Well, at least she didn’t have gay parents…
A mother was arrested on suspicion of murdering her newborn daughter by putting the baby in a microwave oven. China Arnold, 26, was jailed Monday on a charge of aggravated murder, more than a year after she brought her dead month-old baby to a hospital.
“We have reason to believe, and we have some forensic evidence that is consistent with our belief, that a microwave oven was used in this death,” said Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County coroner’s office.
He said the evidence included high-heat internal injuries and the absence of external burn marks on the baby, Paris Talley.
To those who object to these occasional posts, I quote once again blogger Pam Spaulding, who has posted similar tales of horrific hetero child abuse at Pam’s House Blend. Says Pam…
None of these horrifying cases has anything to do with heterosexuality, of course. But there is no call to regulate the rights of straight folks to have children based on the fact that some heterosexuals, clearly do not deserve to be anywhere near a child. One cannot judge a person’s character or ability to care for and love a child based on orientation alone, but that’s exactly what goes on in many states where the rights of gays and lesbians are constantly under attack when it comes to their ability to adopt of foster children who need loving homes.
So long as attacks on gay parents continue, these posts will continue. I took my kid snowboarding this weekend. I refrained, despite temptation, from popping him into a microwave oven. Yet there are people who would argue that I, being a homo, should forever be barred from parenting. Kinda fucked up, no?
