Filipina: Do You Want to "Purchase" a Wife?

This is from "Got porn? Check out the library" by Patrick Meighan (Nashua Telegraph, 3 August 2006):

...what might be pornographic to one patron might be valid research to another.

Case in point: Dionne recalls walking past a patron and seeing what he thought was pornography on a computer screen.

Dionne said he whacked the guy in the back of the head and told him, "Knock it off!"

The patron explained that he wasn’t looking at pornography, but was on a site where he could purchase a wife from the Philippines.

"I didn’t know what to say at that point," Dionne said. "Being an old Catholic, I was unfamiliar with the whole concept of purchasing a wife."
Catholic or not, I wouldn't have known what to say, either. I don't think religion has anything to do with this at all.
