The column linked to infuriates me. I was a kid (A KID, as in powerless and helpless and with no choice and no voice) who was victimized by a Jerry Sandusky. To conflate a grown man who is MAYBE interested in other grown men with my experience makes me furious. It doesn't blow the potential attempt at an adult seducing other adults out of proportion; it entirely MINIMIZES what happens to real children who are really victimized. I bet Sandusky's actual victims would like to slap the moron columnist around. I certainly would. Jesus Christ, what the bloody fucking hell is wrong with people?

This shit -- especially the Barney Frank comment -- infuriates me. So I googled "Rick Santorum" just to click on spreadingsantorum.com. It's fallen from the #1 spot, y'all. Let's get clicking, shall we?

Listening to part 2 -- Michelle was estranged from her father for a long time, and had little to no contact with him. This marriage of theirs makes a lot more sense. Things are screwed up between me and my dad, too -- some of my dearest friends and most important mentors are older gay men, providing the father-figure stuff with a sense of safety because there's no sexual tension. She gets what she needs emotionally and Marcus gets a respectable closet.

@31 -- Yeah, that made me want to puke, too. Ryan Dobson is an obnoxious little worm who's been wealthy since his Daddy started getting gullible Christians to send money and selling lots of books about how to abuse children and animals. (Google James Dobson dog belt next time you need to throw up.)

Listening to part 2 today (same link) and Michelle's JD is from Oral Roberts University. ORU is all into the Charismatic tongues stuff. Jesus Camp. This woman is a more attractive Becky Fischer, the pastor in Jesus Camp. Thank Zeus she has no chance of getting elected.

@74: Biblical family values.

@49: Me too. Several friends told me this was going viral and warned me not to watch it. I already had by the time they told me, and I didn't even blink. My first thought was that his fellow Christians will come down on him for using the Lord's name in vain. I haven't been in my parents' home or part of their church (or any church) since my 18th birthday in 1996.

Typo. I meant "Parent beating minor" not "Parenting beating minor."

@35: I agree with you with one caveat. 16 is the age to be tried as an adult in most states. 16 and 17 year olds should weigh carefully if jail really is better than home. I decided home was easier and stuck it out to graduation (from my Christian high school). Others may come to different conclusions, but it bears consideration. Parenting beating minor = legal discipline in most places, under most circumstances. Minor beating parent = assault. Sad but true fact of life in America.

Here in the Bible Belt (literally), I promise you that the only troubling aspect to our local Christians is the swear words. This sort of "discipline" is very common in the South, and it takes current, present, active bruises PLUS the right cop responding in the right mood to get anything done about it.
Apr 13, 2011 HollyMc commented on SL Letter of the Day: Have At It, Gang.
He cheats on his wife with a "close family friend," through utter stupidity allows it to be discovered, and destroys two families. His 15 year old daughter reacts like a 15 year old girl and not like a 38 year old who's had a few years of therapy and read the oeuvre on nuanced understanding relationships (shocker). His response is that SHE should lose HER HOME, at least for the summers, HER friends, and HER entire social life/fun outlet (grounding) for a YEAR. How can anyone defend him as anything other than what he is -- a mental/emotional child abuse perpetrator at BEST? HE fucks up so SHE should lose everything because she reacted like a 15 year old girl experiencing the worst trauma of her life? And I'm another sexual assault survivor saying that what she's experienced, while not as bad as being raped, is in the ballpark. She could likely get over rape more easily. No one punishes you for being angry at your rapist, or confronting him the best way you know how. Certainly you don't risk losing a YEAR of your childhood to grounding as well as your HOME and your BEST FRIEND for speaking up.
