Something to be afraid of...

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 12, 2003

Phil, you may remember that Judy Thomas's articles in the Kansas City Star gave us good reason to believe these administrators are equally trustworthy in sex-ed and in Latin:

The Rev. Harry Morrison entered the seminary in 1969 after graduating from college. Though older than many fellow seminarians, he wasn't any wiser when it came to sex. Several years in the seminary didn't help. "When young men go into seminary, they don't even know what celibacy is," said Morrison, a California priest who has AIDS. "A lot of this technical language, these Latin phrases, all you know is there's something to be afraid of. You don't even know exactly what it means."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
