Grow up.

I am sick to my stomach right now.

I've just found out that a friend of mine has been receiving death threats, and threats against her loved ones, because she disagreed with me on something. I don't know if she believes that I had NOTHING to do with that or not. I hope and pray she knows me better than to believe I would EVER wish something like that on her.

If you have sent a letter to someone, suggesting horrible things happen to her, or to her animals, don't come back. I don't want you here.

You want to know what my politics/religious beliefs are?

God is love. Love is not a sin.
America is freedom. Freedom to name God whatever you want, or to not acknowlege God's existance.

That's it.

Do I agree with Bush? Hell, no. Do I think that, as Americans, we all have the right to come to our own conclusions? YES. Even if you disagree with me, you have a right to do so.

By sending those e-mails, you have hurt a very loving person. And there is NO WAY hurting someone else can be a valid attempt to show someone that the "liberal mindset" is correct. You are childish, rude, and everything you probably claim to hate. You owe that friend of mine a very sincere apology, at the very least. You should be ashamed of yourself. No wonder we lost, if that assinine behavior is all you've got to fight with.

Thanks Amie... they're sending them "from" Donna and now Jen as well... Jen's being the "wish you would die" and knowing Jen as little as I do, I still know she wouldn't write that. It's probably just a troll taking the names from my comments, but regardless it's gone on long enough

Oh Amie, what a horrible thing to have happen to anyone. This election has brought out the best and the absolute worst in people, I swear. I'd be devastated, as I know you are, if someone I cared about was threatened because they disagreed with me. H*ll, I don't trust anyone who would agree with me all the time! I don't agree with me all the time!

Certainly anyone who has read your blog for any amount of time would know that you would NEVER condone the kind of behavior you are describing. I'm sure your friend knows that, too.

Best to you and your friend...

How terrible! I am truly unhappy with the both sides bashing that has been happening on the blogs, in the media, everywhere. I hope your friend stops getting the notes soon.

I agree with what you said, Amie. Shea, are you saying that someone is sending you nasty e-mails supposedly "from" me? I hope that you know it is not me. I would never stoop so low as to send "hate mail." I consider you and your family friends even if we do have differing views politically. We have so much else in common.

How truly horrid. I like what Elisa said. "I don't even agree with myself all the time!" LOL. True for me, too.

I'm so absolutely saddened at what this election has done to people. I agree with you that everyone has a right to their opinion, but no one has the right to threaten someone like that.

I wish we could turn back time and get everyone to respect one another once again. Respect doesn't mean blind agreement but that we are at least civil with one another. I had hopes that Christmas would be a return of the friendly spirit but as time goes on, I'm not so sure.

This is just awful. I'm so sorry that this is happening to anyone. Attack tactics are simply unproductive, disrespectful, and (the part people forget about) fully ineffective. What ever happened to disagreeing civilly?

Thanks for the call to decency,
