SHORT FEATURE: PRINCES IN AGONY

Just in case you don't recognize these little ditties, this is the song Agony and its reprise from the Broadway production of Into The Woods. If you don't know the play, don't worry, it won't take long to recognize these are the fabled Charming brothers singing of their princely woes.

Also perfectly obvious is what's wrong with these idiots. But since I've had the audacity to include the word catechism in my blog title, it's probably a good idea to include something from The Catechism to further clarify things.

"The chaste person maintains the integrity of the powers of life and love placed in him. This integrity ensures the unity of the person; it is opposed to any behavior that would impair it. It tolerates neither a double life nor duplicity in speech. Chastity includes an apprenticeship in self-mastery which is a training in human freedom. The alternative is clear: either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated by them and becomes unhappy."
