Emoticon Smile Get on yr knees and pray for it

Got this off a site which collects anecdotes like the deodorant thing:

"Church urges couples to pray before sex

Newly-wed Roman Catholic couples are being encouraged to say a special prayer together before having sex.

The specially-composed Prayer Before Making Love is aimed at 'purifying their intentions' so the act is not about selfishness or hedonism.

It appears in the 64-page Prayer Book for Spouses which has been published by the London-based Catholic Truth Society, reports the Daily Mail.

The prayer implores God 'to place within us love that truly gives, tenderness that truly unites, self-offering that tells the truth and does not deceive, forgiveness that truly receives, loving physical union that welcomes'.

It adds: "Open our hearts to you, to each other and to the goodness of your will."

The group has close links to the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.

The Rt Rev Paul Hendricks, who is the Auxiliary Bishop of Southwark and sits on the charity's board, said he thought the prayer's inclusion was 'brave but good'.

"I suppose it is a bit idealistic but it is recognising that God is at the heart of the marriage relationship between husband and wife," he said.

"It is important for the Church to affirm the value of marriage and family life and I suppose this is a particular way of doing that."

The book contains prayers for every stage of marriage and family life, including engagement, planning for parenthood, pregnancy and caring for children and elderly parents."

Any excuse to get her on her knees and worship the one true god works for me.

Dude, I pray for sex every day, and it still don't happen.
To be honest, most women simply treat me as a sex object, I mention sex, they object.

There the Roman-Catholics go again, trying to take the hedonism out of sex, "You can have it, just pray first, and you can't enjoy it."

"Okay, God, I forgot the rubber today so umm, if you can just make sure that if something happens tonight, I won't get her preg-o, alright cool see ya, Amen."

Totally the prayer most guys are gonna be saying when they're praying. Because nobody wants that to happen now do they?

Why does the church have to take the fun out of every damn thing? This kind of baloney just strengthens my resolve to spend my Sundays sleeping in.

Idealistic? More like sheer arrogance. The relationship between me and my wife is between me and my wife. It is not some sort of love triangle.

Amen, Brother!

And I was thinking it could not get any worse when the pope said using condoms and contraceptives of any kind is unholy. W-T-F. That's why I don't go to church.
