On 'The Thorn Birds': When Young, Sexy, Straight Priests Roamed The Earth

@mascarasnake Oh and in Ireland we have a Bad John Waters, who is far inferior to Good John Waters but worth looking up on wiki. He's a columnist with one of our broadsheets, and no matter what issue he writes about it uuuusually boils down to the evil feminists destroying society.

On 'The Thorn Birds': When Young, Sexy, Straight Priests Roamed The Earth

Two things my teetotal, suit-wearing farmer Grandfather always had to hand were Silvermints and what we referred to as his 'dirty books". They were Mills and Boon(Harlequin in the US, I think?) and a source of complete fascination to me. Looking back it seems bizarre that the only things he read were church newsletters and books about eighties careerwomen's love lives..

ALSO I have never ever met a sexy priest, but I did once meet one my mother dubbed Father Trendy because he wore a leather jacket and too casually dropped mild curse words into conversation. At the time he was sort of her boss as the hierarchy in Irish schools goes something like: Principal < Board of Management < Parish Priest
