Pennsylvania Woman Accused of Murdering Her Elderly Parents and Dismembering Them with an Electric Chainsaw – The Nuclear Family Doesn’t Fix Society or Make People More Ethical

Pennsylvania Woman Accused of Murdering Her Elderly Parents and Dismembering Them with an Electric Chainsaw – The Nuclear Family Doesn’t Fix Society or Make People More Ethical

For the record, I am a conservative who is not anti-Nuclear-Family, but I reject the usual conservative obsession with promoting the Nuclear Family constantly.

Just because Democrats are anti-Nuclear Family Marxists does not make it acceptable for conservatives to turn the Nuclear Family into an idol.

Two wrongs do not make a right.

Being in a Nuclear Family did not make this woman more godly, responsible or loving. Being married with children did not keep this elderly couple safe.

A 42-year-old Utah man gunned down seven family members, including his five children between ages 4 and 17, then turned the gun on himself — two weeks after his wife had filed for divorce, authorities said.

Officials in Enoch City on Thursday identified the suspected gunman in the murder-suicide as 42-year-old Michael Haight, and the victims as his wife, Tausha Haight, 40, their three daughters, ages 17, 12 and 7, and two sons, ages 7 and 4.

Also killed was Tausha Haight’s mother, 78-year-old Gail Earl, according to a press release from the Enoch City government. Each of the victims appeared to have gunshot wounds.

Court records showed wife Tausha had filed for divorce from Michael on Dec. 21, but it was not immediately known why she had sought to end their marriage.

Married Father Intentionally Drives His Wife and Children Off Cliff to Murder Them – The Nuclear Family Doesn’t Make People More Loving or Responsible

Married Father Intentionally Drives His Wife and Children Off Cliff to Murder Them – The Nuclear Family Doesn’t Make People More Loving or Responsible

This Nuclear Family didn’t make society any more upstanding, moral, or compassionate.

Being married or a parent didn’t make this man in this news story loving, ethical, responsible, godly, and if any mental illness drove him to do this, then being a married father obviously didn’t keep him in his right mind.

Conservatives should stop over-promising the so-called benefits of marriage, parenting, and The Nuclear Family, just as much as far left liberals need to shut up about discouraging people from having families of their own (ie, getting married and becoming parents).

The driver of a Tesla that plunged 250 feet off a notorious California cliff Monday has been arrested — after authorities say he intentionally drove over the edge with his wife and two children inside the car.

Dharmesh Patel, a 41-year-old physician from Pasadena, will be booked on attempted murder and child abuse charges once he is out of a hospital, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement.

…Patel, his wife, Neha, and their children — a 7-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy — miraculously survived after the electric car careened off the notoriously perilous part of the Pacific Coast Highway known as the “Devil’s Slide” about 10:50 a.m. Monday.

The vehicle apparently flipped several times before coming to rest on its wheels.

…Several neighbors of the Patels were shocked to hear of the crash and subsequent arrest.

Couple Are Seen Happily Enjoying Christmas Dinner Together – Three Days Before Wife is Arrested and Charged with Stabbing Husband to Death

Being married didn’t guarantee health or happiness (or being responsible, ethical, and loving) for this couple (you may already know this, but a lot of my fellow conservatives are way too enamored of marriage, parenthood, and the nuclear family to the point they hype it to an unrealistic degree and love to repeat inaccurate studies which purport to show that singles die younger than marrieds or are less happy, etc):

But three days after what their daughter described as the ‘the best day’, Mr Hanson, 54, was found dying from a stab wound by police. His wife was later charged with his murder.

Man Attacks His 70 Year Old Father While Visiting to “Reconnect,” Breaks the Dad’s Ribs and Some Teeth

Man Attacks His 70 Year Old Father While Visiting to “Reconnect,” Breaks the Dad’s Ribs and Some Teeth

I believe this took place in the UK (it’s from a British paper).

Does the Nuclear Family, or being in one, make a person more godly, ethical, mature, or responsible? Nope.

Does being a Father protect this man from getting his ribs broken – nope, they were broken by his own son.

I am fine with parenthood and the Nuclear Family, but not with the nauseating non-stop push by other conservatives to keep making more out of it than warranted. The Nuclear Family, marriage, parenthood will not “save” a nation, nor does the Bible teach that they will, any verses about children being a blessing included.

Children being a blessing doesn’t convey that natalism will “fix” immorality in a rotting culture, or that every single child will turn out to be a loving, responsible citizen.

The Bible makes no such promises.

