Althouse: Grovel (Or I'll Never Call You Names Again)

There's a pretty wild cult-like ritual taking place, right now, where - after abusing her followers - the leader has withdrawn most contact, claiming some are trying to destroy their beliefs, and she will continue to withhold contact until the abused show the proper remorse. They're lining up, too:
"I'm sorry for not being a better commenter,…"

Mind you, cult fans, this all started after the leader decided, because she has a gay son, that everyone who opposed gay marriage was A) a bigot, and B) a "loser." Then, she went on a feminist-inspired abortion tear that included this:
"The backbone of society is the married, committed couple who channel their sexuality into making and growing the next generation. Those who do other things are free to make choices, but we as a society have no reason to facilitate their choices, especially their destructive choices."

Naturally, massive cognitive dissonance ensued. Everything, since then, has been efforts by the followers to get their leader to square these opposing views. Here's an example of what they got back, instead, from the "professor":
"I guess I pushed your li'l button.

Your buttonette. 

Now you'll have something to do other than jerking off to old pics of Joey Heatherton and Barbara Eden while swilling booze on Court Street."

And now she's demanding apologies - and getting them.

I swear, considering how twisted it "works" in the real world, I know NewAge deserves every second I devote to witnessing it,...
