149. You may consider my position unreasonably pious...
Edited on Mon May-17-10 03:53 PM by rasputin1952
but that's the way I feel.

The same thing goes for you, or anyone else. If, one of your parents did heinous things, I would not hold you in any responsible, unless you were "of age" to cover up for any indignities perpetrated. To do so is immoral, and while you may find me "overly pious", most people I know are not so vindictive as to drag children into the fray. Would you ask for a "gene pool cleansing", or wipe the genetics off of the map because of a relation?

The children are not a part of the equation, unless, as I have stated, partook in any of the behavior that has made their father a despicable human being.

edit: typo.
