Lauten made the typical non-apology apology on Facebook following a backlash over her remarks. She either made that apology private or deleted it after posting it.
She wrote in part, “After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were.”
Why does it take “hours of prayer” to understand that children are hands off?[su_csky_ad]
