A Judge, A Misogynist and a Crotch (CNN Crotch Talk with Anderson Cooper and Misogynist Kathy Griffen)

Anyone who knows me knows that I have many problems with religion, on a continuum. Islam is at the far end of that continuum and the Protestant faith (not evangelical) at the other end. Both screw women in varying degrees. In her book Nomad, Ayaan Hirsi Ali reminds us that while the Prophet Muhammad didn’t invent polygamy he did for it (to followers of Islam) what Jesus did for Grace to his followers—namely made it a hugely popular belief in the culture. But when I came across an article in the Loopy NYTimes about the Left’s denouncement of a judge in Oklahoma after he’d sentenced a teen to go to church for 10 years on a regular basis after a deadly traffic accident, I thought, in the deepest part of me: not bad. Nothing bad can come of that.
The kid had been drinking but was not legally drunk when the accident occurred which left another teen, a passenger in his car dead. The judge demanded that the young man finish high school, train as a welder, abstain from drugs, alcohol and cigarettes for a period of not less than one year. This was done to avoid a 10-year prison sentence he’d otherwise incur if he didn’t agree to those terms. My guess is that the judge had also set strict observational requirements on the young man to be certain he adhered to the conditions. And, I thought: the worse we might get out of this is a kid who grows up believing that abortion is a moral wrong, if the kids goes to an evangelical church in the South. The best we might get is a kid who grows up with the training and culture to avoid costing the taxpayers tons of money and who will not kill again. The kid, who already had been attending church with his family before the accident, fully agreed to the sentence.
I have to say, it is very hard for me to see the wrong in this. But….the Left has a problem and the Times undoubtedly does to, because of the way they wrote the story. I am not a Constitutional lawyer, as our president who finds if highly Constitutional (cough, sputter and gag) to order assassinations of America citizens he doesn’t like, but this seems to me a pretty good deal. (The parents of the dead passenger in the car, hugged the youth in court after his sentencing.)
And only those who agree to the terms can be sentences thusly. The Times said the ACLU had a big problem with this and what I find most disturbing is how the Left has gone off the deep end in what the find noble and engaging in cultural immersion for our kids as evidence by CNN’s continual open invite to Kathy Griffen who this year, went down on Anderson Cooper on Live TV on CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage…as my neighbor’s pre-teen son sat in the room with us was watching! It was terrible.
Now I ask you, who should be ruled unconstitutional? I get it, I really do, free speech, and separation of Church and State and all that. But what are we doing? Really? I don’t suggest that we outlaw Griffen’s horrific free speech, nor that we sentence criminals to attend a church the do not wish to attend, but where are we going with this? At what cost? Why do I feel this way in my heart so strongly that the Judge is a force of good and Griffen is just helping America circle the drain. And yes, we do have a Deathwatch on Griffin for her very very misogynistic behaviour in the past.
Can you imagine Kathy Griffen calling the Obama girls whores and bitches? Can you image her calling Barack a nigger boy? All because they happen to have different political views than your own. If that is the case, why not call an anti-choice black men nigger boys?
If you believe in free speech you’d have to defend Griffen’s right to do so, but that shouldn’t prevent you from putting out a media Deathwatch on her career in the public light.
