  1. Jerry w says:

    Why should the pope get to decree things about sex?

    I thought it was “If you don’t play the game, you don’t make the rules”.

  2. kiyaroru says:

    I just love Benny!
    He is such a dickhead!
    He’s 80 years old and it seems like he has had no contact whatsoever with the real world.

  3. ost says:

    Great! I’m Italian and atheist, can please some civil nation INVADE us so we can kick that idiot(s) out of our beautiful Rome? Thank you.

  4. John The Geologist says:

    You have to understand that the top dog catlicks in the Vatican told the Africans that HIV/AIDS is actually caused by condoms as the pharma companies want to extirminate the population of Africa. Plenty of moslems in Africa agree with them.

    (And there was me thinking they wanted to keep them alive to sell them drugs. How silly can you get.)

    AND – catlick undercover agents puncture every 100th condom with a pin to ensure the survival of the human race.

    AND – where in the bible does it say “thou shalt not use rubber johnnies” ?

    AND – it is obviously better to go up to dog or aller unsullied by the use of contraceptives.

  5. mateo-argentino says:

    Leviticus 1:5

    and Moses saw the eleventh commandent (thou shalt not use rubber johnnies), and thought it was REALLY stupid, so he said there was only ten of them.

  6. Submoron says:

    Ost, Is that the whole crowd or just the German Shepherd? The point of banning condoms is that you mustn’t do sex for pleasure… only making babies is allowed, that’s why some of Mo’s followers perform clitorectomies even though the Koran says nothing about them.

  7. JMo says:

    All of the guilt none of the pleasure…..sounds like hell to me….

  8. Colonel Leisure says:

    Perfect analogy.

  9. Postman says:

    This one deserves a rimshot. Excellent.

  10. grouchy-one says:

    The pope has fangs!!! I suspected as much.

  11. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Just think how much would have to change before the pope et al. were acting in the best interests of all of humanity and the life we share this planet with.

    How mixed up is it when the missionaries claim they are the ones saving the ignorant savages? The phrase should have been liars, damned liars and priests.


    I see now why John has been falling out of favour as a baby name. I’ve never heard that particular expression before.

  12. Dick M says:

    If the pope’s son would just come forth and identify himself, then we might have reason to think that Bennie is qualified to speak about sex and condoms. Just where do these putative celibates garner their expertise on this subject?

  13. Ms. Anne Thrope says:

    Silly religious man, meat left out for a week does NOT spontaneously generate maggots. I thought we figured that out already!

  14. Felix says:

    Catholic logic goes like this: It’s sad, but my hands are clean, as I’ve told them to be faithful and not have sex otherwise. But, as they obviously don’t listen, I wont bother to tell them to use condoms when they have sex, as they definitely won’t listen to that either. So I might as well tell them it’s a sin. Remember where I said they’re not listening? My hospitals care for them when they’re dying, everything else is their own responsibility. Sad. But I like them and extend my hand in friendship.

  15. Eyeoffaith says:

    I like the vampire fangs on the picture of the Pope. A nice touch πŸ™‚

  16. Amanda says:

    I wrote about this same thing today, though not nearly as funny.

    I think the pope looks more like Peter Lorre than a vampire.

  17. Daoloth says:

    I think it was Bernard Shaw who described celibacy as the weirdest perversion of all. Whoever it was- it is amazing how this bunch of cassocked apes get listened to on the subject of sex.
    BTW- a footnote to Submoron- Clitorerdectomies are very briefly mentioned by Mohammed:
    “[A] woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. Muhammad said to her, ‘Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’ This passage is in dispute. Umm ‘Atiyyah; Abu Dawud, al-Bayhaq (2007)
    Less widely known- clitoredectomies were performed routinely on 1000s of women in the UK up until a sacndal involving Isaac Baker-Brown in the 19th Century- the scandal was that he publicised the practice, not that he did it.
    We are a weird weird species.

  18. Ish says:

    Only my magic will save you!

    Ha ha ha, brilliant.

    Here’s the Daily Mash’s take on it

  19. Slugsie says:

    I love the cartoon, spot on! πŸ™‚

  20. Submoron says:

    Daoloth, Thanks; Is that Koran or Hadith? I knew that this op. was performed in Victorian times (see Alisdair Gray’s “Poor Things” for a fictional discussion) and I believe that the Kikuyu used to do it before they had much contact with the non-African cultures. As to weirdness, I’ve read The Golden Bough and that’s crammed with lunacy!

  21. Dammit, everyone uses a Mac these days.

  22. Ish says:

    Forget fangs, check out this real picture of the pope, says it all really

  23. mel says:

    I thought Mo would be in favour of male circumcision against the spread of this disease. It is truly the way of the prophet: mutilation for the betterment of the human condition.

  24. This is what is so great about editorial cartoonists; the ability to sum up a complex issue with just a few words and images with incredible wisdom.

    All I can say is thanks.

  25. Flea says:

    “Only my magic will save you” Love it!

  26. […] I’m not talking about aids, I’m talking about catholicism. […]

  27. ComradePorkie says:

    After a long and depressing day, Jesus and Mo have once again really cheered me up.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time!

  28. […] También es recomendable: AIDS. […]

  29. It is amazing that a man who has never had sex in his life is allowed to tell others who is allowed to have sex and who is not.

  30. fenchurch says:

    Do child-raping priests use condoms when they sexually assault their victims? Or would that be plain WRONG in their moral code (father, forgive me).

  31. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Fenchurch, “Do child-raping priests use condoms when they sexually assault their victims? ”

    Yes. But only since those damned scientists invented dna profiling.

    Leviticus 1:5

    and Moses saw the eleventh commandent (thou shalt not use rubber johnnies), and thought it was REALLY stupid, so he said there was only ten of them.
    They were more on the 3rd tablet that Moses dropped.

    “Here are the 15 10 commandments the Lord our God has given us.”
