Jerry Sandusky's Friend Joyce Porter Will Defend Him To The End

If you’ve wondered who in their right minds would still be defending former Penn State assistant football coach and accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky, well, here’s your answer. Her name is Joyce Porter, she’s a friend of Sandusky’s, and she says things like this:

“When everyone was persecuting Jesus, someone had to stand with him,” Porter said.

That’s right, everybody. Jerry Sandusky’s plight = similar to Jesus’.

Naturally, Porter has an answer for everything.

What about laying in bed with the kids?

“It’s a sign of him being fatherly,” she said. "Did your dad lay down with you when it was time to go to bed? I know my dad did with me.

The extent of Porter’s defense of Sandusky is hard to appreciate except by clicking through and reading the whole thing, so make sure you do so. Porter seems to be thoroughly deluded, but it’s hard not to feel for her on some level. It must be hard to make a deep friendship just disappear when it turns out your friend (allegedly) did a lot of terrible, terrible things.
