Covetous Culture

Just Another Day Destroying the Fabric of the Nation

According to Linda Harvey, founder of the Christian right group Mission America, the road to foreclosure is paved with pink tar. Not content to cause the decline of Western Civilization, we are now responsible for the mortgage meltdown. Put that on your resume.

“The mortgage crisis was the sin of temptation being offered by those who relaxed legitimate standards, offered to those without the personal standards to resist,” says Harvey. “This easy-pay physical structure was too good to be true, and appealed to an increasingly covetous segment of our culture. Sexual and material covetousness are usually sin siblings.”

Must make for quite a family gathering at Thanksgiving.

Harvey is one of those right-wing types who like to dwell lovingly on what purports to disgust them. “But let’s take two men, trying unsuccessfully to ‘consummate’ their relationship,” Harvey writes in her foreclosure jeremiad. “It is impossible. Forgive the graphics here, but neither oral nor anal sex, nor mutual masturbation will ever unify them structurally. In fact, actual anatomical damage can occur through anal sex.” (You supply the response. Our head exploded from all the possibilities.)

    I’d like a day to destroy the fabric of those boys’ underwear!

    That just means that she has never seen anybody do it right.

    Sorry, one more thing to add. If “Causing Damage” is her way of proving that something shouldn’t be done, then I would like to point out that during childbirth the vagina often tears in ragged, difficult to stitch sections. This is why epesiotomies can be so common, easier to cut it and sew the straight cut laters.

    Not to mention the fact that a doctor can easily see if a woman has had…shall we say “Enthusiastic” sex recently by vaginal tearing, brusing, redness etc…

    So…nice try, but NEXT!

    She is just jealous that she has never been properly damaged!!

  • Ron in LA

    I want to know who that hot blond guy in the photo is! ;-)

    @Cam: I hadn’t thought about it, but you’re right. Though these days doctors are tending towards not doing episiotomies because the natural tears are actually easier to repair. However, there’s that tearing issue. So if that’s a criteria, we should all just be celibate, whether we’re gay or straight.

    @mrbill: LOL Ikr!

  • confusion

    Confused at the unrelated pic…!

    I bet’cha more houses were foreclosed on “Prosperity Christians” who were told that Jesus wanted them to live in Mc Mansions while earning a MickeyD type salary.

    Brigitte Nielsen is looking faaaaaaaaaabulous

  • Yaël

    Ms. Harvey managed to slip forclosures and gay sex into one conversation without providing a causal link. Not much logic there, really.

    I wanna scream “But what about the lesbians’ sex????” but I won’t because I am a gentleman.

  • Athena

    -bursts out laughing-

    Oh, she makes it too easy, she really does… Are we absolutely certain that Ms. (Mrs.?) Harvey isn’t a refined sort of subspecies of internet troll…?

  • Kai

    I’d love to know who the dark-haired guy is!