Not all children ‘trained up’ (Proverbs 22:6) will turn out okay, as that one Bible verse states. Such bits of wisdom in the Old Testament are not meant to be applicable to each and every person and situation; we’ve all seen exceptions.

A lot of parents “train up” their children in the wrong way, by abusing or neglecting them, and in some such cases, those children, due to the mistreatment, later develop abusive natures or personality disorders or styles (such as BPD or pathological narcissism) that results in them abusing other adults in their lives.

A man attacked his dad, 70, with a casserole dish whilst visiting him to ‘reconnect’.

Peter Taylor, 43, from Leicester, was drunk on whisky as the two men had discussed money.

His father had previously lent him £100 and, after discussing the cash, then asked his son to leave.

But Taylor, a playground supervisor, then flung a small dining table across the flat and launched an attack on the pensioner sat in his chair.

Leicester Crown Court heard how his dad was knocked to the floor.

Taylor then continued to punch the older man and picked up a casserole dish to use as a weapon.

University Hosts ‘Abolish the Family’ Book Talk – Progressives are in Error to Be Opposed to the Nuclear Family Just as Much as Conservatives are in Error for “Over” Promoting It

University Hosts ‘Abolish the Family’ Book Talk – Progressives are in Error to Be Opposed to the Nuclear Family Just as Much as Conservatives are in Error for “Over” Promoting It

Both Progressives and Conservatives hold some incorrect attitudes or feelings about or towards The Nuclear Family.

I’m a conservative.

I can see how too many conservatives have put far too much emphasis upon The Nuclear Family (as well as upon parenthood, marriage, and natalism) to an unhealthy degree, to the point they marginalize or shame any adult who remains single (or childless) into their 30s and older, which is wrong.

The Bible does NOT hold The Nuclear Family (or marriage, natalism) up to the insane degree that so many Christians and secular conservatives do. Secular and religious conservatives have turned parenthood, marriagehood, children, and The Nuclear Family into idols.

On the other hand, the Bible is not opposed to parenthood, marriage, or The Nuclear Family.

Bible or not, I myself am not against parenthood, marriage, or The Nuclear Family and don’t see a good reason to be opposed to any of them.

So I don’t take kindly to any progressive person or group who runs around shaming anyone for being married with children, or for wanting to marry and/or have children, or for promoting arguments insisting that The Nuclear Family should be altogether abolished.

I also do not agree with or support Marxism, either. A lot of this anti-Nuclear Family garbage by leftists is usually under-girded by their promotion of Marxism, identity politics, state control, etc.

Sophie Lewis, an author and professor, spoke at UMass Boston on November 16 to discuss her book “Abolish the Family: A Manifesto for Care and Liberation.”

Lewis is a faculty member at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research where she “teaches courses on feminist, trans and queer politics and philosophy.”

“Abolish the Family” suggests that the nuclear family is racist and sexist.

Her scholarship also argues that children should have more say in healthcare choices such as gender transitions.

Ideas from “Abolish the Family: A Manifesto for Care and Liberation” stem from utopian socialist and sex radical Charles Fourier, communist family abolitionist Alexandra Kollontai, feminist Shulamith Firestone, and “queer marxists bringing family abolition to the twenty-first century” according to Verso Books.

Lewis’ book suggests that “Nobody is more likely to harm you than your family.”

Indiana Man Sentenced to 70 Years for Torturing His Four Year Old Son to Death

Does parenthood make society better, or make adults into better, more ethical, loving, responsible, mature, or godly, as so many social conservatives maintain? No, no it does not.

The mother of this kid also sounds like a total piece of garbage; one of the articles says she was also a child (and animal) abuser.

…According to the charging documents, Judah would be sent to the basement for not being potty-trained, where he would then be neglected and abused for days at a time.

At Tuesday’s sentencing, the forensic pathologist who did Judah’s autopsy says this was one of the worst cases of blunt force trauma to a child he’s seen in his almost 30 year career.

The lead investigator from the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department testified about surveillance camera footage from Alan’s phone that captured extensive physical abuse and strangulation of Judah in the last five days of his life.

“One of the most tragic cases that I’ve had personally,” said Det. Jacob Koch. “I feel for the family and everything they’ve gone through this last year, and I’m glad that justice was served today.”

The father of Judah Morgan, 4, previously pleaded guilty to murdering his son in Oct. 2021. Court records claim his wife kicked and beat another child in the home.

…Surveillance footage from inside the home captured the afternoon of October 6, 2021 showed Yoder, 27, grabbing one of her sons by the arm and throwing him onto the floor court records show.

