When it is in furtherance of baptism. HT to Feministe.
Apparently, Jimmy Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers gave his kid’s mother a taste of the back of his hand because she didn’t want the boy baptized.
What Jimmy Harrison was doing and how the incident occurred, what he was trying to do was really well worth it,” Rooney said of Harrison’s initial intent with his son. “He was doing something that was good, wanted to take his son to get baptized where he lived and things like that. She said she didn’t want to do it.”
I actually held off on posting this until today because I didn’t want anyone to think that it was an April Fool’s Day joke. Un-freakin-believable.
