"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.

Vampires: They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.




Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.

In addition to Therians, Furries, Otherkin and every category of trans you can imagine, you got your Vampires - coming out of the coffin...
“Most vampires believe they were born that way; they don’t choose this,” Williams said.
Research led by D.J. Williams, director of social work at Idaho State University, indicated that people who identify themselves as “real” vampires – that is, needing others’ blood to gain energy – would not disclose their practices to those in the helping professions and risk reactions like ridicule, disgust and possible diagnosis of a mental illness.
Williams, who has studied self-identified vampires for nearly a decade, finds they come from every walk of life and profession, including doctors, attorneys and candlestick makers.
“They are successful, ordinary people,” he said. - Reuters
That's what he thinks.

So anyway ...

Don't judge me.

  2. Wouldn't want to risk a "possible diagnosis of a mental illness," no. This reminds me of an X-Files episode. If I remember it correctly, one of a trio of "vampires" worked in a blood bank. That seems more sensible than cutting people's chests--and a lot safer because the blood is screened. But who am I to judge since I don't identify as a member of the vampire community?

  3. If I remember correctly some of the most handsome and slick men are vampires...they suck the life out of you should you encounter/fall for one. ;p

  4. Modern society, or should I say post-modern society, has lost the ability and the desire to distinguish between the normal and the abnormal. Indeed, for many people, those categories do not exist in their intellectual framework. I see it as part and parcel of the dissolution of society from within.

  5. Lol..Morticia is not a vampire..just a "typical wife and mother, taking care of her family and trying to find time to join the forces of darkness in their hellish crusade!" One of the first horror movies I saw was Christopher Lee's Dracula...it's where I learned that cleavage equals lady vamps and doom!

    1. I used Morticia's image for Eve Tushnet once. I used to think those Spiritual Friendship people shoul work on their appearance a bit more. They are so not attractive - which may explain a lot.

      What?

    2. Are you saying its easy to be celibate when no one is asking you to dance??? Just kidding, but I mean, we can't all be movie stars but we can all take a bath and comb our hair..hit they gym every now and then...MEOW!!!

      Though I thought Lily Munster was hotter..too bad she was married to a mildly retarded husband..(oh, that was not PC.) I did like that Gomez and Morticia were totally into each other, I think they were the only married couple on TV in the 60s who were actually acting like they were getting it on.
