Say, See, Hear Nothing And Don’t Touch That!


Germany's Catholic bishops, responding to a worldwide Vatican survey, said on Monday that many Church teachings on sexual morality were either unknown to the faithful there or rejected as unrealistic and heartless. They said the survey, drawn up for a synod on possible reforms in October, showed most German Catholics disputed Church bans on birth control and premarital or gay sex and criticized rules barring the divorced from remarriage in church. The results will not be news to many Catholics, especially in affluent Western countries, but the blunt official admission of this wide gap between policy and practice is uncommon and bound to raise pressure on Pope Francis to introduce reforms.



Yes, maybe. But my guess is that the hierarchy's response will be the usual one when the laity tries to tell them something, as demonstrated by these four cheeky chappies.

  1. Um, the 4th chappie just looks for an altar boy, and an empty confessional, in which to get “cheeky”.

    • Erm? The fourth monkey is indicating by the covering of his penis that we should not masturbate. This monkey was omitted from Western copies because we are far too genteel for such things.
