  •  Bravo, irishwitch. I would gladly sign my name (3+ / 0-)

    to this as well.  

    I, too, was incensed when I read that quote - that HE asked God to forgive THEM - ludicrous.

    If you send it and do seek additional signers, my full name is Roxine Renee' Behrens

      But it won't. I just needed to say it. Because if I didn't, I was being part of the problem by keeping silent.

      I want to thank you and Swedish Jewfish do.  I couldn't have sat through the Sandusky trial without hitting someone.

      I was one of the lucky ones. When I was 8, we were playing cowboys and I got captured and was "prisoner" in a treehouse. Except they used a real rope andthe 12 year old boy next door knew something about knots--they had mme hogtied with a nose around my neck.  The rest of the rope was out the window and held by a 6 year old who had no idea that the  douche was trying to undress me. Mind you I wasn't modest, but I didn't like the idea of someone making me undress.

      I screamed. I screamed VERY VERY LOUDLY. And the yards were postage stamps so someone's mother heard and told them to let me loose.

      He did. Likely because he was afraid she'd come over and he'd find out and his parents would be angry. And I was the one who got away.

      I have often wondered about Eugene, who was kind of a pre-adolescent Cartman, and just as obnoxious. I suspect he likely grew up to be a Peeping Tom, then progressed to date rape.  I like to think of him serving hard time.

      Some of us got away. I was one of the lucky ones.  FOr all the oens that didn't, I hope Mahoney and his pedophile priests suffer the tortures of the damned, if there's an afterlife.  If it's reincarnation (and I'm Wiccan so I lean that way), he'll be joining my Evil Ex-Brother-in-law as a rock, learning humility the hard way.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
