This is very disturbing!

This is not a parody. This is actually true, and it is sold through the Vatican and vatican stores. Ladies and gentlemen, i present you with the "Hot catholic Priests" 2005 calender. You know, for all of you who, you know, like to get your...umm...religion on! Ewwwwwwwww!!!!! Mental image, mental image. Seriously though, who would buy this? And what were they thinking when they made that thing? Who is their target market exactly? And what the hell is that "Target market" doing with a calender that has catholic priests as models? Oh god, another mental image! Ok, i am no longer thinking about this! That's just wrong!

Wow! How in God's name -- sorry Big Fella! -- did you find that link?

Tres bizarre!

Man, on the one side we got these GQ/Calvin Klein hunko-priests for the Christians and then on the Muslim side we got ... oh hell ... Mutqtada Al-Sadr?!

*whistles*

Sandmonkey, Muslims GOTTA do better than wall-posters of Fat Boy Muqty and Grandpa Al-Sistani!

Is there no Arab la dolce vita?

Hey, I hope Muqty's mosque looks into a dental plan for their bigwigs. Muqty's a couple decades past his last checkup.

BTW, do you think it would be too irreverent to say, "sorry Big Allah"?

I think the Vatican needs a new PR person.

Sandmonkey,

Listen, I was raised a Catholic and was an altar boy who learned the Latin mass. But I can't get over the fact that both Christianity and Islam share a Mafia-style business model: Donate or GO TO HELL. I'd like to see a list of what these two fine businesses -- I mean, holy religions -- share and what separates them. An HONEST assessment.

For example, the Shia Muslims are way into the blood-splattered version of faith. You know, the flaggelation, whipping, real blood and fake blood, just like some of the Christians. I wonder if some of the Shia really dug Mel Gibson's The Passion. For Shia, I imagine, the bloodier the better.

Okay, the Catholics got that bullet-proof Pope Mobile. That's cool. Muslims got that BIG BLACK ROCK they walk around. It's all right, I guess. Don't the Muslims need an update on that, though? It reminds me of the Charlie Brown cartoon at Halloween. What did you get? A rock.

Both Christians and Muslims got Big Books and months of fasting. The books are still important, but the Christians have really slacked off on the fasting.

Anyway, you see what I mean. An acute and perceptive look at these two fine RELIGIO-RETAIL OUTLETS. Oh, I mean, religions, of course.

Hey, maybe we can compare Islam and Christianity with Wal-Mart and Target. Hm.

Check yer spreadsheets and bottom-line, fellas.
