All those sexually repressed Catholics! Where do I buy stock in a brothel!

Tom Coward,





Rick's Capberet, I can't remember the ticker on the stock.

I expect the priesthood are frustrated that Sydney's otherwise liberal laws place a lower limit on sex worker age.

Silly business practise, you have to know your customer.
Surely she should have hired more vunerable young boys?

Cheap joke, but worth it.

Perhaps my post is not exactly on the topic but it is still strongly associated with a question: How to wipe out religion from this planet before it's too late?

The "Resurrection 2 for 1 timed special", "Mary Magdalin reach around", and "Missionary Tranny Conversion" are always crowd pleasers at these religious events.

Village_Idiot: how about a warning before posting a link to that kind of site? It contains some very disturbing images. If that's supposed to make us sympathise with Hizbollah, you're in the wrong place.

I know that they do the same to Israeli children any chance they get, and do you really expect me to take sides with one bunch of religious nutters against another bunch of religious nutters? Neither side is justified in their beliefs.

I honestly didn't know there were brothels in Sydney. Yet another reason to visit Australia!

.. many of them do it because of their own personal repression," Eros spokesman Robbie Swan told AFP. "And often it's because of religion."


Yeah pimp, whatever. Tabloid coloumn fillers on the website, always a joy to read.

Next topic please...

That conflict has had world wide repercussions. Nothing to do with religion. Not sure what village-idiot's intentions were. I'm certainly suspicious of yours !

Priests and teenagers going to whorehouses! Oh, Mr. Jesus, tell me it ain't so!

But, then, after the priests get through with the teenagers, there might not be much left of the teenagers for the whores to work with.

From what I heard, brothels did "3 times" as much business but the patrons didn't want to use condoms because it's against their faith.

Read VI's post and look at that site he gave again. Then tell me how much you admire religion.

Am I missing something here? Am I on a pro jewish or pro religion site? :)

Hmm, nothing to do with religion? Who are you trying to convince? Take this back or I'll be, using your phraseology, certainly suspicious of your intelligence!

Absolutely. I think those pictures, and the specificity of the website, make the point vividly clear. Thank you.

Thank goodness!! This is the atheist's site. Seems like some our members need to read Hitchens.
I can't speak for all but I don't take religious sides, neither does our Four Horseman. Judaism is just another head of the serpent, as well as Islam and Christanity.

"Obviously we're not promoting it at your traditional Catholic community and it's unlikely we will get priests through."

This line alone forced me stop reading because I was literally laughing until I cried.

Village Idiot: That seems a bit harsh way to wipe out religion. Maybe we could use education or something?

...and panic buttons for the sex workers?!

First Rule-Don't Panic.

Second Rule-Bring A Towel. Preferably a clean one. You're about to enter a brothel.

I can think of nothing more ridiculous than arriving at a brothel carrying a towel, Pattern Seeker!

All Sydney brothels provide freshly-laundered towels for their customers.

I'm not following your line of thinking. The pictures are to illustrate atrocities of religious war, today in the XXI century. Nothing else.

Yes, and take a few classes on critical thinking.

A general comment:
Interesting, when you hit the "Jewish button" suddenly strange and illogical comments pop out even on atheist's discussion forum. Simply sad and ugly.

This site has spent a lot of time exposing the sicknesses of Islam and Christanity and very little on Judaism. Even though this is an Islamic site and is propaganda don't shoot the messenger so to speak. The pictures and quotes speak for themselves. You might keep in mind that these dead children are not "Moslem" children but just children. Sorry if this is a bit off the thread but I feel it needs to be shown again. Special thanks to Village_Idiot.

Well, then, there's no excuse for a hoopy frood not knowing where his towel is. :-)

I wonder if there will also be a surge in the number of vulnerable young catholics molested during the pope's trip.

Personal repression and religion.
That would make me seek out prostitution...........but then so would my genes.........and the fact that I'm a musician...........and I probably had a drink........and a dollar for the condemn machine.

I'm going to pass on looking at the dead children, but I agree with this statement wholeheartedly. I've got a picture of a little Afghan boy eating "skittles" that I look at every time I start thinking that we should just turn this place (Afghanistan)into a glass bowl.
