Indulgences Return, and Heaven Moves a Step Closer for Catholics - NYTimes.com
Funny how some people construct these particular moral codes by which to live and make plans for their life (and afterlife), only to rail full-force against these confinements, momentarily transcend them through sin, then suffer innumerable manifestations of guilt (sometimes violent and criminal) whose lingering shadow, and only its shadow, can be dismissed through a donation to the very organization that sustains the concept of sin, which in turn repeats endlessly into a perceived eternity. Hmm. Sounds like a real hot time. Have fun with that one, kids.
