PG blog, torture
One "bitch" and several uses of the words "death" and "dead" got me that rating. Bill Carroll over at Anglican Resistance got an NC-17 for his use of "torture." No, it's not a real rating, just one more bloggy game.
Go read about the real thing. Torture, that is. Yesterday was International Torture Awareness Day, according to Bill. I didn't know, but I spent most of the day in the library working at the same table as a good friend who is writing (theologically and ethically) about torture.
Actually, June is torture awareness month. The 26th was the day of solidarity at the UN, and also a lobbying day in Washington, co-sponsored by several organizations. What, you didn't know about the National Religious Coalition Against Torture?
P.S. Now that I have used the word "torture" four times, my blog is rated "R."
Oops, nine times now. Still the R rating, though.
As Bill notes, let's be clear where the real obscenity lies.
