“Priests don’t like to say raped--they prefer misdeed,
inappropriate touching, or a mistake. That is insulting.
I am not a mistake.”--Charles L. Bailey, Jr.
from THE SHADOW OF THE CROSS.
What does Michael Jackson
& Wal-Mart have in common? Little
boys underwear half off.
I saw a haunting piece on CNN this morning, all about how the
American military has to turn a blind eye to the Afghan generals,
politicians, & religious leaders who all have sex slave young boy
companions. One prominent general said, “It is the way of things.
I could not compete with the others if I did not have a boy”. I must
submit that sometimes for Westerners, the heart makes the
simplest things so damn complicated--how the reality of things
allows Afghan leaders to go all Kite Runner & shit & we are expected
to respond like a muzzled declawed grizzly or a lioness with
belladonna in her eyes; so that bold child rape can be excused as
some kind of acceptable Muslim socialization, that we must not tamper
with the sick, perverted Afghan customs for fear that we might disrupt
our fragile relationships with the men in power? For Christ’s sake, two
American sergeants were booted out of the Army for assaulting an
Afghan officer who was bragging about having sex with his boy. Have we
all gone insane?
Personally, the sordid fact that there are Catholic cardinals & bishops
who keep harems of alter boys dampens my enthusiasm for the
lauded arrival of Pope Francis at the White House today. Can you
image Obama in the Lincoln Room saying, “Welcome to America,
Frankie. Tell me though, what are your views on pedophile priests--
did you ever bugger young boys on your way up?” It throws a
sickening shade like shadow dancers, that nauseating image of
young Afghan boys shaking their pre-adolescent butts for those
old men, who in my book are hardly a cut above those who practice
bestiality with farm animals, chickens, & dogs.
When I look at my beautiful grandchildren & think about all those
child pornographers & twisted demented predators who want to have
sex with them, who tweet & text to our children, I cum every time I
look at those craved images of you”, I get a little crazy, wanting to
shoot eggs with guns, or personally perform the rites of castration
that will swell the ranks of eunuchs. I don’t care that this moral stigma
has been with mankind throughout recorded history, damn it, we need
stand our ground on this issue--even though our intervention
will do about as much good as it does to complain of the
Muslim treatment of women.
The rape of young boys
is unacceptable, within the churchor any other society.
