As you probably all know, I have some strong opinions, and this article from CNN got me riled today!
But instead of getting depressed over it, I decided to find the e-mail address of this mayor and let him know that I agree with what he's saying, and that I applaud his efforts in standing up for family values. Here's what I wrote to him just now:
Though I do not reside in Florida, as a parent, I would like to thank you for standing up for the cause of right in your opposition of improper activity among homosexuals in your city. Over the past year or so, I have read much about the "gay community" and their gatherings in Florida, and frankly, I decided that my children and I would avoid your state for future vacations, as these activities are absolutely NOT family-friendly. I also have a cousin who lives with her husband and four young daughters in your state, and I thought of her and how difficult it must be to raise a family in a place where immoral gatherings have begun to increase.Today I read an article about you on CNN's website, (http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/08/08/fort.lauderdale.mayor/index.html ) and I knew I had to write you and make sure you knew that there are MANY parents in America who support you and your statements. Bless you, sir for not backing down and for supporting good family programs, such as the Boy Scouts of America. And thank you, from one concerned parent, for refusing to apologize for your courageous comments. The cause of family is worth fighting for. Thank you so much for being willing to stand on the front lines!
Mrs. R.K., Arizona
