    Not only is the use of such a methodology immoral, I've heard there's a teeny weeny chance for the error of a false negative.

    John, if you haven't figured out that Diogenes is angry (some might say bitter) by now... where have you been? But he makes a good point. If you Google St. Lukes Institute plethysmograph, you'll find articles indicating that St. Luke's, an ostensibly Catholic psychiatric treatment center for priests, uses plethysmographs. Which is extremely scandalous.

    An astonishing post for a 'Catholic' forum. Ugly, but astonishing too because so gratuitous and indiscriminate. What is the point? Is it just a joke? In the hope that readers will snicker under their breath tomorrow when they say "And also with you?" Will that help them engage in the liturgy? Taken with the witicism below about blood tests and others like it, is the purpose incrementally to discredit by ridicule all parish priests? Why? Is the writer just angry? It is this forum he discredits.

    This is a good ruling, given that exposing anyone to the images necessary for this "test" is gravely immoral. The government should not be in the business of showing pornography to anyone, never mind measuring a man's arousal while he is forced to view any sort of pornography as a condition of releasing him from prison!
