So I followed the link on someone’s blog to the
No Greater Joy site to see just how wacky these advocates of beating
your child with plumbing supply line might actually be (read more about these sickos here). And I made the
mistake of clicking on one of their articles about a "father’s greatest
responsibility to his daughter."
OK, I wasn’t too shocked to find it advocating "courtship" and what

But then it started in about the "critical questions" to ask your daughter’s suitor. Can you guess what they were?
"When was the last time you looked at pornography?"
"Have you ever had sexual contact with a female?"
"Have you ever had sexual contact with a male?"
"Have you ever had sexual contact with an animal?"
WTF?!?! And if that wasn’t enough, the author goes on to claim that
having sex with animals is not particularly uncommon among the hothouse

that is apparently producing a generation of goat-rapers? If there’s
any truth to this assertion, could it possibly stem from filling kids’
heads with the idea that sexual thoughts/behavior of any kind are
Horrible Sinful Bound-for-Hell Badnesses… thus morally equating
masturbation, French kissing and sheep-humping?
(…trying to imagine the look on DH’s face if my dad had asked him
if he’d ever had sex with an animal… trying to imagine the look on my
DAD’S face if someone had told him to ask DH-to-be if he’d ever had sex
with an animal…)
Now I need to go take a shower. A long, hot, purificational shower. Yecccchhh….
