“I don’t own my child’s body” is a clever mask for something cruel

Vacuous, toffee-nosed, malodorous pervert Donald Trump opened his festering gob and said of John McCain:“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured."So the Huffington Post said this: After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our En … [Read more...]

"Eternally hunkered down in a panic room." That's how one psychologist describes  the interior lives of people who are sexually attracted to prepubescent children.Who could pity a pedophile? Of all the crimes in the world, child abuse rightly seem unforgivable.  "It would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." That's what Christ said about people who hurt little children.But that's how we feel about people who act … [Read more...]
