"Officials in Poland are in an uproar over photos showing a group of young teens licking cream off a priest's knees."

"The school said the initiation ritual was a long-standing tradition at the school, and no one had ever complained about it before."

Yeah, there is a magic fairy up in the sky, and he wants Catholic Priests running the show. Who is dumb enough to believe this?

Nonapod said...

The headline alone will be the entire joke for Seth Meyers, Conan O'Brien, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and at least a dozen others.

Scott said...

Is it cream or "cream"?

EDH said...

What's with the stick?

And in the second photo, is that a Pants Tent?

Makes one ask: "What's going on?"

ricpic said...

If it was cream from a creamsicle that's all right.

Mmmm...creamsicles.

Palladian said...

Funny, the photographs in the article are exactly what I imagined an evening at Andy R's house is like.

@Andy R
Don't forget that atheists killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. But at least they didn't believe in God.

And be sure to take your message to Dearborn MI, where being gay is an insult to Islam, you h8r.

I don't think the headline can be improved on. No comment.

He has a hard on in the 4th picture.

This is not helpful, but, hey, it's girls, too.

The people smart enough not to believe in Father Karl, Uncle Joe, and Chairman Mao.

So I guess that makes Hatman dumber than dumb.

... That's just gross.

When we were little kids and got together with our cousins, we would gang up on our aunt Bee and tickle her knees.

EDH said...

Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on

And if you want to, well you can cream on me

bagoh20 said...

Andy would be shoving through the queue like the priest was selling Iphones.

Dear Jesus, hear my prayer...

We're going to have to protect this SOB from his own stupidity against the Jihadis.

Why have you placed the burden of this piece of shit upon us?

EDH said...

And in the second photo, is that a Pants Tent I see?

Pogo said...

Now I want to know what the "long tradition" of doing this was supposed to be about.

WTF kind of custom is that?

Insert new Polish joke here . . .

It's fucking Europeans being weird. The cat makeup is a clue. In 1642, the town priest was whipping cream for some town celebration because the local women were overcome with the plague. He fell into the copper vat with his knees, and the cats all ran and licked it off. That town was spared--only 20% of the people died. So now they re-enact i the event with kids as the cats.

Or some such similar bullshit.

It's a Euro thing.

bagoh20 said...

I'd love to go back to the time when such a thing could actually be innocent. Seriously there was a time and it seems impossible now that such a time ever was. When I was those kids' age, I would never consider that sexual, and neither would anyone else. We have become a sick society.

john said...

I guess kissing his ring would be OK.

MadisonMan said...

Well come on! No one has ever complained before!! What's the big fuss?

@Darrell, if that's the reason for the celebration, it makes a little more sense. But times have changed. Sadly.

I can hear him saying, "That's my story and I'm sticking to it."

Darrell said...

Or maybe it was smallpox, and the people that licked the cream got the cowpox immunity that saved their lives.

Darrell said...

I think people in the town should be able to say if the ceremony was being held for years. Why didn't reporters ask? I see no quotes or anything approaching balance.

Kevin said...

Yeah I'm with Darrell on this one. It looks horrific, but it looks so horrific that nobody could possibly defend it--if it was what it looks like. But they seem to have no problems with people taking pictures of it. I'm waiting for more information.

It seems like if you're going to go this far on the perv scale you're better off doing it smaller, less public scale and with actual, you know, sex. So this really may have another reason to it. It should still be stopped, I'm just that I am sure there is more to this than appears at first glance.

Shouting Thomas said...

Perhaps they should just skip to the chase and hold a Gay Pride parade instead.

Chip Ahoy said...

Yes times have changed. You noticed the can of whipped cream on the arm of the chair. In the good old days cream was hand whipped with a wire whisk. And it's flavored with sugar and a little vanilla extract, the whipped cream is, not the whisk.

You can find small towns all over Europe that have strange local ceremonies and re-enactments--things that don't make sense until you hear the story/legend. It makes sense with their 1000+ year histories.

Hey, I even know of a left-leaning American girl that saw a celebration marking that town's local miracle which consisted of an old woman who was probably a nun, receiving Holy Communion on her deathbed. A couple of days later when the priest was able to return, he went to give her Communion again--and saw to his amazement that the Host from two-days prior was perfectly intact--like it was in his Chalice before he distributed it. That snarky leftie girl drew a sketch depicting the event as if the nun was a cat coughing up a hairball.
Circle of life--Italian nun, Polish cat. And now we are all together here. What are the odds?

It's certainly a better belief than the bitter, joyless nihilism of a Hat who thinks we blink into existence for a fraction of eternity and then vanish into the void.

