Here's the thing. You see, this is MY blog. Therefore, I can write what I want. See how that works? If I want to write that all Irish people should wear purple on Wednesdays, I can write that. If I want to write that I think all democrats should be taken out back and hung by their toe nails, I can write that.
Webster's defines bigotry as a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion. As for reading comprehension, did it ever say anywhere in ANY entry that I hate anyone of ANY race, gender, sexual orientation, creed, etc? Because I didn't see that... I don't care if two men/women want to get married. It has little to no effect on me. It really doesn't. Should it be called a marriage? In my opinion, no, because MY religion that I am entitled to follow says marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN. I have no, zero, nada problem with calling it a civil union and giving them the same rights as any other married couple, but it is not a marriage IN MY OPINION. I don't care if Jim down the street wants to marry his mailbox, it makes no difference to me, but don't call it a marriage.
I respect other people's opinions. I don't chase down other people's blogs and leave nasty comments if I don't agree with them.
And just a side note, ALL of you are a CLASS ACT. Really. So far, the majority of this blog has been about the loss of our child. NOT ONE of you has left a comment of sympathy, compassion or support. You have only left negative, rude comments. You, my friends, are lower than low. I would not wish what we have been through in the last week on my worst enemy, yet you can only come here to ruffle feathers and be spiteful. SHAME ON YOU. You all disgust me. It sounds to me like some of YOU are the bigots, not me.
I will be praying for each of you this week.
