    BRAVO! the voice of compassion and commonsense.
    I've frequently wondered just what RIGHT other humans have to
    impose their wrong-headed views on others. Apparently, the
    formal attire of the Supreme Court members gives them that
    right - much like that of the Nazi uniform. Their appalling decision
    to vote against same-sex marriage is a ludicrous and wicked
    example of a group of narrow-minded POWERFUL invididuals.

    NewChapter- I agree. The "open letter" is just awful. I'm so fed up with our country. I'm a married woman, and I am just fed up with our govt on SO many levels right now! I cannot believe an Americans Civil Rights have to be voted on??? I consider myself a believer in God, and yet I am American. American does NOT mean Christian- only. The constitution has been written to include ALL and give certain rights to ALL, yet, these rights are still only being given to some because CHRISTIANS have a problem with it. WTF?!?! So wrong!! I'm over this. Give EVERYONE their rights, and let's get to the bigger issues. This is a big issue but only because it's been denied for SOOO painfully long.

    Please all, allow me this observation...

    As a gay man who has been out of the closet for almost 30 years, I have seen my fair share, but no more than those that came and triumphed the hardships before me.

    Yes, these letters are great with sentiment and tearjerking memories, with more and more hitting the waves of the internet stream.

    But I'm really tired of this "open letter from dad" anonymous bullpuckie. This letter, like others, reads of pathetic storytelling. And as an open gay male, such letters detract from the real victories.

    Now allow me this a bit of stupidity in observations of why I read this letter as fake... because let's face it, reality *IS* reality... -and REALLY think hard before you respond:

    #1 Doctor tells you your child may have led poisoning - and you take a year to get your child's bloodwork done!?

    [And, before you even left your doctor's appointment, originally where the blood test was ordered, you made a follow-up appointment. I'm pretty sure the receptionist made sure of that. NOTE: I will excuse the fact that your pediatrician didn't automatically have the nurse/phlebotomist take the blood at that time. Lead poisoning *is* pretty serious stuff, after all... But with all that being said...]

    #2 You get the bloodwork done a year later? The doctor's order for such tests would have been cancelled by that time. and/or

    #3 You get your, now, 4 year old's bloodwork done outside the site your child's/pediatric doctor's office, hence an adult clinic where blood is drawn?

    How would I come up with that conclusion? There's CNN playing on a TV.

    #4. If you were at ANY location where children get their blood drawn, CNN is not playing on a TV, cartoons are playing.

    #5. just at about 3 years of age, a child's development is finally able to understand complex instructions ["Would you please get the apple and put it into the basket".] Yes - children are fast learners... but I'm finding it very hard to believe that this 4 year old has now jumped to fully understanding the concepts of sexuality to ask about why one of his best friends has 2 mommies. This would now introduce into the picture that this 4 year old has a best friend, presuming the same age, that ALSO understands full sexuality concepts where it was communicated between the two at some time. And on that note: IF it is granted that it is a fully understood concept between both children involved, I'm confident that the child (the one addressed in this letter), would have blatantly and outright asked about it of his best friend... note: children are a bit blunt around that age in their questioning.

    God love children... But stop making them the unwitting of propoganda. We have MANY successes to celebrate, with many more "fights" for future successes to win and celebrate. BUT - STOP WITH THE PROPOGANDA!

    y 7 year old asked me why his uncle liked men I told him some men love men some women love women but thats what's beautiful about love. Its not controlled its felt. My son said "makes scense" and left it at that. Dont underestimate kids sometimes a simple explaination is more than trying to break it down. Who cares if this propaganda and you don't know if it is or not. Many parents have to answer tough questions but they answer them.

    It says they were testing because the doctor was concerned about the levels of lead in the son's body. There could be MANY reasons for that. To assume it is lead poisoning is moronic. Sorry, but read before you comment, because you called it anonymous when it's not as well. You just formulated an opinion and went on a tirade without actually reading.

    I have no intention of taking your entire comment on just the issues that I feel I can address. You said this letter was anon..well if you read the beginning the authors name is Brian Gresko..it states that plainly. There are adult programs playing in ped office...there are always adults there. In many the TV has adult programs and there are reading material and toys for the kids. And lastly there was no mention of sexuality in the childs question...just plain old why are there 2 mommies...and 4 year olds has besties and that is an absolutely viable question for even younger kids. You put the sexual aspect on the question...not the boy. I am not really arguing with your statement just pointing out what my experiences have shown me that differ in what you express. As others....I'm just saying.
