There are some things that people do that are so wicked that it is hard to believe that they are not deliberately fanning the fires of hell. Take, for example, an article written by Tristan Taormino, a lesbian ex-Catholic who hates Jesus.
In a piece that appeared in the April 17 edition of the Village Voice (a sexplicit rag given away for free in New York), Taormino begins her tirade by boasting how she rejected Catholicism at the age of eight. She then takes delight in describing how she discovered a store that sells sex toys made in the design of religious figures. The best-selling item, she says, is called “Jackhammer Jesus”: it displays Jesus on the cross sitting atop a silicone-based penis.
The language she uses is not suitable for this publication, so we won’t go into any further detail. Suffice it to say that this is one of the sickest articles we’ve seen in recent times. The fact that appeared during Holy Week speaks volumes.
While Taormino hates Catholicism, she has no use for other world religions, either. She mocks Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Mormonism, using obscene terms to defile them.
We think you should write to Donald H. Forst, editor-in-chief, and let him know what you think. Write to him at the Village Voice, 36 Cooper Square, New York, New York 10003. While it would be silly to think that anything will change his mind (this is all done deliberately and with malice), he still might benefit from hearing from you. You may also want to write to Richard Goldstein, co-executive editor. He recently debated William Donohue on TV and got the stuffing kicked out of him.
Members who request to see a copy of this article should contact us and we will send it out right away. See page 2 of Catalyst for information on how to reach us. But be forewarned, the article is not suitable for minors and will gross out everyone.
The reason why we are making this article available is that it might come in handy in persuading those who say anti-Catholicism doesn’t exist anymore.
