re: vandalism - sigh. this is not the way. what idiots thought this was a good idea?
The truck you show in the photo is commonly referred to as "the Hate Truck" in and around Lincolnton NC which is where it calls home. Most of the locals cringe when they see it rolling around town.
To evangelicals trying to make excuses about the behavior seen by this reporter I just have one thing to say - What these people said is simply a less polite way of saying what Franklin Graham has been advocating for years with his ministry.
First, I must say that one must keep in mind that INDY Week is a self-described "progressive" news source. While the encounters related may be true, the point of this story was to make evangelical Christians look bad. If the writer was at this rally, and wanted to offer an unbiased report, he would have gone to all areas of the rally and spoke to different types of people in attendance. I can guarantee the people he referenced were in the minority of the full group. That's the problem with stories like this...you call them "news," but there is no balance. You told the story only from the viewpoint you wanted it to be heard...that's called bias. Even if every word you wrote is true, it's unbalanced and therefore untrustworthy. That's not journalism in my book, Mr. Fine.
I am saddened and a little angry by the comments you quoted. I attended the rally and didn't see/hear anything of the kind. It is as though we attended two different events. I guarantee you that if I had heard any such talk, I would have spoken up to condemn it. I apologize for any bigoted, hateful things you might have heard. That certainly was not the sentiment of most, I hope, that were there. And it is certainly not honoring of the God whom we profess to serve.

There ARE nice parts of north carolina, here and there... You just have to hold your nose as you drive through the shit kickin' countryside. Winston-Salem is a super friendly city, filled with all kinds of interesting and diverse people. You should check out the arts district sometime, if only to renew your soul and hide from the rest of the state and its various redneck horrors. I have purple hair, and people in my small town look at me like I have wavy stink lines coming off my alien body. This reaction comes from people who are legally able to marry their first cousins (unless they're gay cousins, that is)
Totally unfit, allowed a parent to move out of state and away from their father with no real reason other than he believed the schools were better suited for a child with disabilities. They played the military card and so much untruth when it all boiled down to her having a boyfriend in that state. No concrete reason for this decision. This is a reply from a consultation from a psychologist with a PHD: This does not seem complicated to me. These cases are based on the best interest of the child. XXXXXX is a special needs child. There is no research anywhere that says any child, let alone a special needs one, is better off with access and care by just one parent. Unless the other parent is a drug addict or child abuser. I cannot imagine any judge just arbitrarily removing one caring, eager parent from XXXXXX's day to day life. Even if MMMM would be happier and less stressed in SSSSSS, well, this is about the child and not the mother. Parents sacrifice for their children. By far the strongest bias the courts have is for joint custody unless there is a compelling reason not to award that. And there would not be a compelling reason in this case. In the cases I am familiar with, if there is joint custody then the other parent has to agree to let the child move away, otherwise the child stays in the area. The Doctor of psychologist was shocked at his award to allow them to move multiple states away. You can not explain to a child with disabilities that you can't pick them up anymore when they ask you almost daily.
Sad that as many religious people who complain about traditional values falling out of favor (humility, self-control, chastity), that the most important traditional value of tolerance is rejected by those that claim the loudest to be so.
This phenomenon is not unique to Christianity, but it is disappointing to see it manifested none-the-less.
You should have posted their names
Who's stopping you from saying you were called any names at any particular rally.
Took her long enough...
