A few years ago, one of the state Senators referred to Asheville as a "Cesspool of sin." Of course, when I was wandering around Asheville last week, I saw a t-shirt that said, "Asheville - Cesspool of sin - Dive in!"
Daughter goes to a rather unusual Catholic church in Asheville. I love visiting it with her. The priest was once in an interfaith discussion in Asheville, and someone brought up the cesspool of sin comment. Most of the clergy there didn't want to address it, but the priest chimed in with: "Catholic churches are full of sinners so you could say that they're cesspools of sin."
He repeated it in a homily during Mass one Sunday. I really enjoy his homilies. :)
