    who defended Portland and said her firing was a witch hunt by those possessed by Satan. I went ballistic and that was the final straw for me and my sister...with this bigoted woman.

      brains around the most unbelievable, disgusting ideas it is hard not to wonder what was missing from their upbringing.  I always come back to the ones who were raised by parents involved in a religious sect that stressed the sin part and left out non judgmental love most of the time.

      Heavily supported by the large selection of books on the subject.  

      The high school basketball coach is apparently of the same mentality. Too bad the NCAA doesn't do high school. An open letter of discouragement might not change that coach much, could deter others.

        Evangelical so she hears most of this crap from other church members or her pastor.

        My parents told me that this woman will believe anything and sheis easily swayed.  As long as my parent were alive, they could sit her down and confront her about her bigotry.  But now that they are gone, she leans on her Fundy friends and she is back to being totally nuts again.
