  1. Anne Paulk: Have A 'Healthy Detachment' From Your Gay Son

    This kind of attitude reminds me of the regimes of Stalin and Mao, which also called upon their subjects to distance themselves from family members who went against the "sacred" ideology.

    What a malignant thing Christianity is. How many family relationships, which would have gone on undisturbed in pagan times, have been destroyed by this kind of thinking?

    1. Infidel -- People like Paulk are callous, and they should know better. For all its lofty rhetoric about family, fundamentalism destroys plenty of families.
