Frankly, I’d think if there was going to be mental illness screening it should be for those who want to give birth! So being an insane mother is okay, but being sane is required to get an abortion? Wow, that explains damn near the entire Republican Party!

But it’s safe to say that somewhere in there he decided his beliefs took precedence over logic. And the faith of his victims surely made them easier targets.  “…a prosecutor told jurors that Anthony Hopkins terrorized his wife and young children, isolated them and used the Bible to manipulate them.” Of course he did, that’s pretty much all the Bible – and other religious books – are good for, and why they’re invented.

See if this works!
