Open Letter to Rep Mark Souder
By Holly in Cincinnati
Dear Rep. Souder,
I lived and voted in the State of Indiana for 24 years, from 1976-2000, graduated from IU and am a former employee of the State of Indiana. I moved back to Ohio in 2000 and am both safer and happier here then I ever was in Indiana.
I have C-SPAN on for the ENDA discussion (an independent consultant, I work out of my home). Listening to what you just said, I am willing to bet that, as a heterosexual Christian, you have not experienced 1/100 of the un-American discrimination and abuse I have faced as a Jewish lesbian.
I am a religious person and apparently you are too. Since the Jewish community has far more civilized views on our GLBT members than much of the Christian community has of its GLBT members, suggest that YOU educate yourself by attending church services this Sunday at an MCC or one of the many other gay-friendly churches. You might learn something about true Christianity there.