Once the child was on the floor, Yoder was seen kicking him and grabbing his arm once again. She was then seen yanking him toward the side of the couch, at which point the child fell back onto the floor.

Yoder was seen kicking him several more times before the child got up, and ran crying to his bedroom at the end of the hall, according to court records.

House of horrors 
Court documents show Morgan and Yoder had a kitchen fridge with a cord attached to a key-style lock, “so no one could open it,” detectives said in an affidavit.

Filth, garbage and animal feces were found throughout the home. Investigators also discovered a starving dog in a cage.

More disturbing, though, was what police reportedly found in the basement.

A mom who stabbed to death her three young children inside their home lost her mind during Victoria’s hard lockdowns.

Katica ‘Katie’ Perinovic, 42, murdered her children Claire, 7, Anna, 5, and Matthew, 3 one by one before taking her own life inside their Tullamarine home, north-west of Melbourne, on January 14, 2021.

Their father Tom Perinovic, who had been out buying his family a new television set when the atrocity happened, has revealed how Dan Andrews’ lockdowns turned his happy and healthy wife into a monster.

…Trapped within the four walls of her Tullamarine house, Mr Perinovic pinpointed the lockdown as the event that drove his wife to madness.

‘Katie had stopped working in March 2020 and was looking after her three children and trying to home school Claire at the same time,’ Mr Perinovic said.

‘It was incredibly stressful and hard on both of us, particularly Katie.’

Victorians spent a whopping 262 days under hard lockdown between March that year and the end of 2021.

Thanksgiving Horror: Family Members Arrive at Relatives’ Home for Holiday Gathering, Discover Husband Had Dismembered and Disemboweled His Wife, Police Say

Thanksgiving Horror: Family Members Arrive at Relatives’ Home for Holiday Gathering, Discover Husband Had Dismembered and Disemboweled His Wife, Police Say

My, my, my. If nothing else undercuts the hyper- marriage- and nuclear family propaganda spewed by my fellow conservatives, this sure does.

This woman was married – did being married bring her happiness, joy, or peace? Nope. She is very dead – killed by her looney husband.

Did being married make this husband more ethical, sane, godly, mentally healthy, or responsible? Nope, it sure did not.

If you’re a single adult disappointed to be age 35 or older and still single (when you had expected marriage), just remember, there ARE worse things than being  single – like being married to a dementia-addled dirtbag who literally cuts you apart dead, for your relatives to discover.

Police said they received a report on Nov. 17 that a toddler was alone in a Charleston apartment complex after Gekonge, the child’s father, had sent a text saying he was away in New York, WCBD reported.

When the apartment managers could not contact anyone inside the apartment, an “emergency walk-through” was carried out, cops said.

The child, 2, was found sleeping on a bed in the living room, police said.

Woman Allegedly Drowns 93-Year-Old Grandmother in Kitchen Sink, Bathtub to Dodge Nursing Home Bills

Woman Allegedly Drowns 93-Year-Old Grandmother in Kitchen Sink, Bathtub to Dodge Nursing Home Bills

Who will take care of you when you get old? Your children? Your grandchildren? Don’t be ridiculous, they won’t visit you in the nursing home, let alone take care of you, and some of them, like the granddaughter below, may drown you.

How about those Family Values, huh?

I can imagine if you’re a conservative who is new to my blog here, you may at first glance assume I’m a nuclear family hating liberal, when in reality, I am not opposed to the nuclear family, I’m a conservative,
but boy, do I ever see a lot of news headlines over the years that blows a hole in the conservative propaganda that marriage, parenthood, and the nuclear family will repair a sick culture, or that marriage and parenthood can make a person more godly, mature, loving, or ethical.

Being a part of a nuclear family sure as heck didn’t make this woman more loving or godly.
She killed her own grandmother – who was a great person by her own admission – because she didn’t want to raise the funds to put grandma in a nursing home at doctor’s advisement.

Killing grandma to save a buck. Lord Jesus. RIP to the grandmother.

“According to the confession, she was just tired of taking care of a grandmother,” Eaton Police Division Chief Steven Hurd said, according to WDTN.

The granddaughter was worried that she could not afford the cost of the nursing home and insurance would not pick up the tab, according to a police report obtained by the television station.

A man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after he pushed his pregnant wife off a cliff so he could collect a life insurance policy.

…He had lured his wife – who was afraid of heights – to the edge of the 304-meter cliff on the pretense of taking a selfie, but then pushed her over.

A court heard how he committed the horrific act, which took place in June 2018, amid a twisted plot where he took out life insurance on her behalf worth $25,000, which he quickly claimed after her death.
