??!! Letter of the Day
posted by June 28 at 11:03 AMon
Typically, posting Letters of the Day is the job of web editor Amy Kate Horn, but since she’s the subject of today’s letter, I shall do the posting. Enjoy, and ew.
Dearest Ms. Horn: Pretend for a moment that I am your good mother who embraces you and supports you 100% for the person you are. In fact I do love you unconditionally and I am very proud of you for your kind email to me today.
Honey, don’t you think that after the big splash your editor made with the “Stranger Gets Religion” that it would be a fabulous idea to make an equally colorful retraction for Christian Faith Center?
Pastor Casey Treat is no Jerry Falwell, my dear. In fact, if you research it, I believe you will find that Falwell’s college has been accused of discriminating against Pentecostal/Charismatics — the type of church Christian Faith Center is. The Baptists are at odds with Pentecostals. I don’t think I am wrong about this.
I have heard Pastor Treat say he wants Gay men and Lesbians to attend his church. Maybe he thinks he can “heal” you. LoL. So do Scientologists, *twinkles* The position of my Catholic Faith is that we are all called to Holiness. Being a heterosexual married to the same person for a lifetime is not easy. We get just as lonely sexually as anyone else. If you are not Catholic or a Christian, we do not hold you to our same standards.
Gay marriage is only a concern if our churches are forced by law to perform this sacrament on people who are not prepared for life long commitment to a person of the opposite sex. I know that seems unfair. But we only ask that our religion be allowed to flourish without government interference, just as Gay men and Lesbians want to be allowed to flourish without government interference in their life choices.
Please do no be offended, my sweet daughter. I love you. Please be at peace and ask your editor to have the courage to do the right thing. I know, I know, your readers might be bored. But your paper is too popular to lose its vast readership over one mea culpa well done with splash and your usual panache.
All my affection, Pro-life Catholic Mother
I need a shower. *twinkles*
