Janet Parshall of the Fascist Religious program, Janet Parshall's America, I guess because the nation she describes on her show is one that only exists in her mind, was invited onto the most banal and inane hour of TV: Larry King Live (but not thinking). After coming frightfully close to justifying the murder of Matthew Shepherd
Was he, in fact, coming -- and this is no way, shape, or form, a justification of what happened because it was wrong, wrong, and wrong. Let there be no ambiguity there.
But, in reality, I understand that Matthew was somewhat of a person who hung around some of the gay bars and was coming on to some people. So, was he looking for trouble in all the wrong places (Media Matters)?
How could we get you wrong? You apparently think looking for a date could naturally lead to being savagely beaten and left to die. Why didn't he realize that two homophobic people would pick him up, rob, beat, murderer him? After all, he must have known that people like you, Pat Robertson, the Catholic and Baptist Churches... the Klan and numerous Republican politicians justify murder based on homophobia from being classified as the act of terrorism (hate crime) it it!
The she said this:
I think when two people of the same sex get together and they decide to use the moniker of a marriage, I think it's a grotesque misrepresentation, and actually, if that union decides that they want to then adopt children 'cause biology says they can't create children, then I think what you have in many respects is state-sanctioned child abuse because you've purposely taken away either a momma or a daddy, and mom and dad are both necessary in a child's life (Media Matters [emphasis added]).
Is the bitch crazy? I thought she had a screw loose when she put her fingers in her ears and refused to listen to Randi Rhodes on C-span, but the more I hear from this crazy lady the more I realize she is just a lunatic.
So, Janet, it child abuse to give a child two parents and not child abuse to deny them any parents? NAIC (National Adoption Information Clearinghouse) disagrees (Read their Fact Sheet Here). 'Nuff said.
