Trudy Schuetta href=”http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-12866-Domestic-Violence-Examiner~y2009m9d24-Praxis-International-encourages-domestic-violence-when-properly-applied” reports at Examiner.com on/a Praxis International, an organization that she says “encourages domestic violence, when properly applied.” Trudy says:br /br /blockquoteI wouldn’t have known anything about this org but for an e-mail I got from Marc Angelucci, of NCFM. The e-mail was about the outrage felt by participants at the recent Washington State Domestic Violence Coalition (WSDVC) annual conference, where Amanda McCormick, an employee of Praxis said with a grin, “I think I know a lot of men who deserve to be beaten,” during her keynote address./blockquotebr /br /Naturally, when asked for clarification about this comment, Janice Wick, Associate Director of Praxis, said: br /br /blockquote”Amanda McCormick is an employee of Praxis International but was not representing Praxis at the Washington conference. As I was not present, I can not speak to your concerns. I would not want to make a judgment based on a sentence that may or may not have been taken out of context. I will forward your email to Amanda and she will respond to you directly.”/blockquotebr /br /Notice how there is always an excuse when PC comments are made in most organizations, one that would not be tolerated had the sexes been reversed. I am glad to see that people who were attending were outraged and that Ms. Schuett is on the case.
