Shame is the number one cause of death in the US, followed closely by guilt. Heart disease a distant third.

re: And There Goes Joe Paterno's Legacy (130 comments)

I may be many things, but disingenuous I am not. I never once suggested the group was nebulous. You may know better than I the individuals responsible for preventing Law’s prosecution, but at the end of the day, it is a discrete group of people, whether acting alone or in concert with others. And I think you’re missing my real point. I’m not trying to make light of the Catholic church by calling it a “group of people.” I know full well the power it commands, and how far-reaching its grasp is. My point was simply that we need to hold people accountable as individuals, rather than focus on an institution they manipulate or hide behind. Religion doesn’t have to be pernicious, and it’s unfortunate that it becomes that way with the wrong people at the helm.

The “Catholic Church” is a group of people. And I’ll readily submit that some of those people have done bad things, including abusing children. But guess what? Atheists and agnostics have abused children as well. Bad people do bad things. You don’t have to be a member of a church to be corrupt, and being a member of a church doesn’t make you corrupt. If you’re upset that horrible people use religion to justify horrible conduct, that’s fine. So am I. Don’t blame the weapon; blame the person brandishing it.

You do realize that whether they are indecent and/or inhumane people has absolutely nothing to do with their religion. You can’t blame the religion for the shortcomings of its followers.

Whoa, now. Let’s be fair. I didn’t take apart your entire argument. As I remember, your original “argument” had three prongs. I chose to focus solely on the latter two. If I were going to take apart your ENTIRE argument, I would point out that Nancy Grace’s history as a prosecutor, and her concomitant “drive to win” as the impetus for her “attacking-style questions”, has absolutely no relationship with your central thesis. Which, if I can find it in that rambling mess above, is something along the lines of:

“Journalistically, Nancy Grace didn’t play a role in their deaths.”

While my mind struggles to fathom the brilliance of that sentence, I’m fairly certain Ms. “Sad Cunt” Grace’s history as a prosecutor, and her tenacious (you might say cunty? cuntish?) personality have absolutely nothing to do with it. Oops, I forgot to give any insights of my own again. Sorry.

Do they not have satire in the UK? So you think the tragic death of her child might have played a role in her decision to take her own life? Tremendous insight.

It’s “kinda skeezy” to imply Nancy Grace played a role in upsetting someone’s tenuous mental state? That she deliberately shamed people who were already shouldering enough guilt to consider forfeiting their lives? Really? But I guess it’s not “kinda skeezy” to refer to a woman as a “sad cunt?”
