Well my answer is that bigotry can happen anywhere and still does.
Bless their hearts.
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: !!!-###-**."
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!"
-bold by me-
We live in a time where these views of hatred are antiquated and no longer acceptable to voice. It drives conservatives mad that they are no longer able to spew evil and get away with it. They continually fight to have their hatred cloaked in religious ideology elevated above the rights of others to freely express their love for one another.
Well I'm glad these two dads took a stand. Their daughter is a lucky little girl.
