    already can't stand the SOB.

    Using your own child's family distress a rhetorical device to rationalize policy? Easy to see who wins the asshole award in that family.

    And discussing your minor child's or your teenage grandchild's sexuality, or sexual behavior, or their beliefs about sexuality, is really an extra special invasion of privacy.

    It was clearly intended to humiliate the whole family.

      He is supporting legislation to make it harder to get a divorce, right?

          These fundies just cannot keep their private lives private.  It's as if they are always on some kind of religious confession tour.

            It has special historical relevance for me. (Sorry I can't be more explicit)

            Compulsive confession tour is right.

            And that was why candidate Murdock told us that he had actually "wrestled with it" when he decided that a rape from pregnancy was God's special gift to a woman.

              upset you.  

              I do find that it's usually pretty easy to figure out where these fundies are coming from.  They live in a little world where everyone knows everyone's business and forgiveness is a very big deal...of course talking about all the stuff which has to be forgiven is the best part.

            had taken the question seriously, (as if that was somehow shameful, to consider the question seriously).
