I am so fucking happy right now. In addition to finishing the tweaking on my latest poem, I just spoke with my mother, and she has done the most fucking amazing thing!|
Mom lives in Greensboro, N.C. Not the deep south, but still "Good Ole Boys" territory and fairly socially conservative. A few weeks ago, she was invited by the local newspaper, the Greensboro News and Record, to be on their Readers' Advisory Network. What this is, is that when there are major "hot button topics," the newspaper folk ask for commentary from the Network, and publish some of the responses as editorials. So she agreed.
Well, today, the question they have asked of the Network is this:
On Tuesday President Bush urged Congress to approve a constitutional
amendment banning gay marriage.
Do you agree with a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage? Why or
Before you read her response, you should know that my mother does not believe homosexuality is a moral choice. She knows about me, and accepts it, but does not approve.
( Here is her response.Collapse )
I am so proud of her right now that I could scream. I *so* hope they publish it.
