09:52 am - A ministry of sex toys? I'm so there!
"Church organist fired for focusing on the wrong organ"
Apparently, this nice lady was a church organist and music director, and she was moonlighting as a consultant for Pure Romance, which does those tupperware-party-like sex toy parties.

Her priest asked her to quit the sales job with Pure Romance.

Her answer to the priest?

"I feel that Pure Romance is my ministry."

I have a new hero.

I think I'd sue.

I mean, in most church jobs you can be fired for engaging in non-christian activities, but sex toys aren't a violation of church law. they're not one of the big ten. Premarital sex is, but she's certainly not engaging in that (unless that's what she does at the parties).

I don't see any reason for this firing except a bunch of stuff dicks afraid of sex.

This was brilliant, I thought. The thing is, the job the priest "fired" her from was essentially a volunteer position. Guess he showed her!

There's no question - There's a calling for everyone. Some are quite obviously more awesome than others.

However, this brings to mind something very frustrating and irritating - the Catholic Church's prohibition on something that is a healthful activity: masturbation. It's good for the health. Pure and simple. Also, it frustrates me that she was doing work *as a cancer survivor* to improve the quality of life of others, and she got penalized for it. But, that's the Church for you, honestly.

Yeah, the RCC hasn't exactly been known for it's rationality on the subject of sexual behavior-- *especially* when it comes to women.

All hail Pure Romance.... is there a particular Order of Ritual you need to follow with them? I'd hate to get it wrong

Hmm, I didn't know Pure Romance was based in my hometown... sehr interessant. It presents some intriguing possibilities in the prudishness that the mojority of Lovelanders are known for. *ponders mischeviously*
