"My Half-Year of Hell With Christian Fundamentalists"

Der Spiegel reports this story:
When Polish student Michael Gromek, 19, went to America on a student exchange, he found himself trapped in a host family of Christian fundamentalists. What followed was a six-month hell of dawn church visits and sex education talks as his new family tried to banish the devil from his soul. Here's his story.
I read the poor fellows account with a great deal of sympathy, since throughout my entire youth I was bombarded daily with ultra-conservative Catholicism - the Philadelphia Irish Catholic variety, which included saying the rosary while climbing the stairs on our knees one decade at a time, emergency confessions (usually because of "impure thoughts"), and frequent dinnertime lectures on the evils of sex and abortion.

Well, Michael, fuck the fucking fuckers.
