Re: Oops, sorry- I think I figured out what you are saying

Now, I can only speculate what our good correspondent Jim G.M. was doing in his piece on Collins, who, though a minister, seemed unfamiliar with Leviticus. Was he -- jim, I mean, -- leviticussing with us?


Take a "Darcy is gay" topic (using a modernism) suggested by M'sieur Redson. Spoof it. Charlotte dreams, Mr Collins, in the best Collins manner, bumblingly obliges with nonsensical understanding, over-intense morality and insultingly patronising head-patting towards his wife. Charlotte can't use a non-existent "gay" term (at least not in that context) so she uses a word that isn't over macho in said context. Can't use "homosexual" not yet a recognised term, can't use crass terms such as sodomy or buggery that Charlotte wouldn't use: Living in Meryton, then Hunsford, where the only seas are those of grass, she may well have had little to do with naval matters ( a well recognised area of male er, romance) and thus remain purposely ignorant of such things unless rumours of hanky-panky amongst the local militia caused scandal.. What to do? Mr Collins, being an Anglican/C.of E minister, may well not agree with Mr Redson's Bible-student conclusions, it being two-hundred years ago back in time, when things got more goggling then Googling, and may go with the King James common views, therefore, use the biblical Leviticus as something Charlotte can handle by just being Charlotte and Mr Collins as a minister can probably recite word for word in his sleep. Problem solved. (-:
