Atoning For Daughter’s Satanic T-Shirt, Arizona Dad Sacrifices the Family Dog To God

This Yelling Christian Mother of 12 Leads Her Kids On a Hate Parade Through a Target Store

Not since watching the half-gutbusting, half-terrifying footage of “God Warrior” Marguerite Perrin have I felt this sorry for a Christian’s kids. And there’s a lot of them to be sorry for, because the anonymous woman in this brand new video has one dozen little and not-so-little darlings.

Her brood and husband in tow, she marches through a Target store as if she owns the place, waving her Bible and yelling about transgender people and about Target’s “perversion” in letting trans customers choose the bathroom that matches their gender identity.
