Everybody's favorite scary Catholic douchebag John Bambenek is back, this time with a column in the local campus rag, The Daily Illini about... gasp drinking at college!

Something is bizarrely tragic and sad for a 31-year old who can only get his trash published in college newspapers. I'm not sure that 30-somethings who spend all day hanging out with 19-year olds playing "journalist" has any standing to criticize, but that doesn't stop him anyway.  That's why he can't even get elected to the local school board, everyone knows he's a nut... and this latest column doesn't disappoint.

Last year they said they issued 176 tickets for drinking. Congratulations! Have a cookie. More people got the clap last Unofficial than got a drinking ticket.

As usual, right-wing Christian nutjobs can't go more than 15 seconds without their sexual hangups and repressions coming out. Oh no! Sex is evil! This isn't the first time that Bambenek goes on bizarre rants about sexually transmitted infections, the only thing missing is blaming feminists (like he did in another column titled You are more than your vagina).

The real problem Bambenek has is that people are using their freedom to have a good time. It's college, you are SUPPOSED to have some fun. And because these kids have fun he suggest it's time to take away their right to vote:

Perhaps it's time to have a serious discussion about repealing the 26th Amendment.

The University of Illinois is a pretty progressive place, its a shame that people like Bambenek get a platform to spew intolerance and hate. At least it lets us see what these crazed Republican extremists really think.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
