The link below is to a Washington Post piece in which a member of the Catholic priest class, a brotherhood routinely in the news with child abuse and rape scandals involving their representatives and the brotherhood's attempted cover-ups of these activities, proclaims that all who don't share his group's delusions lack a "real basis for the moral imperative to respect" other people.

Glad I could help Grundgetta! :)

That is hilarious, Grundgetta.

"A cilice was originally a garment or undergarment made of coarse cloth or animal hair (a hairshirt). In more recent times the word has come to refer not to a hairshirt, but to a spiked metal belt or chain worn strapped tight around the upper thigh. Many religious orders within the Roman Catholic Church have used the cilice as a form of "corporal mortification," but in recent years it has become known as a practice of numeraries (celibate lay people) of Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Roman Catholic Church."

Thank you, I had to look up cilice. Now I don't have to go to a thesaurus when I'm looking for another word for hairshirt.
