Blessed Virgin Mary in Playboy???

Every year I hear about Christmas catalogues that go over the line with sexual images. I have never figured out why they do this. I don’t personally know of anybody who bought from any of these stores because of the half-naked anorexic woman or the male models who look like they cam out of a crack house. But I guess I’m just not artistic enough to understand.

But Hugh Hefner is!! The pervert from Playboy decided to outdo the bulimic supermodels and heroin addicts in other catalogues. He was going to depict the Virgin Mary posing naked for the Christmas edition of his magazine. I’ve always known Mr. Hefner was a pervert and a polygamist (see Editor’s note at bottom), but this is just wrong.

I guess the irony of the story is that he decided to make it the Christmas edition of Playboy in Mexico! In case he didn’t know, Mexican Catholics have a special devotion to Our Lady.

I would love to hear of Mexican churches and communities burning piles and piles of this magazine. They need to let Mr. Hefner know that nudity is bad enough, but depicting Our Lady like this is taking things way too far.

Pray for Hefner and the end of pornography.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Hefner has dated numerous women at one time, but he only “marries” one at a time. He was recently dating three women. One of them was 19 years old, the other two being twin sisters.

If “They” Are the Enemy, Call Me a “Sympathizer.”

Iraqi Children Caught in the Fog of War

Iraqi Children Caught in the Fog of War

Block your ears from the cries of mothers and children seeing streets streaming with the blood of their loved ones. Force yourself to ignore the screams of anguish from the elderly who watch their dreams breathe their last breath. Continue to convince yourself that all is well so long as it is happening to those people over there. Better “over there” to “those people” than “over here” to “us,” right?

The Great Commission has devolved into a crusade for secular democracy. Worst of all may be that many have forgetten that these two are not one and the same. But never mind the inherent conflict between this crusade and the reality of Original Sin. Push aside all questions about means and ends. Such serious considerations tends to confuse simple masses and inevitably muddles up what the rulers see as a crystal clear mandate

Plowshares are hammered into swords. Religious leaders bless the lambs of their fold as they trade in their fleece for the coarse hair of of the pack they wish to join. But little Johnny-Q and Sally Sue look so strong, so brave… so American.

Close your eyes, bid them farewell, and praise Caesar for his benevolence. Refuse to second guess, repudiate all reason, and deem repugnant any and all who call for the return of Johnny-Q and Sally Sue, who pray for casting off of military garb, who envision the day when swords are turned into plowshares, and who dare to shed a tear for the lives and dreams lost in the fog of war… especially if it is one of them over there.

Mises: Religion and Economics
