Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

"Latex Veil" Redux

"We're Jesuits," Martin said. "I don't think you could have found anyone in the editors' room who has seen a condom."

Oh pah-leeze. Read this. Then tell me the Jesuits don't know exactly what they're up to...and what message they wanted sent by publishing this ad.

[Original post here.]

UPDATE: OK, OK...Since Ryder posted the hilarious response of the Jesuits at America, and since Phlogizo did not render the original post Englishly, and further, since Devil's Advocate has demonstrated great endurance in waiting for the translation, here it is:

Original: Jesuitas amo: non illis mens subdola; spernunt munera; non fallax ambitio placet his.

"I love the Jesuits: there isn't a deceitful mind among them; they spurn gifts; sucking up doesn't please them."

With improved punctuation: Jesuitas amo non: illis mens subdola; spernunt munera non; fallax ambitio placet his.

"I do not love the Jesuits: a deceitful mind is amongst them; they don't spurn gifts; sucking up pleases them."

Servus tuus,
