'Concupiscence Darkens The Intellect' or 'Sin Makes you Stupid'

What a great saying. Is there a truer statement?

I can't tell you how many times (sometimes in a single day-shame, :-0 ) that I tell myself

"Boy, how stupid can I get!" after I've stupidly followed the path of sin.
Thank God for Confession/Reconciliation.

Anyways, I can't claim the creation of this saying. I found it on Mark Shea website attached to a pretty good article


How the Enemies of the Normal Are Destroying Obama

It is an old fact of Christian theology that concupiscence "darkens the intellect" -- or, as I prefer to put it in more colloquial terms, "Sin Makes You Stupid."

... see I told you it was there...

The visceral reaction to Sarah Palin by the Enemies of the Normal in the Obama camp is a picture-perfect illustration of this.
From the instantaneous embrace of
Trig Trutherism by Andrew Sullivan, Kossites, and various demented contributors to the official Obama Campaign site to the strange theories put forward that Palin is (wait for it) a pro-life hypocrite for not aborting Trig to the bewildered and panicky revelations that Palin is actually on record as praying for friends and being an average high school student, the sheer hatred and terror of the Normal from the manufacturers of Blue State culture is palpable.

Mark Steyn received an e-mail from right here in my home state, the Soviet Republic of Washington, that distills in chemical purity the heart and soul of the Abortion Party's real hatred for Sarah Palin:

This abortion prohibitionist hag won't cut it among women with brains. And BTW she is a good example of reproduction run amok. 5 kids; 1 retard. I wonder if the bitch ever heard of getting spayed.
There is more than the political to a remark like that. It's a spiritual and even demonic hatred, a Herodian hatred I'm not sure can be capped by mere appeals to prudence and reason by people in the Obama campaign who are nervously eyeing the polling data and seeing how the Palin Hate is playing with ordinary people.


Another example of 'Sin makes you stupid':

Canadian obstetricians worry that the success reate of their Search & Destroy Mission may be in jeopardy

U.S. vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin's loving and highly-publicized acceptance of her Down's syndrome child Trig has some Canadian doctors worried that her example may lead to mothers shunning abortion after diagnosis of Down's syndrome.

They're worried that abortions will go down and people will value life...
