Names withheld on this first one, for reasons that are immediately obvious – A guy just found out that he married his sister, on their wedding anniversary, after they had three kids together. Both parents are the children of lesbians who had them using sperm donors, and while his wife knew who her father was, he never bothered to find that out. So as a sort of anniversary gift, he did check it out and Yep, you guessed it, same donor.
Pope Benedict’s post-papal plans is that he will go on living with Georg Gaenswein, his longtime (and handsome) personal secretary at the Vatican, even as Gaenswein serves the new pope. Daily Dish blogger Andrew Sullivan has come out stating that the soon-to-be ex-pope and Gaenswein are homosexual lovers, and hey, they do have a really unusual living arrangement, ya know?
Pedophile killer Marc Dutroux of Belgium was denied conditional release from prison Monday, to no one’s real surprise. Even his mother opposed his release, saying he would just do it again. Dutroux kidnapped 6 teenage girls, raped them, murdered 2 outright and left 2 others to starve tp death in a dungeon.
In the Maldives, a little island chain in the Indian Ocean, which is unfortunately Islamic, a 15 year old girl has been sentenced to 100 lashes for having sex before marriage. It seems that her stepfather raped her, and in the course of the police investigation she admitted to having sex with a man other than her stepfather. The stepfather had made her pregnant and then killed the baby, so it looks like he’s going to prison for 25 years for the repeated rapes and killing if he’s convicted, while she will wait until she’s 18 to be lashed.
“Amnesty International said the punishment was “cruel, degrading and inhumane,” while the Maldivian government didn’t agree with the sentencing and is considering changing the law, the BBC reports.”
I hope they do it before she turns 18.
