Happy St. Patrick’s Day

In cool on March 17, 2009 at 6:39 pm

In my opinion St. Patrick’s Day is the second best holiday there is, Halloween being the first. I realize that both St. Patrick’s Day, and Halloween are technically religion affairs, but they have been culture phenomena than religious, and have been for decades. It’s the only day during the year that my line “we should make out, as I’m Irish!” isn’t creepy, and might (but probably won’t) work. I’ve been practicing my Irish jig, and I’m still terribly slow, I just hope no one at the bar was ever a part of Riverdance, or I will look quite the ass, the Irish ass, as it were. They say everyone is a little Irish on March 17th, maybe thats true, but tonight, with the last name Keating and a jig, I’m going to be as Irish as I ever been. I’m not touching potatos or haggis though.
I really need to visit the Emerald Isle, I will just be sure to take my own food.

In Other News…
From the Department of Blind Ideology:

Today, Pope Benedict XVI declared condoms to be no ally in the fight against AIDS. Il Papa upheld his predecessor’s legacy of urging sexual abstinence be used in place of condoms to prevent the further spread of the disease that has devastated Africa . Given the prevalence of AIDS, high new infection rates and the falling life expectancy one would think that the Pope would understand that pushing abstinence clearly isn’t working, and that real people are dying, not sperm. Apparently the Pope would rather a cognizance being die slowly of AIDS than budge from the teachings of an inconsistant Iron Age text. “You can’t resolve it with the distribution of condoms,” the pope told reporters “On the contrary, it increases the problem.”

So the Pope just claimed that protecting yourself from STDs actually helps to increase the spread of AIDS? 20+ million people in sub-Saharan Africa are infected with HIV, three-quarters of all AIDS deaths worldwide were there, as well as two-thirds of all people living with HIV.
