    aw, a pet goldfish? That’s cute! I want the company of a complimentary pet goldfish when I stay in a hotel!

    Just don’t take the goldfish on a date to a sushi bar and expect to get called back, is all I’m saying.

    Well I will say that AFA knows its audience:

    The same companies that own these luxury hotels also own some of the typical hotels and motels you and I might use. For example, Accor Hotels owns Motel 6.

    I am mightily curious how they expect a live fish to be used in a sex scheme. I know that by the time you can put it to words, someone’s done it, but to call the supply of a pet fish without a corresponding Bible an “intimacy kit” is a stretch even for the AFA.

    I am biased in favor of the hotels my own way. I’ve never liked the Gideons’ Bibles. Others I don’t mind (including the one I keep), but something about *those* bibles in particular bothers me. I expect that the sort of people who think a Bible ought to be foisted upon every hotel guest wouldn’t care that a particular distributing organization gave people the willies.

    I see the source of their outrage. If you offer condoms then… people might use them! The horror!

    I dont know about the AFAs position, but the social-conservative position on contraception in general is this:
    - If you are not married, you are not permitted contraception because you are not permitted to have sex.
    - If you are married you do not need contraception because any children you have will be accepted as God’s gifts and lovingly cared for and raised regardless of your circumstances.

    The latter I might start calling the ‘knocked-up scenario’ – the belief that even if a couple is barely holding together, fights often and has a tiny income, the addition of a child will *somehow* bring them back together every time, and the power of love will let them pay for it somehow.
