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.
“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.
