Medical director accused of harassing woman she called "homewrecker"
Houston Chronicle ^ | December 4, 2013 | Todd Ackerman

Posted on 12/05/2013 5:09:35 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

The medical director of Ben Taub Hospital's Emergency Center has been charged with criminal trespass and harassment, accused of threatening a woman she labeled a "homewrecker."

[snip]

The woman, warned by Siler-Fisher's husband that his wife was en route to the house, departed with her children before the doctor arrived, according to the charge. The charge also said surveillance video showed Siler-Fisher entering the home by kicking in the doggy door.

The woman told police that Siler-Fisher called twice to threaten her during the drive, using profanity and vulgar language. She also said the doctor tweeted her 25 text messages, one showing a photo inside the home, between Sunday and Monday morning.

Siler-Fisher could not be reached for comment.

Baylor issued a statement saying, "We understand that this is a private matter for Dr. Fisher and does not impact her work at Baylor College of Medicine."

The woman involved is a director of a prestigious Emergency Medical Center at Ben Taub Hospital and Baylor College of medicine. It’s part of a pattern of wigged out crazy women being put in charge of many of our sensitive government and private sector posts and driving these agencies into the ground. Kathleen Sebelius is another prime example! It is newsworthy!

OK, here’s the hard hit: sexual infidelity is a killing matter, which is why it has always been strictly regulated both in custom and in law.

Not only is infidelity now “normal” in our culture, but the normal, human responses to it are stigmatized or even criminalized.

And here I thought I was giving everyone a break from years of posting news about how our Republic is crumbling apart by posting a story about how our society is broken -- systematic of the bigger picture (and comment about how an institution like Baylor would put out such a blase comment on this "incident").

Get back to us when the number of "wigged out crazy women" exceeds the number of "wigged out crazy men."

At least insofar as they act out their craziness. My impression is women still have a way to go to catch up.

Perhaps I should have added “LIBERAL crazy wigged out women”. The back pedaling of the US not allowing commercial air liners over the disputed regions in the East Pacific which leaves Japan hanging in the wind suggests a liberal woman’s decision making process...ie Valerie Jarret or Suzanna Rice(a pale inferior version of Condoleeza Rice)!

First of all, there is nothing funny about infidelity. According to people who actually study it, it can be as horrible as getting raped or losing a child. One woman who had had both occur says it was worse than both.

It generally has nothing to do with the innocent spouse and everything to do with the cheating one being somehow broken or damaged inside. It takes up to five years to recover from this betrayal and some never really do recover.
I have heard people saying “if she had taken better care of him at home he wouldn’t have strayed”. That is blaming the victim for being attacked and absolving the attacker for his crime. In fact studies have shown that it is the person who contributes the least to the marrriage who is the most likely to cheat.

Most people who have never had it happen to them can be very judgemental about what they would do, but you never know until you are personally in that awful situation.

I find it disheartning that this assault on marriage and family is not taken seriously by our nation. But this seems to be another way the progressives are lowering the morality we as a nation originally agreed upon and damaging us to the point of no return. Intact families are what our nation was formed on and what gives us strength. Without them we have lost a part of our foundation and without a foundation we fall.

On that note, there was an interesting item in the WSJ in the last few days about why there are more psychopathic CEOs today than in times past. Unfortunately the full item is behind the pay wall.

“My impression is women still have a way to go to catch up”

Queen Jezebel, Delilah, Katharine of Russia, Bloody Mary, Hillary Rodham,Madilyn Murray O’Hare, Debbie Shultz(the Dem party is broke under her leadership) ect.

Women are the leading initiators of divorces... we can argue over cause.

I’d say the women have all caught up, and in spades.

Both Adam AND Eve were sent out of the garden;when things get added up in the Final judgment, part of what will be revealed will be just how much women were complicit in the evils of the ages, even if social conventions of the eras kept such evils from women from being “explicitly” revealed!

Read the story of Jezebel and her fostering of Baal worship upon the nation of Israel and her slaughter of the Godly prophets...King Ahab allowed her free reign over the social fabric of the nation. Then contrast and compare with some of the social pronouncements of say....Margaret Sanger, Hillary Rodham, Kathleen Sebelius. Do you now get the idea?

Finally I give you this: Zechariah 5:5 Then the angel who was speaking to me came forward and said to me, “Look up and see what this is that is appearing.” 6 I asked, “What is it?” He replied, “It is a measuring basket.” And he added, “This is the iniquity of the people throughout the land.” 7 Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman! 8 He said, “This is wickedness,” and he pushed her back into the basket and pushed the lead cover down over its mouth. 9 Then I looked up—and there before me were two women, with the wind in their wings! They had wings like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth. 10 “Where are they taking the basket?” I asked the angel who was speaking to me. 11 He replied, “To the country of Babylonia to build a house for it. When it is ready, the basket will be set there in its place.”

Women are capable of real evil, the vilest of which always seems to be blamed on men!

A wife that doesn’t put out or makes the man “earn” it will find these kinds of things happening as well. There’s a reason the bible says a wife is not to hold back except for the unclean time of month, unless by consent.

I agree that women have the responsibility to see to the needs of their husbands as the Bible has explained them. I do take issue with husbands whacking their wives with that scripture without also taking the responsibility to, as Paul put it, ‘love their wives as Christ loved the church’. Christ loved us so much that He died for us, husbands have that example to follow.

Each one of us is only responsible for our own actions. I only answer to Christ and my husband for my treatment of my husband, not his of me. To blame someone else for my actions is childish, it doesn’t matter what the provocation is. We are not told that adultery is ok if your wife isn’t, as you say, “putting out”. We are told it is wrong, it is our fallen nature that wants to put conditions on the command to not commit adultery.

I didn’t say I agree with adultery, I was playing the devil’s advocate, then mentioned why the bible says what it says. It’s a tall order to love your wife as Christ himself loves the church, but that’s what the men are commanded to do.

At the end of the day if we all followed God’s word, our world would be a much better place.

I am sorry I misunderstood where you were coming from. I don’t think we disagree at all. I also agree that it is a tall order for the men, they are to be the servant, the priest, the leader of the family. It is a lot, and so many young men are not being taught that it needs to be done or how to do it, just as young women are not being taught how to be good wives. Moving away from scripture as a basis for life has really messed us up.

I agree.

However, if we add up the total evil committed by men and women down the centuries, then men come out WAY ahead.

Admittedly, this is largely because men have held the power, and thus had more opportunity to perpetrate evil.

Adam was responsible, as the head of the family, for what happened in the Garden. Ahab was responsible, as King, for allowing his Queen to persecute the righteous.

I am curious what great evil you think Catharine the Great was guilty of, at least when compared to the other (male) absolute monarchs of her time.

Just as Obama is responsible when he orders or permits his administration to do unconstitutional or evil things.

The withholding of sex within marriage is considered to be an abandonment of the marriage.

Even so, if the wife, or husband, is withholding sex, divorce is a Biblical option. It is a willful breaking of themarriage covenant.

Sex outside of marriage is never an option.

I agree that it breaks the marital covenant. Each partner trades the potential for other sex partners for the assurance that the other partner will do everything he/she can to meet sexual needs.

Fair enough, until one partner decides he/she (usually she) doesn't want to have sex anymore, which means the other partner becomes celibate, which he did not sign up for.

However, I am a little iffy about it being appropriate scriptural grounds for divorce. I think Christ was pretty clear that adultery was the sole ground.

There are a bunch of things a spouse can do that "break the marital covenant." I am wary of elevating all of them to proper Biblical grounds for divorce.

Not to mention “being on blame” being the other side of the coin of the tiebreaker.
