Blame It On The Shame...Yeaaah Yeah...

Remember Milli Vanilli? Yeah, those two guys who had an album or two with some hit songs back in the day, then got outed as fakeass lip-sync douches. They gave their Grammy(s?) back, lost all of their sizeable fan base, fell into obscurity, one killed himself and the other is still fucking around in shit nightclubs trying to remake his image and career. Anyone asked would likely say, "Oh yeah, I remember them. I used to like them until they got caught faking." Then there'd be that weird moment where the guy tries to talk but have his lips not match the words and you'd do that awkward not-laugh thing and then silence would come....

Ok, so what about the Catholic church? It used to be in a position of power, few questioned its authority, but then you found out that nice Father Patrick who gave you your marriage classes and taught you about relationships - regardless of the fact that the fucking guy barely even talked to women his entire life - got caught balls deep in the neck of an eight-year old. Then the Bishop moved him to another parish so he could ass-rape and mentally destroy seven other pre-teens while being fully aware that Patrick was a pedophile. This isn't an isolated incident and you are now cognizant of that fact.

Now the fucking pope goes to Angola where they've been (thankfully?) somewhat spared from the 20% AIDS infection rate of countries like neighboring Namibia by a 27-year civil war, however there is still rampant poverty, a 16% AIDS infection rate in the south, AND two-thirds of women give birth before age twenty*. What genocidally stupid thing does the goddamn pope say? "Condoms won't help the AIDS crisis...they'll make it worse."

After this, how can anyone out there look at themselves in a mirror and say that they're a Catholic? You should be somewhere in the range of infinitely more embarrassed than a still passionate Milli Vanilli fan. Fuck, I'd blow the still-living guy rather than join back with the Catholics. Seriously.

Great, now I have only one part of a milli vanilli song stuck in my head, because I only know that one part. :( lol.

Apologies all around for that, Sunny. One day I shall make it up to you.

Damn, I actually liked Milli Vanilli. Some catchy songs there.

Didn't know the one guy killed himself. Huh.
