Does anyone else find the judge’s language in this opinion…problematic?
Like, I know he is the actual judge in the case, but this still comes off as judgy.
In ordering the maximum sentence on the child abuse charges, Gay said he found Lowe to be untruthful and selfish and called it a tragedy that so many people believe her version of events.
Gay said Lowe’s statement in a letter to the judge claiming she did not know she was pregnant was “not credible,” and he chided her for writing that the babies’ father had date-raped her.
“Just how in the world is that relevant?” he asked. “And is it supposed to devalue the lives of these children?…There are real serious problems in you taking responsibility for what you did.”
Gay quoted Focus on the Family founder James Dobson saying, “Our children are the true wealth of any nation” and added that we cannot become “a child-killing society that views children as burdens rather than blessings.”
