of the Hymers report from 1988 Money Quote:

[Other Newcaster]: “Phones have been ringing upstairs from people who have had a lot of contact with him. Good and bad, right?”

Anson: “Right, you know I expected a lot of angry phone calls from the story yesterday—angry phone calls from his current members. And there have been a couple of those, but the overwhelming response has been from other former members. Other members than you’ve seen in these two stories, and they confirm everything that the others talk about.”

Forgetting just for a moment the attack on my friend, it is of course natural for a son to defend his father. If one is going to do so perhaps one might consider using one’s head as the charming Roxeanne explains:

If this young man wants to be a lawyer, and has yet to be accepted to law school, he will have the joy of explaining this little entanglement with the legal system on every law school application that he fills out. When he sits for the bar exam and attempts to be licensed in a state, he must also disclose this, in sufficient detail to enable the Character and Fitness committees to determine if he should be set loose upon the country with the ability to practise law. None of those various procedures require one to disclose whether or not one’s father is a cult leader; however, every personal encounter with the legal system must be discussed.

Or as the Sage has tried to explain to Groo: Brains before swords.

Speaking of oddities, Cardinal of the Archdiocese of the Rightosphere? Well I am passing the collection plate a bit these days.

    Thank you for quoting me. :)

    Very interesting, and very telling, that most of the people who would call in to comment about a show on this “church” would be so against it.
