Have a great weekend!
This made my day. Watch and enjoy!
If Sun News, which can’t even get my name right, wants to stick up for Bill Whatcott — a rifle-toting, anti-choice, anti-same-sex marriage, anti-legal divorce extremist who says he has a history of drug use, marriage failure and criminal activity — let ’em. Whatcott’s moral pronouncements are spectacularly wrong-headed and harmful, and defending them hurts Sun News’ credibility.
Also, check out the apparently misplaced comment on this blog post that popped up today. Hilarious!
Hat tip to my friend Murdle, the Bill Whatcott fan who made all this happen.

And, as the latest rampage killing demonstrates, not just the lives of the kids of the divorced couple. Perhaps they wouldn’t need more gun control if they had better divorce control.
Behind the deluded self-pity, it seems clear that Elliot Rodger was a lonely youngster starved for a father and shaken to the core by his parents’ divorce. A curious boy who had no one to talk to about the facts of life. A sick teenager who had no one to guide him through adolescent temptations
It’s a familiar story. Most of the men on the never-ending list of rampage killers in the Unites States came from homes where the parents were divorced or separated. Predictably, their own relationships were fraught as well.
Yikes. I hope most people recognize that this bullshit is part of an insane and terrifying worldview. Continue reading ““Outlaw Divorce, Not Guns”: Bill Whatcott”
