Religion and Sex

The young Mexican Horse Thief

Just read a blog, purely but accident, I assure you! It discusses the evils of pre-marital sex. Horror of horrors!
I had a flashback to my childhood and teenage years, growing up in a very strict Jehovah’s Witness household. This was a big problem, for you see, the Mexican Horse Thief has always liked girls.

In this religion one is not even allowed to associate closely with non-members, they are called – worldly people. Now at my school there were lots of very sexy worldly girls. I wanted  to do more than bloody associate with them. The long and short of it is that other good little Jehovah’s Witness kids were for ever pimping me for merely holding hand or kissing these pretty girls at lunch breaks.  That was firstly, reported my my father and it was a hiding with a leather belt, then over the course of the next few days the Elders would arrive and I would have to relate step by step the nature of my sins. In great detail they demanded this. Scriptures were read. I worked out quickly, this is how these boring old farts got their kicks! Sickos! When I voiced this opinion I got some more of the leather for my trouble.

Reading the blog and seeing the; “20 Things Single People Can Do Besides Have Sex and the  “20 Things You Can Do On  A Date Besides Have Sex”. I have to laugh and be glad I was and still am, just a little bit naughty.

I posted this in the Humor category for a reason, read this:
