I got there via RMN Blog, the blog of the Reconciling Ministries Network. And in the process I saw in passing an article that caused me to think some very, very, very uncharitable thoughts.
Q: My 10-year-old son is acting like a girl. I beat him almost every day for this. People tell me he is going to be gay and that it doesn't matter how I beat him since the female hormones will be there because the Lord made him that way. I am planning to send him to his father in Kingston who says he can beat it out of him. What should I do? He is very bright in school.I really think that if I met this woman, I'd commit mayhem. And wouldn't regret it.
If I was a person given to prayer, I wouldn't pray for forgiveness for my wishes. I wouldn't even pray for forgiveness for her. But I'd pray long and hard for her child. There'd be no room for dealing with anything else. So if any of my readers believe in the power of prayer, please devote all your energies to this kid's welfare. My own sins I'll pay for later, and gladly, if this child can be saved from this most un-natural and sanctimonious mother's tender mercies.
To state the bleedin' obvious, I'm a long way from sainthood, aren't I?
