"The Bible says to let a secret between friends die with you. You make it your business to keep your mouth shut."

"The Bible says to let a secret between friends die with you. You make it your business to keep your mouth shut." Perhaps they missed the part about the Bible not recommending you kill your three year old. (Sorry if someone already posted this, but I went back to the 14th, and saw no mention of it, so here it is now.) This really isn't the kind of thing I know how to comment on, but I thought it needed mentioning. It supposedly has something to do with email snooping, but I haven't been able to find out how.

Yeah... ain't it great how a verse or two can be twisted by someone to be used for their selfish purposes?

On the plus side, the Big House likes it when people go in for doing bad stuff to kids....

That's where real "Justice" happens, heh heh....

That is really sick and appalling, that two people could do such a monstrous thing and then cite bible verses in an attempt to justify keeping their secret. People like that don't deserve to walk the streets with the rest of us.

Let's try to be objective about this. People are so quick to jump to conclusions in cases like this. Maybe this was a really bad kid.

No kid deserves what was described in that article.

Internook, I see no reason to be "objective about this." I fail to see it even as a possibility. What do you gain by posturing and bandying about words like "objective"? How does it help you deal with a horror like this?

Maybe a more important question is: what do you lose? That comment was cold, internook, and callous, speciously imaginative. It sounds like you've watched too much television.

Imagine for a moment the *subject* of these crimes.

Well, I think Internook was kidding. Furthermore, while it may seem sick to some people, sometimes it's laugh or gibber like a chimp on benzedrine.

I personally laughed and gibbered, but that's just the special magic of me.

Amen, Internook!

I'm going to use this against my kids.

Certain things are never funny; child abuse, rape, and Lincoln's assination.

Other than that, how was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

Murder is never funny. The murder of a child even less so. Is there no limit to some people's shallowness of thought?

Is there no limit to some people's beliefs that they and they alone are the final arbiters of what may be allowed to be funny?

To quote my hero, George Carlin, sworn enemy of all that is politically-correct: "Sure rape can be funny. Picture Elmer Fudd getting butt-fucked by Daffy Duck!"

Hah! Made you all smirk... I saw it.

Hey. You are right. This isn't funny. However, my off-handed comment was hilarious. Subtle difference, local news watchers.
See how that works? Fucking Lincoln eating lead isn't funny."Other than that, how was the show Mrs. Lincoln?"... that comment is a gem.One day there will be too many people in the world and drastic measures will be necessary to ensure survival of the species. It will be my extreme pleasure to eat your brain.
