Thanks, guys!

Thank you to all of you who commented on my last post. I love that even though we don't all agree on everything, we can be polite and still get along. Not everyone is capable of this. For example, here are a couple of quotes from a couple of the blogs I read:

  • (regarding Proposition 8) "F*ck you, Mormon church."
  • "I think the most painful blow in this election is not simply the fact that a radical liberal ran away with the American vote, but that there did not seem to be enough Christians to make a difference. As the salt of the earth, we have "lost our savor". The foundation of our society has been infiltrated by the "termites" of secular humanism and who can we blame for its collapse but ourselves?"
Wow. I just can't win with this election-first I'm given the big eff you, then I'm basically told I'm not Christian because I support Obama. Oh, and that I'm a termite. The only thing I can say to that is . . . seriously? No, really . . . seriously?

I live in LA and there is currently a street-blocking protest going on in front of the LDS temple on one of the busiest streets in the city. I can't help but cringe at the fact that certain groups are being targeted as the reason for prop 8 to go through . . . and I know it's so counterproductive to bash one group to elevate another . . . that's what the no-on-prop-8 folks FELT but now it's what they're DOING.

I don't know you, but I like your blog - I am sorry you felt you had to take down a post and mostly sorry that people can't reign in their emotions and immaturity sometimes. Rock on!

Thanks for your comment, Abby! BTW, I checked out your profile and you are the only other person I have heard of that not only has heard of Dar Williams, but likes her music. I automatically think you're awesome just because of that!

Oh yeah, Dar Williams . . . I've been listening to her since college, but I am from/went to school on the East coast and that's where she's from, too, so maybe that's why. I don't know if you know all of her stuff or not, but I just love "The Christians and the Pagans" (song) because it is so basic yet so smart about how people can still respect each other. And the whole "The Green World" album has got to be my fav. Thanks!!!
