Content Advisory: Whereas: this blog occasionally employs "colorful language,"
may also occasionally contain implicit and explicit references to
tobacco, alcohol, and other substances, as well as sexuality,
and favors logic over dogma, any or all of which may offend some,
and whereas I may occasionally give disclaimers,
but I do NOT give "trigger warnings,"
therefore, be it resolved that: this blog is intended for mature readers.
However, this blog is not age-restricted.

But, lest anyone imagine that was an isolated incident now relegated to history, ThinkProgress reported this today:
U.S. Catholic Bishops Insist Upon Discriminating Against LGBT People
Apparently, we need a new Enlightenment.
