Sorry, Ms. Lee: Your faith is not faith-y enough for 'Yes on 1' campaign

by Jeremy Hooper

The following was posted to Stand For Marriage Maine's Facebook wall:

StandForMariageMaine [F'book]

It was of course deleted within minutes.

But unfortunately for SFMM, they can't delete either the awareness that their hurtful and divisive campaign has cultivated, or the heartfelt realities of those who've been exposed to the same. More than any state to ever come before, we're confident that this dissension-shunning, "enemy"-decrying, generally misrepresentative, overplayed campaign has opened a considerable number of eyes. And we're fairly hopeful that these newly enlightened ranks will put us in victory's cozy corner.

**Oh, and to answer your question, Johan:

Yes, yes it is. And then to call you a "troll" for daring to (a) have a divergent view, and (b) care enough about democracy to share the same.

Your thoughts

I like Miss Lee!

I'm glad she has kids. She's a good example for them of what God's love really means.

It's a bit off topic, but can I just say that Johan David Baumeister is making my knees weak? I mean, I'm downright swooning over here.

People like Petra Lee are the ones they hate the most, and for whom they reserve the most concentrated venom. It's because they give the lie to their assertion that they are the sole voice and representatives of Christianity.

They need a whole bunch of Ms Lee's on the phonebanks!

Too bad we can't get back to Ms. Lee. She should send that in to her newspaper as a letter to the editor!

God bless you, Ms. Lee, in all that you do for our Lord's work.

Maine is going to vote to ban perverted unions just like we did in California! Of that, I have no doubts!

Ms. Lee understands what Christ meant when He commanded us to treat others as we want to be treated. The Bible is very clear that revilers are going to hell. It states it in more than one place. We can find an example of a reviler right here among the comments. Revilers should worry about the eternal state of their own souls and not the love two people share.

They censor on their FB page, they delete what they don't want their followers to see, they lie, they distort the truth. I hope they really believe their assertion that the 13,000 fans of Protect Maine Equality are all out of state and won't vote...LOL. They are so totally clueless...


Posted by: Leslie | Oct 20, 2009 10:09:14 AM

Oh, Jared. Notice that your comment is still here, and will remain here, you silly troll. That alone should tell you something.

We must thank the Yes on 1 campaign for converting the Petra Lee's of this world. Christians who understand what love is and use their brains easily see through the lies.
