting down with some OPP.
Now this blows on two fronts; not only did he break his vow of celibacy (which really is too tall a command for some of our brothers because zvinhu zvinotapira, I cannot tell a lie) but to then compound it by borrowing someone elseâ€™s wife in the process? I guess his reasoning was if you are going to commit a crime you might as well go the whole nine yards, in for a penny in for a pound as some would say. Why do things in half measures?
Still though, I really think that the Catholic Church needs to give up on this celibacy fallacy because it does them no favours, especially when no other denomination makes such heavy demands on its clergy. Are they surprised then that numbers of new recruits are falling? Hell, there is only so far that Palm-ela can take you, and all those little boys who are then inadvertently put on the firing line, all those altar boys who have to dodge those bullets.
So I say bring on the skanky hoes, ngatidyei tese because abstinence is one thing, self-delusion another.
On a personal note, I have made the symbolic gesture of cutting up my credit card to break the cycle of debt. I am tired of the credit card having me by the figurative balls every month and of being beholden to greedy egotistical malingering little paper pushing parasites.
