Sweden's High Court to Worshippers of Orgasm God: "Where Do You Get Off?"
The Madonna of the Orgasm cannot even get a quickie with Sweden's highest court. Struggling to be recognized as a faith community in Sweden, the organization was rejected again this week by The Man, who said "there were no serious errors in the appeal court's judgement and the case did not involve an important precedent." Also that "the church's name would offend Christians." Orgasm shot back: "there were no grounds to appeal a Court of Appeal decision to reject the application." But religion or not, you can't be mad at these people; they project good vibes.
The church's Spanish founder and self-appointed cardinal, Carlos Bebeacua, has said that he believes that the orgasm is God and should be worshipped.
Beceacua once told tabloid Kvällsposten:
"The orgasm is the ultimate feeling of lust, it shouldn't be limited to ejaculation. You can reach it through art or by looking at a landscape and thinking 'Wow!'"
Unfortunately, no one with any power is willing to hear this mess. So it's bad news all around, except for people writing headlines. "Court climax premature for Madonna of Orgasm Church," for instance. Pun masters, go hard.
