Planned Parenthood Fundraiser: Bingo and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence


For those of you who don’t know, the Sisters of Perpetual indulgence is a drag act featuring gay men dressed as nuns.

I assume that everyone knows what Bingo is and who Planned Parenthood is.

Put all this together and shake twice, and you’ve got an in-your-face-Catholics fundraising event for Seattle Planned Parenthood.

The invitation for Planned Parenthood’s tasteful soiree says in part:

Bar Nun Bingo will feature fantastic prizes, happy hour food prices, and delightful special guests from The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, The Abbey of St. Joan, a Capitol Hill organization that educates the public on safer sex, queer rights, and other critical community issues.

This year, Planned Parenthood will offer two nights of fun: Tuesday, April 22nd, at Poquitos and Thursday, April 24th, at the Pike Brewing Company! Come to one or both nights. We can’t wait to see you!

    Somehow this fits, it’s not like Planned Parenthood is pro-family.

    If anyone doubted if abortion was evil, you just have to read the testimony of a former abortion worker who saw the light:

    September/October 2008: “Valerie”

    On that particular day, from my position I was able to see him extracting perfectly formed little arms, legs, toes, fingers, spine and finally the head. I could see the baby’s face. I don’t know how to describe what I felt at that moment. I felt death. I was ashamed and confused as I was staring at the bloody parts of the baby. I can even say I felt the presence of the devil. It was very disturbing. My mind was so blinded by the darkness in it I was unable to do anything. …

    If this baby had been born prematurely at 20–22 weeks it would have had a chance to live. I thought, “People, think about what are you doing. Think about the consequences of this abortion. Imagine this is you, Imagine you are in the most secure place you could be, in your mother’s womb. You have no idea how cruelly your life will end, how you will be torn to pieces. We betray our children. We interrupt their precious lives so abruptly, so unexpectedly. You think abortion brings relief but instead it brings emptiness, shame, pain, regret, feelings of death.” …

    I know this is blatant anti-catholicism, but I just can’t get worked up about it. The whole schtick is so juvenile.

      They do jump the shark, don’t they?

    This pretty much sums up the spirit of things in the Pacific NW among those, say, 45 and younger… brazen offense delivered with a grin, wink, and puckish juvenile middle finger. It’s not really limited to those who are left wing or anti-Catholic/Christian, tho I think they do it “better” than the conservative sorts who try to play the humor game. After all, if you are going for a laugh by slaughtering a sacred cow, your opponent has to “have” a sacred cow to steal and you have to be willing to slaughter her in broad daylight. Most Conservatives are better at the straight-man routine (pun only partly intended). ;)
