Fake priest charges 'fornication fee' for couples getting married
Shame, Shame, Shame:
Fake Priest

MyFoxNY.com - A Long Island couple knew that getting married was expensive. What they didn't count on was the priest planning to charge them extra for living together. Fox 5's Arnold Diaz exposes a so-called 'fornication fee'.

2. With the trend toward gutting education funding
future uneducated masses will fall for this stuff because they won't have the critical thinking skills to realize it's bogus. I guess that's what the Republicans want, eh?

6. The porn industry

7. Apparently a lot of people think that there's a giant invisible man in the sky
who has nothing better to worry about -with the entire universe to "run", mind you- than whether or not the hairless apes of planet Earth are legally wed before they fuck each other.

Seems to me, once you've accepted that basic premise, adding a cash payment into the mix isn't that much of a stretch.
