I’ve had my issues with the Catholic church for some time now but they’ve made it clear in their latest “instruction” they don’t want me, either. I guess this is the end of our rocky relationship. (Note to self: Find a more compassionate religious faith).
So, dear readers, in case you haven’t seen the headlines, the Vatican has decided that “babies should be conceived only through intercourse by a married couple.”

RE: Your “Instructions”
Yeah, we tried it your way. A LOT. In fact it kind of pissed me off that God didn’t see fit to follow through on his end of the bargain. I’ve had more than a few words with him about said subject. He gave us sex organs and we used ’em as instructed, and what did we get? Nada. Nothing. Not even a positive pregnancy test.
You think we WANTED to go the outside the bedroom in search of conception? Uh. Hardly.
As if I needed help to feel bad about my infertile state and how far we had to go to try to create another Catholic child for the flock! I know you excel at the whole guilt thing, but really, is it necessary to make your infertile children — those who already feel super crappy about having to rely on a team of experts to “go forth and multiply” — feel condemned as “unethical, immoral?”
