    ..the kind of English teacher who corrects other English teachers, but that's not a dangling participle, it's a misplaced modifier.  

    Fresh off the heels of essentially killing a woman in Ireland by refusing her a life-saving abortion after a miscarriage, a Minnesota teen is being denied confirmation because he expressed his support for marriage equality on Facebook.

      It was the church at fault in both instances.  Kewpie for you, Kathleen (and fie on the church)!
