Birth control is a sin book
Doubting Thomas
I seriously thought this was a joke website when I first looked at it, but no, it's an actual book for sale on amazon.com. Check out some of the pages in the book:

http://www.amazon...97-7665036

I thought it just had to be a joke. I mean, $135 for an obviously self-published 648 page book of preaching written in all caps with grammatical and spelling errors and weird punctuation? But it appears to be real.

What's really hilarious are the customer reviews.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me and not you.

ok the writer is Schizophrenic and just plain stupid. She can't spell or write let alone put a sentence together. She might get some people to buy it just for laughs but unfortunately most people who will purchase this book will do it for religious reasons. The title alone is enough to fool the religious into purchasing this dribble.

It's translated from the original 'Preverbal'.

Ugh. I read the first page and that was enough.

But as far as the spelling and grammar go I think it's perfect reading for the 'average' xtian since that's the way so many of them seem to write.

I hope someone buys her book so she can purchase a new keyboard. That's got to be what the problem is, since it won't type in lower case and keeps sending extraneous characters such as stars, greater-than signs, and colons. Of course we can't do anything about the spelling or grammatical errors, but maybe she could just use spell checker once in a while. And unfortunately we can't do anything about the content, either. Maybe she could just buy a brain.

And I really have to laugh at the idea of birth control depriving the priests of children. There's just way too many jokes to be made there.

And I was right about the book being self-published. Here's where she got it done: http://www.author...

I guess they don't offer editing services with that $599 publishing deal.

And I'm willing to bet that this book looks a lot like what Sarah Palin's first draft of her book looked like, all caps & misspellings included.

Men can be such self centered assholes sometimes. Some of them just can't seem to grasp that there are vast differences between them and women and that their values just can't be used to weigh the female condition.
I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.

Read the Amazon review by G.Foster. Hilarious.

Done. lol.

Surely that's not real. It has a lolcat as one of the pictures.
