Praise the Lord and Pass the Polygraph {Dr. Phil Show}

April 25, 2008

Confronting GrandpaEven though the content of today’s show registered high on the creep-me-out meter, I sucked it up and watched the second part of the child molestation story. Parker (a 12 year old child molester) is not at fault for being born to a mother (Sherry-Lynn) who was molested by a crazy, Bible thumping father (Al). Parker’s grandmother admitted that she should have gone to jail for not protecting Sherry-Lynn (duh), and her lack of awareness was unforgivable (double-duh). Al insisted that he is not a pedophile because he’s not molesting right now. By that logic, a bank robber is not a bank robber if he is not robbing a bank right now. Al referred to his blood relations being important, but Dr. Phil didn’t pick up on the implications of that phrase. I used to work at a shelter for battered women and children and I remember a woman telling me that her Uncle (a preacher) felt he could do what he wanted to do his “relations.” (Ironically, this man also beat his children with an extension cord) Within this warped view, Al is guilty only if he is molesting people outside his family. However, the polygraph revealed that Al’s proclamations of innocence were “deceptive.” Welcome to the real world, Al; maybe this summer you can teach that Bible class after all–in prison!

Call me a wimp, but I could not stomach the content of the Dr. Phil show today (Child Molestation). I’m just thankful that Dr. Phil listened to these guests and I give everyone who watched this episode a lot of credit. You are braver than I am. I’m ready to watch some Dr. Phil Lite!
