Area gay child molester Donald Stevens, 29, announced today that he is seriously considering a career as a Catholic priest. Though raised a Methodist, Stevens says, “everything I’ve read about the Catholic church convinces me it would be a better fit.” Stevens believes the church’s close-knit male hierarchy will provide the structure he needs and will allow him to feel, in his words, “protected”.

Republican candidate for president Mitt Romney surrendered to police today after details became public about a bizarre recent incident in which an enraged Romney used his campaign tour bus to run over one-time political ally Senator Larry Craig of Idaho. “[Romney] threw me under his campaign bus,” stated Sen.

A new study released today finds that masturbation is as equally effective as prayer at bringing about particular states of affairs. Conducted over the course of five years, the study included 10,000 participants, half of whom were instructed to pray nightly before going to bed and to avoid masturbation, the other half to masturbate nightly before going to bed and avoid prayer. The results show that each ritual was exactly equally effective in bringing about the states of affairs passionately hoped for by the individual participants, whether it was winning at a sports contest, recovery of a loved one from illness, or an increase in world peace.
