I am currently finishing reading a fantastic book, "Under the Banner of Heaven" by John Krakauer. In "Banner" Krakauer details the Mormon religion and more specifically Fundementalist Mormon's and their lock on polygomy and rampant inscest as a consequence. Due to this topic I have officially read the most vomitous passage ever (cover your eyes):

"Even more than in other fundamentalist Mormon groups, incest is a common practice among the Kingsboros (oops, sorry Johnny, Kingstons!). Clan leaders promote it to 'purify' the Kingston bloodline, and birth defects are rampant as a consequence. Genealogical researcher Linda Walker says that Kingston women have reported giving birth to 'BLOBS OF PROTOPLASM' [ed. note: wha??? friggin puke!!!], and 'having eight or nine pregnancies without ever giving birth to a living infant. The leaders of the clan of course blame this on the women, characterizing it as punishment for their sinful behavior.'"

Excuse me while I clean up the roush all over my keyboard...
