Desperate Housewives and Naked Guys

Can you think of two better topics? In this case, they're one in the same.

It's been a great week for TV. First, "The Simpsons'" has its first gay marriage episode. Then, Betty White (Catherine) on "Boston Legal" said my favorite quote of the week:

"...I am saying that if you're out there murdering people, at some level you must want to be Christian. Would you let me take you to church?"

Finally, there was "Desperate Housewives," which friends and I watched Sunday night (since it hasn't stopped raining in like a week). Okay, I must admit: I was rather drunk and didn't remember posting this until I checked my email the next day, but it's all true. The show really made me want to play with my   TiVo-To-Go software and get these screencaps. Of course if you've not seen Justin's abs, let's first introduce you to the new gardner (who is the previous gardner's roommate):

Now if the thought of both of those hotties walking around their apartment after showering isn't enough to make you want to watch, let me add: Justin's gay (questioning) and later makes out in the pool (naked) with...

Pope: Gay marriage is 'evil'

ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- Homosexual marriages are part of "a new ideology of evil" that is insidiously threatening society, Pope John Paul says in his newly published book. (article)

18th Century:

"In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own." —Thomas Jefferson

"What influence in fact have Christian ecclesiastical establishments had on civil society? In many instances they have been upholding the thrones of political tyranny. In no instance have they been seen as the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wished to subvert the public liberty have found in the clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate liberty, does not need the clergy." —James Madison
