A few weeks ago, another former lesbian from a lesbian household came and spoke at my church on a topic much like this. This quote, “We’ve made God little if we believe He cannot change people”, explains why I HATE Macklemore’s song, ‘Same Love’, and Mary Lambert’s spin-off ‘She Keeps Me Warm’.
I believe that people can change, and God can change people. But they have to believe it, too.
A mom in Baldwin, New York RSVP’ed to a small child’s birthday party invitation with a vile anti-gay screed.
Little Sophia turns 7 in a few weeks, so her two dads decided to throw her a party and invite her friends to celebrate. One of those friends is Tommy, whose mom Beth is apparently a rabid homophobe. She returned the invitation with the following response:
“Tommy will NOT attend. I do not beleive [sic] in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your ‘lifestyle.’ I am sorry Sophia has to grow up this way. If you have an issue or need to speak to me: 516-362-1357.”
Sophia’s dads were understandably furious, so they sent the letter off to local radio station K-98.3, who posted it on Facebook. The station adds that they contacted Beth, who “gave us permission to post her phone number and said anyone who has a problem with what she wrote can call her, too!”
….I’m bout to leave this bitch a message…
maaaan FUCK beth
imma call too
say I wont
except it is a hoax. a shitty one to do too
I hate when people do this. You don’t need to lie to prove a point or create “healthy discourse”.
Even if it had been real, that’s no excuse to post that picture online. In the instance where this is real, the mom clearly gives a line of contact for personal use only, and this would be wrong to share uncensored online. Why? Because even if someone disagrees with your lifestyle and is a little rude about it, there are far worse people on the internet who will lash out to the extreme against someone they consider “homophobic” (God, I hate that term).
