Excellent piece with wonderful insights, Jan. How much longer are we going to let a bunch of perverted religious leaders convince us that sensuality is sinful? In fact, it is the essence of life. In a sane world, the strippers, hookers and porn stars would be honored and revered citizens, not a bunch of perverts whose robes hide their perpetual hard-ons.

A more refined comment along the lines of "Elmo's" was made by Dr. Roberto Stock, the person presumed responsible for the appearance of the ghastly image on YBYL in the first instance.

"I can imagine an infinitely perverse castrated catholic monk turned publicist making this ad to "educate" the young into the risks of sex. By comparison, the more abstract terrors of sulphur and flames for eternity - or endless unreachability à la Paolo e Francesca - are far less scary.
