Marriage Not All That

Witchy oops in Oak Park

Proving once again that marriage (and class differences) is often a force for evil in the world.

Caste dispute cited in Oak Forest fire

An Oak Forest man set a fire that killed his pregnant daughter, son-in-law and young grandson because he was upset over his daughter's marriage, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Subhash Chander, 57, told police that he resented the couple for what he considered a "cultural slight" -- that his daughter Monika Rani, 22, had married a man from a lower caste and done so without his consent, according to a court document.

If this story's hook was about a smoker of salvia who killed himself, for instance, there would be pressure to ban it. Who is going to "think of the children" and agitate for banning marriage?!
