World Strewth! Day
SOLO-International Press Release: World Strewth! Day
July 21, 2008
Reading about the performance of the world's most famous drag artist in Sydney, Australia, on what is called World Youth Day, impels one to repair to that estimable Aussie-ism, "Strewth!" observes SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.
300,000 young people who should know better made the haj from all over the world for this superstition-fest, described as a "Catholic Woodstock," starring the global head of the Church of Pedophilia.
"The stench of hypocrisy was as strong as the swish of his long skirts was loud," says Perigo.
"He apologised for sex abuse of Aussie children by Catholic clergy, saying, 'These misdeeds, which constitute so grave a betrayal of trust, deserve unequivocal condemnation. Those responsible for these evils must be brought to justice.' This is the same old cross-dresser who, as Cardinal Ratzinger, reiterated and refined the codes for covering up sex abuse in the infamous document, Crimen Sollicitationis. Strewth!
"The youngsters in attendance probably don't know that. They probably don't know about the Crusades, the Inquisition(s), the Sale of Indulgences, the corruption, brutality and depravity in which their church's history is steeped, either.
"But they must be given pause by such a silly old fart proscribing condoms. And you'd think they'd know, or at least be vaguely discomfited by, vicious mysticised communism when it stared them in the face, as this witchdoctor performed his ritual chants against 'individualism, 'consumerism' and 'material prosperity.' Strewth!
"It's true, as this charlatan observed, that 'a spiritual desert is spreading: an interior emptiness, an unnamed fear, a quiet sense of despair.' Such is the inevitable result of man's being taught for generations that his very means of survival and flourishing, his reason, is impotent. Any institution and any doctrine that asserts absurdities and repairs to faith for their validation, however, is not part of the solution. It is the problem. Dogmatism is not the answer to nihilism; each is a variant of the other. Mindless self-mortification is not the answer to mindless self-indulgence. The Catechism is not the answer to Death Metal.
"Rather than embrace any of the ancient superstitions desperately competing for their allegiance, youngsters would do radically better to repair to reason in their search for meaning and purpose - each to his own, since reason is an individual faculty.
"The idea of inquiring minds ending up in the clutches of arguably the most anti-life institution in history is ... well, 'Strewth!' doesn't begin to do justice to such a blasphemy against mankind," Perigo concludes.
