Seriously twisted question, I know...
But you would be surprised at the responses you would get...
I always marvel at interviews with the mothers of serial killers, like Charles Manson, Ted Bundy just to name a few. They defend their darling son despite admissions of guilt to heinous hate crimes against humanity. A mother's love is like no other, but how can you defend this type of behaviour?
I was watching an interview with Ann Coulter, the controversial political right winger the other day and she was just saying stupid shit. By the end of the interview, she had ruined my entire day with her stupidity. I googled her and saw countless youtube clips of her being an idiot and I thought to myself, "how could someone love this dumb broad?" Not a husband, not a son/daughter and certainly if I were her father, I would be ashamed to call her my daughter.
There comes a point in life where people become a drain on society. If your son or daughter were the terror of the world like a Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Mousolini, or other notables, how could you look their victims in the eye and defend your child, when they have done so much damage?
I know that it must be heartbreaking, but I would have to step out of my endearment and love for my child and realize that you cannot defend or love someone who is such a monster. Period.
What do you think?
