Family Is Not a Norman Rockwell Painting, Christians: Man kept dead mom in freezer for 3 years, cashed her Social Security checks: cops

Kentucky man kept dead mom in freezer for 3 years, cashed her Social Security checks: cops

Well my fellow social conservatives, and you evangelical Christians out there, so much for “family being the backbone of society” or the “bedrock of,” or whatever, as you so often claim.

Families do not always resemble the 1940-50s Norman Rockwell paintings, June Cleaver TV warm- and- fuzziness you Christians keep insisting it does. Some families are very abusive, physically or emotionally.

The Bible teaches that people are supposed to look to JESUS CHRIST for salvation, not “THE FAMILY” (as in the nuclear family).

Christians: Stop making “family” INTO AN IDOL. Stop making motherhood, parenthood, marriage INTO IDOLS.

    Jon Whiteford shot himself to death in March when local authorities showed up at his southern Kentucky home to ask about his missing mother. Cops say he kept the 96-year-old’s body on ice after she died in 2011.

    A Kentucky man kept his dead mother’s body in a freezer for nearly three years while he cashed her Social Security checks and then killed himself when authorities came to investigate, authorities said.

    Jon Whiteford shot himself in the head March 29 in front of a Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputy who had arrived at the Science Hill home where he was staying to ask about his missing mom, authorities said.

    The decaying body of Faye Whiteford was found about a month later at an abandoned home in neighboring Wayne County.

    An autopsy found she had died of natural causes in 2011 at age 96.
