Because celibacy is EASIER....

A catalogue in the mail, today, from LitPress.In the blurb advertising a book entitled, Demythologizing Celibacy: Practical Wisdom form Christina and Buddhist Monasticism, we learn that celibacy is a “valid” practice for those who “CHOOSE NOT TO ACCEPT THE DEMANDS [emphasis mine] of a committed sexual relationship.”Explain this to me--Cause celibacy is so UNdemanding?
Well, at least they condescend to admit that it is "valid."Kinda like “fasting is a valid practice for those who choose not to accept the demands of eating.”
Going to early Mass is a valid practice for those who choose not to accept the demands of sleeping in.
Almsgiving is a valid practice for those who choose not to accept the demands of spending their money on themselves.

Yeah, celibates have taken the easy way out....

I’m thinking LitPress is not going to be getting any more of my book money.

Going to early Mass is a valid practice for those who choose not to accept the demands of the organist to NOT have to wake up at 6. :P
