And sometimes snark fails you ...

There are times when I think the so-called “values voters” that make up the Christian right are actually just perpetrating the biggest con job in the history of con jobs. How else do you explain the never-ending stream of stories about sex, drugs and wetsuits? Via CBS News online:

A Utah retailer of family-friendly tapes and DVDs - Hollywood films with the "dirty parts" cut out of them - has been arrested for trading sex with two 14-year-old girls.

Orem police say Flix Club owner Daniel Dean Thompson, 31, and Issac Lifferth, 24, were booked into the Utah County jail on charges of sexual abuse and unlawful sexual activity with a 14-year-old.

CBS Station KUTV in Salt Lake City reports that the shocking discovery came when a mother found a $20 bill in her daughter’s room last week and questioned her about where the money came from.

The girl confessed that she and a friend had been paid for sexual favors by an older male.

Lifferth was additionally charged with patronizing a prostitute and was also in possession of a prescription drug medication without a prescription.

Thompson's Flix Club was one of several Utah-based video outlets that traded in edited versions of R- and PG-13-rated films, catering to clientele who wanted to watch hit movies without nudity, sex, language or graphic violence.

Just so we’re clear here – no T&A for you but sex with underage teenagers for me, got it? Good.

Sounds about right for the right wing crowd. They can nail minors all they want but you watch a R rated moving that shows -a- boob and you're going to hell.
