I'm sorry for the long post.. My husband's business partner & his wife are weirdly religious. They like to go out & have a good time, they are not angels by any means but they devoutly go to church, give their church TONS of money, etc.. We went to Hawaii with them a few years ago over Halloween season. I was laughing at all the decorations & they were making comments on how they don't celebrate Halloween (it's anti-Christian..) We also went to a Luau & I wanted to buy a small handcarved Tiki statue to bring home & put by our pool. "G" made a comment that it was "evil" & I honestly thought he was joking (but he wasn't...) I'm on his wife's email list & she is always sending out these "Christian coalition" newsletters to everyone on her buddy list. These newletters are put out by the nutcases who sue Walmart for selling "questionable" dolls, etc... I've learned to pretty much ignore them but lately she keeps emailing me one's that target gay people. I got one a few weeks ago urging everyone to boycott Ford because they give benefit programs to homosexuals & they "market the Jaguar to homosexuals" WTF?! Today, I get this one (SEE BELOW) & I'm sitting here speechless. You see, my uncle is gay & I also have a 2nd cousin that's gay (it goes without saying, I don't think she knows that...) My uncle was all but disowned by most of the family when he came out. Now that I'm older, I understand & accept him for who he is. In fact, we are closer now than we have ever been. My husband symathizes & tells me just to ignore her but I don't think I can stay quiet much longer. We've known this couple for years. Due to the personal & business relationship we have, I have to treat this delicately. Her & I aren't that close but we do see each other at company things & we do socailize occasionally. It so burns my butt to see "Christians" being so judgmental & bigoted. We are not extremely religious & we don't go to church regularly. I do believe in God & trust me, I've done my share of praying over the years. We are a good family & I'm raising my kids to be honest, caring, OPENMINDED individuals. I just hate to see people call themselves Christians, go to church every Sunday, do what they think God wants but then are the first people to judge, chastize & treat people like dirt who aren't just like them. I know this is an age old debate but I really just need advice about how to handle this.. Do I just delete the email & ignore it AGAIN or should I say something to her? I really want to avoid any awkwardness though. We have a company trip in 6 weeks where I'm going to be seeing them. Any advice?? Thanks Parents Please Read Before Its Too Late: Homosexual groups CAN & DO Promote, Support & RECRUITstudents, YOUR CHILDREN .. to the homosexual lifestyle in schools!! College High School & even Elementary!!!! (Many Universities promote homosexuality on their application!!) BUT, since Religion is banned from schools...Students & Groups Cannot Promote, Support or Recruit fellow students to follow Gods Way . Some Christians are even supporting the homosexual marriage agenda & the many other rights they are demanding, not realizing what the results will mean, including: -Many Catholic adoption agencies are closing their doors due to being forced to allow same sex adoptions. Its against their Religion! -Catholic & Christian Schools that receive state aid will be forced to allow the Promotion & Recruitment of homosexuals in their schools or lose their aid putting them out of business, or going against their Religion! -Your Childrens Teachers will be forced to actively teach that homosexuality is a normal way of life & an equal option for all of them. Remember, Teachers will not be allowed to mention what the Bible says! Only the promotion of homosexuality, not Christianity is allowed!! 2% of America is homosexual (estimated) 79% of Americans say they believe in God! If you believe in God then Promote, Support & Recruit for him!! Stop allowing His Greatness to be washed away!! God brings hardship to our lives to Get Our Attention & Change Things! Dont wait for that to happen! Start NOW!! -Vote for politicians supporting Christian Values this November! -Join Christian Action groups like www.afa.net ! -Speak up! We may be the biggest, but we are NOT the loudest!!