Catholic priests? Sure, there are bad apples. Always were, always will be. But why don't you check out the percentage rates of sex abuse in government schools sometime before beclowning yourself.

Dumb? You haven't the brainpower to outthink leftist idiocy, much less go brain-to-brain with Pope Benedict.

gerry said...

Is his name Allah? Muhammad?

gerry said...

Very strange.

madAsHell said...

It was all fun, and games until someone took a picture.

Erika said...

No one interviewed the parents of these kids?

These rituals exist for a reason.
Explore the reason they might have come to be.
Before rejecting them out of hand as Andy does.

Some kind of bonding agent?

For all you latter-day bluenoses, just two words: lactose intolerance

YoungHegelian said...

It really is amazing how weirded out supposedly "tolerant" people (e.g. Andy) get when really faced with the true multiplicity of human experience.

This story is, of course, in the British paper no doubt as another example of RC perversity -- historically always a seller in the British mind. But, it's clearly just a horrible piece of reporting --- lurid pictures & nothing else. Is this a "public" event? Who took the photos? No parents interviewed (to echo Erika)? Did anyone interview the priests or kids? I mean, as sexual acts go, this seems to be an awful lot of work for not much.

Other cultures do strange things, you know. It was standard practice in many Mediterranean cultures until not too long ago for the mother of the bride to parade the blood-stained wedding night sheet through the village so that the world would know her daughter was an honorable virgin.

Of course, that's disgusting. But leather fairies with their buttocks exposed in chaps and sucking on each others nipples in Gay Pride Day parade is just right as rain. Or, am I missing something?

Yeah, where could that tradition possibly have come from? You know, often traditions are toned-down versions of activities that might not be deemed, um, acceptable nowadays. You don't suppose this has anything to do with what priests are best-known for today, do you? Nah, couldn't be....

bgates said...

Andrew, you've mentioned before that you work with progressive Christians. It can't be good for you to hide your contempt for them until you get here. I encourage you to tell them directly how stupid you think they are.

Confession is good for the soul, you know.

Carnifex said...

"Everything was fine until Little Suzy Krachclaw, who had been to the US in her youth, mis-took the Fathers leg for a banana split, and continued consuming until she reached what she thought was a cherry..."

I gotta' admit, the pointing out of the one guy whose entire remarks career has been about acceptance of odd people, is making fun of people he doesn't agree with, funnier than shit.

Ps

I would never call Andy a POS...to Gods face. After all, he does love Andy too. Even though Andy rejects him.

Darrell said...

what priests are best-known for today

Where? In Stupid Town where you are the Mayor?

Methadras said...

Maybe if we understood what the long standing tradition of this is, then we could get some perspective beyond what the pictures tell perhaps? Or is this considered unacceptable regardless of what the tradition is?

traditionalguy said...

I suspect the cream motif is about nourishing the young at the Mother Church's tit.

The Catholic thinkers are actually more woman centered than we see, it's just that the Catholic women are eunuchs called priests.

Darrell said...

Then you suspect wrong. That ceremony has nothing to do with RC Doctrine or practice. The article says or implies that it is related to that town--or particular school--so ther is no reason to "suspect" anything other than that.

I've never met a RC priest who was anything other than a dedicated servant of God who spent his entire like serving others, using his pitiful monthly stipend to help others when they needed it and to pay his meager way, providing his simple needs--like an older used car to allow him to visit parishioners in the hospital or give them a ride to the doctor.
Sad so many feel the need to crap on them even though they never had a bad personal experience with any priest to warrant such behavior.

clint said...

What is the world coming to when kids can't lick cream off their priest's knees in good fun?

But seriously... we live in a country which has beauty pageants for really young girls. Are we really in a position to cast stones?

I'm hard pressed to think of a community I've ever lived in that doesn't have at least some local customs or festivals that would look really bizarre if you just happened to stumble on them at random.

Carnifex said...

Clint has a point. The local "Bury Your Nuts Like A Squirrel" Festival here makes for some hilarious tee-shirts. And the "Fondle the Young Girls Like Your Sister" Contest just gets out of hand.

smarty said...

For an organization that requires slavish shows of obedience, they sure do let liberal nuns and gay priests say and do what they want.

Or is this not about slavish devotion, but about helping the priests select their next victims? Martin Luther would post his objections to this priests forehead.

Best comment though:

Have to admit that I don't really see anything wrong with this. Sure, it's a bit strange... but it's really only sexual if you see it that way. What a neat RohrShock test.
