And while we're at it...

Speaking of Catholicism and sex, one of my biggest pet peeves is the misuse of the term "immaculate conception." Often it is used to refer to Mary conceiving Jesus without having intercourse. This is not what the term means; immaculate conception refers to the doctrine of Mary having been conceived without sin. In other words, when Mary's parents conceived Mary, Mary was created without "original sin." Not that I subscribe to this belief, but still, the misuse of it annoys me...because I'm a religion dork ;)
