I have discovered that I feel oddly comforted when people say they're praying for my DH. Perhaps it's just feeling supported because they're doing what they feel will help.

At first glance the one nun appears to be saying she never traveled along that path before. The second nun interprets her comment using the word 'come' for having an orgasm. A bumpy ride over cobblestones on a bike with your crotch repeatedly hitting the saddle seat may produce some interesting results, lol! Especially for the chaste “sisters of God." Tho I haven't personally had this experience on a bicycle!

The nun meme reminds me that there are many reasons religion is harmful, and one is the way it maligns human sexuality and sensuality. Religion seems especially repulsed by female sensuality. It's treated like one of the greatest sins ever, even worse than murder or incest. Religion seems to be about denying any sexual feelings and it often teaches that those feelings are something to be ashamed of and shamed for. Countless, countless lives are messed up because of religious teachings about sex. So many religions want to sanitize the nether regions claiming they are only to be used for reproduction. Not allowed to enjoy! Shame on you if you do! God don't like that! You gonna burn in hell! All the messages the religions put out there, I don't think many people actually have a normal concept regarding sex. It's tragic. A vast majority seem to focus on repressing female sexuality while males seem to be excused if they fall prey to temptation.

I just looked at the digital Catholic Catechism - talk about hating one's body and where even sexual thoughts are sinful, no wonder there are so many messed up folks. In that book "homosexual acts are...intrinsically disordered." My deepest sympathies to gay youth who have that seed of self-hatred planted by their church.
