Dear Cousin Butchie,
My boyfriend is absolutely fabulous except for one thing. He is a fanatical Roman Catholic. It doesn't stop him from being a tiger in bed, but he does seem to feel guilt of some kind after the deed is done. I can't stand it. He jumps out of bed and prays for forgiveness . He says his parish priest told him he must do this. What do you think? Signed: Sinner
This situation does sound strange. I mean Cousin Butchie would hate to think that the sex is so bad that your boyfriend is begging forgiveness for it! Fanatical Catholics and Born Again anythings and members of Jonah and Courage are royal pains in the ass (you should excuse the expression). Why not go to the source and ask his parish priest what gives with this advice. I hope you will get a reasonable reply, but it's extremely doubtful. Cousin Butchie has always said that you can put a Roman collar on a jackass, and you still have a jackass! Threaten to contact the local bishop and say that you are concerned with the priest's knowledge of sex of any kind.
