Go to: Real men find Church too girly

Sure, we've kept our leadership predominately male and our theology predominately misogynistic all these centuries. But now you ladies and your lady-decorations have run all the testosterone out of the church. So go bring us some coffee, and smile while you're at it!!

"Cover up, ladies, or it will be YOUR fault when the terrorists attack!"

This is a new aspect of victim-blaming I've not seen explored before.

Go to: The Vatican

I was amused to find that Bill Donohue of the Catholic league had put out a press release calling this episode a "Nazi-like assault."

I thought the episode was well done, and found the story about Sabina chilling. We all know about the pedophile priests worldwide, but what more mundane dangers does the Vatican pose to its host country?

"Unfortunately, we're likely to hear some people saying, 'Okay, we've done this, so why can't we alter the DNA in the nucleus to, say, prevent a predisposition to breast cancer? And if you do it for breast cancer, why can't we do it to weed out a predisposition to baldness?' "

Obviously, the answer is to make sure nobody has the option of removing a genetic disposition for various horrible diseases from their childrens' genomes. Though it might not make the best post-masectomy pep talk to explain to her why decreasing her risk of cancer would have opened the door to eliminating male-pattern baldness in future generations.
