What is this guy doing, and where at? (not safe for kids) December 5, 2011

Context makes all the difference.  What is this guy watching, what is he doing, and where was this picture taken from?

So, one figure chilled out on the couch watching TV, and another one doing…….?  Well, would it make a difference if I told you that the figure was associated with some discussion on pornography?  Does the drooling tongue and possibly strategically placed right arm make a difference now?  Would it make any more difference if I told you this comes from p. 224 of Youcat, Cardinal Schoenborn’s youth catechism? 

Perhaps it’s meant to be silly, or…………something.  I don’t know, it certainly seems at best in bad taste, quite possibly scandalous. Is such an image appropriate for a Catholic Catechism?  Especially one targeted especially to youth?

Perhaps I’m just being my normal humorless, rigorist, out of touch self, and just don’t get it?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, why fill YouCat with imagery that does nothing to lift up the soul, and worst, implants negative actions? And quotes from non-Catholics – why when we have so many wonderful and faithful saints we can quote? What are we expecting the youth to learn from this book?

I just don’t get it.

It’s tempting for the youth to want to read this book, my own daughter asked if she could read it (hah, not a chance).
