Let us pray



Is it the ultimate in devotion or sacrilige to piss on the virgin? Maybe my Catholic friends can enlighten me.

Oh. My. God!!! No, I couldn't do it ... Speechless, dumbfounded. And almost spewed my coffee on the computer screen :-)

I went back through my history to see if I could find a location for these, but the site where I found them doesn't give one. It does have them titled "Clare" rather than "Mary" so I'm guessing it's a Franciscan monastery. But now that is a whole different kind of creepy.

Strikes me more as something you would find in some kind of ironic, post-everything dance club.

Actually, I'm reminded of a gay bar in OK City (yes, they have them) called Free Spirit. It was in a deconsecrated Episcopal Church which always added a little extra frisson.

Yeah, you two are probably right. It's the dance club in the old church thing. Well, less creepy, but maybe less interesting. I was kind of enjoying imagining it in a St. Clare Convent (or whatever they call themselves). I imagined the nuns putting them in the one male restroom for the pleasure of watching the faces of the men who emerged.

Welcome, Max. And I must say, you have the best scriptural tag line I think I've seen on a blog!

They are strangely beautiful, emphasis on the "strange."
