Dear Sarah Palin… Love, God

Dear Sarah Palin… Love, God

Finally, Sarah Palin and I agree.

We both want people to accept and celebrate every child, even those who appear different… and we want them to act right with regard to those children. When she was told by doctors during her pregnancy that her unborn child had Down syndrome, she wrote a letter to her family and friends from God’s perspective.

She seems to have seen quite clearly that her son was not broken, he was made this way intentionally, and she clearly expresses the expectation that he will be celebrated for being exactly who he is. I think this letter was a bold first move in what promises to be a lifetime of advocating for her beloved child.

I wonder how the letter would have read if doctors had instead informed her that her son was gay.

I can’t say that I’ve ever had the impulse or clarity to deliver a written message directly from my Higher Power but the idea of it moved me and I’ve taken the liberty of adapting Palin’s letter (quite minimally, as you can see) to explore the possibility.

Sad, isn’t it, how people will defend Sarah Palin for writing a letter “from God”, yet put down this touching article?
Guess they are like the God of Leviticus 21 who didn’t want the following in his temple: “For no one who has a blemish shall draw near, a man blind or lame, or who has a mutilated face or a limb too long, or a man who has an injured foot or an injured hand, or a hunchback, or a dwarf, or a man with a defect in his sights or an itching disease or scabs or crushed testicles; no man of the descendants of Aaron the priest who has a blemish shall come near to offer the Lord’s offerings by fire; since he has a blemish, he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God…He shall not come near the veil or approach the altar, because he has a blemish, that he may not profane my sanctuaries…”
If we’re not “perfect”, we don’t count. How sad. And yet they tell us in Sunday school, “God is love” and “Yes, Jesus loves me.” Evidently not if we deviate from “perfection”.

I agree that you are as bad as what you think she is by posting this article.

you are not God and should not be signing letters in his name.

If you don't know God do not write ANYTHING and sign His name to it. God inspired a book to be written. That is enough. We DO NOT need any 'wouldbes' out there putting words in His mouth.

Christy, author of ridiculous "letter" , as loony as she portrays Palin!!!...................

I have to agree with Camille and Neil on this.

Well Shirley, maybe you ought to consider how much hatred Palin and her fans direct towards the rest of us. Do you think that could be it?

Thought provoking - but I'm amazed how much hatred is directed to this woman.

Dear Christy Diane Farr,
I brought you and Sarah, into this world to be the individuals you both are. Some may think you and Sarah are special, as are Trig your "Sam", and some may not. Sarah sent a heartfelt, caring, note that I may have written. I suspect that Sarah would have handled the news of "Sam" in the same way. A person handles his personal life challenges and spiritual growth in his own individual way, which is no one's business but his own.
I forgive you,
Sincerely, God'(as imagined by Debbie S.)

P.S.Your obvious underlying political beliefs have nothing to do with a belief in me.

Can't we send this nutter along with Bush Jnr, bLiar and the pope to a desert island somewhere, so they can annoy each other, instead of us!
