allegations. I can understand that in view of a pending lawsuit for sexual harassment, he would not want to admit to any misconduct. However, I think he went too far in his press conference. He said that while his behavior toward
women was inappropriate at times (an understatement), he “never sexually harassed anyone.” We will see how the lawsuit turns out.
Apparently, Bob Filner doesn’t know the definition of sexual harassment. He thinks that asking women not to wear panties to work is merely “trying to establish personal relationships.” Duh! I would say that is very personal. I wonder if it is too late for San Diego to get their money back for the “intensive therapy” sessions that Bob Filner went through. Did he pay for that?
Bob Filner went on to say that, none of the allegations has been “verified or proven in court.” He should have added, “Yet.” He blamed the media for the “lynch mob” hysteria that resulted in his resignation. There may be a little truth to that statement. He certainly was an easy target. Now blogger like me will have to find another pervert to blog about. Goodbye, Bob Filner and thanks for the entertainment. Now back to Anthony Weiner.
CNN reported that the Ridgedale Church of Christ booted the mother of a gay detective from the Tennessee church that she attended for decades. Apparently, the elders told Linda Cooper and two of her relatives that their public support for Kat Cooper, Linda’s gay daughter, went against the church’s teachings. The mother publicly supported her daughter’s marriage to a same sex partner. She was so bold as to sit by her daughter.
I guess the Church of Christ is not big on the forgiveness of sins. I am sure that if they ejected all the sinners from their church, there would be no church. They are also not big fans of parents supporting their kids with unconditional love. The church may recall the story of Jesus and the woman at the well. Jesus told her to go and sin no more. I don’t recall that he then threw stones at her parents. Of course, I wasn’t there.
