No, I mean that it ranks up there with his brand of hateful statements against religious populations with its implication that all catholic churches are staffed with pedophiles that receive oral sex from kids....

I find it strange that the very society that accepts this as a snicker-funny haha rejects nappyheaded ho on the radio? especially when one can turn the dial to a radio station that has songs that use the word ho over and over again.

Fucked up.

It's a matter of public record that the Catholic Church has indeed hired pedophiles, knowingly kept them in positions of authority, and moved them to different locales to shield them from prosecution. Stating a fact is not the same as Imus' racial remarks. OTOH, the fabricated stained glass window is indeed in the same territory as Imus.

I fully agree. Fucked-up describes so much in our culture.

OTOH, the fabricated stained glass window is indeed in the same territory as Imus.

I received that picture in an e-letter some years ago and thought it may rate a laugh in this context. In my opinion, the stained glass window isn't a put-up job but a photo of a real one whose designer didn't think about another thing the window might depict.

At least some folks are examining just that point.

Here's one op-ed about it.

In 2005, Essence Magazine started the Take Back The Music campaign.

Pam Spaulding in her Pandagon Blog has this to say.

It's also a matter of public record that at least two of the basketball players who spoke out against Imus were pretty damn nappy headed.

C4C,

I guess the first question should have been are there any church friendly climbers? ;\) Anyway, there are a few of us. I am sorry I didn't see your post earlier. I know of at least 4 climbers going to our church this morning. You would have been more than welcome regardless of your clothing. I know one that is wearing jeans and sandals. No big deal.

I guess we should expect these kinds of replies because as a whole, the Christian church has not been very gracious. Shame on us. I hope you had a worshipful experience at the Luthern church. Happy Easter.

D4T
Pious climbers, it seems, are in good company.

I'm not sure I follow your meaning/intention.

Just a guess here... but I think wine bucket was trying to point out that there are some relatively famous climbers that embrace religion...

Interesting grave marker from the site:
