I loved the ads in this link.

Hey, here's an idea Catholic church, why not let your priests get married and try ordaining women? (they still don't ordain women, do they?)

All the hep cats are into it, man.

If i had a priest that was as hot as the pierced tattooed guy, I'd be at mass and confession every week.

"Father forgive me for I have sinned. I've been a very bad bad boy this week. How may I service you as penance for my sins?"

I wonder when they'll make it a sin to read Latin?

Oh, wait, they already tried that ...

Frankly, I'm a lot more worried about the guys who actually want to live a life of poverty and celibacy. That's not normal.

This Just In: Fire - Hot! Mexico - Full of Mexicans! Celibacy and Poverty - Tough Sell!

Who knew?!

One suspects the real reason for the Church's opposition to increased tolerance of homosexuality is how it significantly reduces their recruit pool.

You forgot obedience: poverty, chastity and obedience. I was a priest and discovered I wasn't good at any of them. I left.

Thanks, Dan and Reggie. I needed that laugh.
