“Virgin No. 9: It was a garlic-and-onion pizza. Why?”

The Pope has been talking about the sex abuse scandal. The Saints down in Texas like their lovin’ too. And like Lee, a blogger from down under, I’ve wondered about the 72 virgins promised (or so I’m told) to Islamic martyrs.

Virgins“Are they people, real people? I mean with thoughts and feelings of their own? If yes, then how can it be justified that they are given to someone else as slaves, and sex slaves to boot? And are they ‘one shot wonders’, discarded once their virginity is no more? If they are not real people, what are they? Zombies? Inflatable dolls?”

The post includes Steve Martin’s amusing take on this heavenly reward. Lee calls his blog Hen Buddism and Other Religions.

  1. I’ve been thinking about the photo in the post above. I cropped it some so you can’t see all the “virgins.” I didn’t count but assume there are 72 ladies in the photo.
    Think how hard that shot must have been been to get.
    “Uh, the blonde lady near the back on the right… no, not you… behind you and to left… yes, mam, you… I can still see your bush. Would move your leg just a little… perfect.
    It must have taken hours to take the photograph.

  2. Do you think this “Yearning for Zion” “crack down” on the “eve” of the Popes visit is just a coincidence? I don’t know.
