Chancellor's horror at the thought that his wife was falsely implicated as an ex-member of the cult, THE FAMILY, is so ironic that it wrankles one's senses enough as to cause pain. At least, this incident reveals something about his character--at least to others, probably not to himself.
Imagine his horror if he were to wake up, as many of us have had to, after over 2 decades of mindless christian fundamentalism under the heavy slime of sexual liberation, and have to face life (and your children) with no support, no friends, no family, no education and so many bridges burned that you might as well live in the ruins of a nuclear holocaust or the rubble of the twin towers--another fine example of fundamentalism in extremity.
As Byron expressed in his poem, Don Juan:
"And if I laugh at any mortal thing,/
'Tis that I may not weep."
