  1. Fascinating piece from the Presbyterian Record. I would take it perhaps a step further and say that there is a natural affinity between a religious community and the narcissists who prey upon it.

    1. Agi Tater -- The trust and adoration that religious communities show to their leaders would definitely appeal to narcissists.

  2. I wasn't aware that baking a cake meant "participating in acts of sodomy". The recipes in his cookbook must be considerably more intriguing than I imagined.

    1. Infidel -- What racy cookbooks does Klingerschmitt have on his shelf? It boggles the mind!
