In a controversial case that involved the rights of illegal immigrants and their young children, a Guatemalan mother lost her effort today to get back the five-year old son who was taken away from her after her arrest on immigration charges and put up for adoption in Missouri despite her objections.

fucken disgraceful. How does this happen in the modern era? No one should have the right to take away someones child just for politics sake. The judge should hang his head in shame and everyone involved should be charged with kidnapping.

And cods is stupid enough to think, despite my use of the word “dystopia,” that I approve of Gilead. Stupid and vile old bitch!

Monk, you are a good man with a tremendous amount of respect for women. I hope you aren't hurt by Cods' nasty words. I know exactly your thoughts and feelings on the profoundly significant themes raised by this show and they are compassionate and entirely appropriate.

It was a cheap shot by Cods ... made with ignorance to do nothing more than wound.

I hope my opinion weighs more heavily on you. It is certainly more informed.

I imagine you will use it to cause pain, discord and hostility.

I feel very sorry for you that such things inspire you. It's doing you absolutely no favours.

No, I was just angry that she made that cheap shot, especially as we had a fair bit of email correspondence so she would know Gilead is not my ideal!
