Amish Romance Novels Put A Boner In Your Bonnet

In “bonnet books,” as Amish romances are called, the author’s idea of a sexual climax is typically a few (sinful!) kisses spread throughout 300 pages. Sounds hawt, huh?

A pastor in Texas thinks the best way to get closer to God is to have a ton of sex (if you’re married, that is). Rev.

So I’m Engaged: Wherefore Art Thou, God?

In my opinion, getting married as a religious person is much easier than getting married as an Atheist or an Agnostic because deciding who is going to officiate the ceremony is so filled with confusion, it would just be simpler to say, “Well I guess Father Tom will take care of business.”

Penance For Sex Positions In The Middle Ages

Theologians in the middle ages devoted a lot of time to thinking about which sex positions were more pleasurable, and therefore more evil.

The porno publication famous for its scantily clad “pets” has been saved from financial ruin by branching out into internet dating with BigChurch.com.

Jesus Knows You’re Watching Porn!

GodTube is so awesome. A sin-free alternative to YouTube, GodTube has all sorts of Christian videos, including ones that teach sinners lessons. Like this guy, who gets busted watching dirty, disgusting porn by Jesus Christ himself! Isn’t it kind of blasphemous to suggest that Jesus has a mullet? Pretty sure he’d like to…

Mitt Romney Implies God Made Man And Man Couldn’t Control His Boner

Admittedly, we’re not the most religiously educated group of folks on the internet, but maybe someone should take away Mitt Romney’s Book of Mormon and give him a good hard spanking with it. An ABC News blogger notes that while on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Romney pointed out the large leaves in a…
