So, I tend to be a bit verbose. But I wrote to this woman as well.
"I've seen the clip on YouTube of your remarks at a gathering in your district (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFxk7glmMbo&eurl
). I do not know if this recording is an accurate depiction of your statements. While I find the statements attributed to you in this clip abhorrent, if they are, I thank you for making them. I would far rather face such hateful commentary expressed openly than allow them to fester under the surface. Obviously, you don't represent me, and not just because I don't live in your district. But even though it's sickening that anyone, let alone a public official, would make such remarks, I am at least glad that your reasons are stated so openly. It makes it much easier for those in your district to determine whether you are the best representative of their views.
For the sake of not only those ostracized, marginalized, and ashamed of being who they are in a way that brings harm to no one who isn't a willing participant (and the condemnation you bear on such individuals is clearly one of the driving forces of the suicide rate you cite as a reason why that is an unhealthy lifestyle), and for you as well, I can only hope that you will one day realize the error of your ways. As an individual who claims to adhere to the teachings of the New Testament, you would do well to consider a little more carefully the Golden Rule. If the way you are treating those with whose inborn attractions you dislike is how you would wish to be treated yourself, you clearly have a very different outlook on life than most people do. And in that case, I wish for you the treatment that you desire, particularly if it could save it from being heaped upon someone whose only "crime" is loving another adult in a way that you don't comprehend."
