Who was raised by religious fanatics?
“The 46-year-old singer confesses that for weeks afterward she was wracked with guilt, the result of growing up in a fanatically religious home where she was not allowed to wear pants, would be forced to fast for two weeks a time during Lent and was forbidden to go to the movies. Homework was usually neglected because children at the church where her parents worshiped were obliged to memorize 26 scriptures a week.”
I didn’t read the piece, but that Accutane was very, very bad with birth defects. If you use Accutan DON’T HAVE SEX.
I did read the article now, but I don’t have any more substantive comments to make,
but I did want to say I love that song “unbreak my heart”.
Sounds like her home had had little to do with love of the Lord and a lot to do with Pharisee type religion.
Those cottage cheese legs are punishment enough.
Actor Jim Caviezel’s Powerful Message on Abortion
There’s Christianity and then there’s disfunctionality. Her childhood sounds more like the latter.
Christianity is not Christianity when it’s inflicted as tyranny. That is a leftist technique....
True to my tagline, I didn't read it either, but the Doctors I know who prescribed accutane ran a pregnancy test before prescribing it to females, and also ordered birth control pills for those females who were sexually active while taking accutane.
Toni is a big Obama fan and one of those “if you disagree with Obama you must be racist” people. I don’t want to waste one minute of my precious time reading an article about her.
LOL,had to check back to read your tagline!
I usually do read the articles, but today I can’t - so your tagline is most amusing.
Abortion doesn’t only destroy the baby, it destroys the mother who knows she turned her womb into a tomb. Her parents gave her a conscience and she can’t get rid of it.
50 million women are living with the same guilt.
Pray America wakes up
Even though she is liberal and supports Obama, I am encouraged that she feels the way she does. It means she does have a conscience, and feels disturbed about her abortion. She doesn’t just think it was a clump of cells and a minor medical procedure akin to having a hangnail removed.
This is encouraging to hear that liberals who have undergone abortion can have their regrets.
She was taking Accutane for acne in her 30s? Or is there an off-label use?
