Nearly all Koalas have Chlamydia

In people, chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease. A different strain infects koalas, but it too can be spread sexually, and it’s causing a devastating epidemic. In some parts of Australia, koala infection rates are as high as 90%.

Chlamydia affects male and female koalas, and even the little ones called joeys – who pick it up suckling from their mothers in the pouch.

It causes blindness and infertility in koalas – and can be fatal. Visible signs of infection include conjunctivitis, and a condition dubbed “dirty tail”, caused by urinary tract infections and incontinence.

Some other animals are also infected with the disease but it is usually at low levels. It affects koalas more seriously and experts don’t know why that is.

There Church of Satan does not worship or believe in the existence of Satan

Magical sorcery is not part of the Church of Satan. In fact, the Satanic Bible warns against practicing White Magic and Black Magic.

The Church of Satan proclaims that we have free will and that fate plays no part in our existence. People are accountable only to themselves and humanity. Satan is a strong representation of how Satanists see themselves. He is not the deity of the religion, but the main inspirational figure. He does not struggle with how a religious moral code might affect his existence. A great deal of what traditional religions consider evil and carnal—attributes of the “Dark One”—Satanists consider natural. This makes Satanism a surprisingly free and tolerant religion .

It was at this time that he created the persona of Mr. T. His wearing of gold neck chains and other jewelry was the result of customers losing the items or leaving them behind at the night club after a fight.

A customer, who may have been banned from the club or trying to avoid another confrontation, would not have to re-enter the club if Mr. T wore their jewelry as he stood out front. When a customer returned to claim the item, it was readily visible and available with no further confrontation required.
