"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

What if people really talked liked this?

Catholicly Correct speech ...

How to introduce your formerly 'gay' son and his friend when they arrive for a candlelight dinner party:  "This is my same sex attracted son Sheridan, and his disinterested friend Tarquin."

. . .

The Candlelight Supper, Sheridan rings, and after asking for seventy pounds, the following is heard:

Hyacinth (to Sheridan): "Now you're not spending it on girls, are you, dear? You promised Mummy. We agreed not until after you've finished your education. [she listens] Oh, you and Tarquin aren't interested in girls. What a comfort that is to a mother's heart, dear."

  1. I love that Bucket woman! Who cares if every episode is exactly the same. I wish they would make a remake with Sheridan being a pretentious middle-age queen. He could have some poor mousey woman (with a rich father) for a wife who to play the Richard part and Tarquin as his "business associate "and his "ex school chum..but not the boarding school kind!" Oh yes we so desire a child..you must know how much rents are in the most prestigious parts of Chelse! Why it's ever so hard to find room. And I detest children sleeping in cupboards ! But would it be fair really with our high-powered careers?"

    He could go to NOM rallies "Oh you are so right Lady Coucilman Nugent Junior.. Marriage is between one man and one woman but I think there should be even more restrictions based on social economic class!" And of course that is when a still carrying a torch drunken Tarquin and his friends would crash the fundraiser..Tarquin being a cross between the Major and Daisy... And hilarity would ensue...

    1. I always thought a rewrite of the Odd Couple would have worked with Felix being gay and Oscar not so much - and totally disinterested. The current one with Chandler is the worst - definitely they should have gone with gay in that. They could both be 'ssa' but totally disinterested friends who are interested in making new disinterested friends. Kinda/sorta.
