Follow-Up to Yesterday's Post

I got a response from the person who sent the email out. "Point taken." (And a question about the email address because the one she has is an alias.)

That's all I wanted to know - that I made my point without insulting anyone. I seem to have done so. :)

And I have the most wonderful friend's list ever. I love and respect you, too.

I'm glad you got that kind of reaction. And I'm very proud that you responded in a way that she took that way.

I have to admit that this election (especially out here in California) runs so close to the bone for me that I couldn't even click the links in your post. Part of me can't wait until tomorrow night and the other is dreading it.

HUGS.

I can absolutely understand that, given what's at stake for you there. For what it's worth, I believe that that proposition is wrong in every aspect, and I know the support for it is as ugly as the opposition to Obama, full of lies and distortions.

I'm just hoping that the people of California, whatever their personal beliefs, realize that it's completely unAmerican to strip people of rights they already have. And that President Obama finds a way to rid us of the DoMA, which is not only plain wrong but also hurts the Full Faith and Credit clause, which is among those things that make us a nation as opposed to a loose confederation.

And, of course, that there will be a President Obama. :)

*hugs you back*

Thank you for that. I just don't understand how people and churches and synagogues and other religious institutions can put so much money into making it impossible for me to choose whether or not to get married when people are going hungry and losing their homes and unable to get health care. That kind of priority goes against everything that my grandfather the Methodist minister taught me as well as what I've always believed was true about Judaism.

If it helps, there are lots of us hoping and praying with you. I and my household certainly will be.

Thank you. That does help.

*hugs* I'm praying for that one. I have friends who I want to see married with the same rights I could have.

And I'm of the opinion that no religion justifies hatred and bigotry.

Thank you.

You must be so relieved!

I am. So very relieved.

You're a wonderful person. Of course you'd attract other wonderful people :)

Thank you!

Since you're one of the wonderful people.

What a great response and it really shows how writing a well thought out email can get people to think about stuff. You do have a great f-list.

I'm so glad you got a respectful and accepting response; it certainly shows that your faith in your study group friends is justified.

I'm so glad to hear that! Because that was an awesome email you sent, and it must have been scary to send it.

much love

Catherine
