Pope Benedict XVI has joined other religious leaders in condemning the use of full-body scanners for airline security. Ooh, more forbidden fruit ... goody! As a prolapsed Catholic, I might even consider giving up full-body scanners on Fridays during Lent, but after that all bets are off.
Said the principal papist on balancing security needs with human dignity: “the primary asset to be safeguarded and treasured is the person, in his or her integrity.” Apparently this pope is quite a people person, and one who thinks scanners will compromise our character.
Speaking of sodomy, three cops have been acquitted in a case where one of them is alleged to have inserted a baton into a handcuffed suspect’s ass, with the other two covering it up (the incident, not the ass). The verdict came after another cop risked his own ass to act as a witness against them. It seems justice may have taken it up the ass here.
