Fight hate with love...

So a couple days ago, I was forwarded an e-mail from one of my friends. It was the e-mail from the FRC apparently going around about Chick-Fil-A to all of their “supporters” about how they are being persecuted by the left wing agenda because they support the true biblical meaning of marriage. (And seriously? I know someone who subscribes to the FRC? I was shocked.)

I’m not blogging today about how wrong their president's statement is. Any person reading my blog knows this is what I think already. This hateful agenda will be proven wrong by history, eventually. It is my hope that this happens sooner rather than later. 

Instead, like normal, I'm blogging about love. Because I write romance and I believe in love, no matter the gender. I also believe in families, which is inclusive of all families. So I'll share my story about my family. 

My parents were married for over 35 years and I am their only child. My mother did give birth to a girl before she met my dad and she was also married and divorced previously before she and my dad said I do. After my mom passed away, he was lucky enough to fall in love again with a lovely woman who had a daughter from a previous marriage. So now, I have a sister! :) Who is coming with me to GRL, by the way (so excited ZOMG) so we are having a sister weekend!

So we may not have a traditional family, or at least not like the president of Chick-Fil-A, who is married to his first wife. I have so many problems with his statement he gave to The Baptist Press News and I'd like to think he realizes his mistake but probably not. 

But I'm focusing not on the hate in his statement but on love because I believe true love will find a way. :)


  1. I love this excerpt from the Daily Show about the Chick fil-A statement:

    1. OMG, I almost spit coffee on my computer.

      I must have missed this episode. Considering we watch Jon Stewart during dinner, I can't say I'm disappointed :D Glad to see it now.
