    believe exactly what she said in the article on Huffington post.  

    My diary is not about politics per say, my diary is about moving forward and finding some peace during the holidays.  

    I'm not here to defend anyone, I wrote this diary out of compassion and hope, that perhaps some peace would come into the hearts of many, that are literally torturing themselves with all of this acrimony. I know what it feels like to roll myself up into a little ball of hate and rage, and it took me a long time to figure out, the only person I was hurting was myself.

    I hope that peace and unity will prevail for all, and if Melissa feels that way, I don't think it's impossible not to be open and honest to move forward.

      at Christmas, but he's going to have to get that by resolving his irrational feelings toward gay people.
      Meanwhile, I will speak my peace, which will never come without justice.

      prevail for all too.

      I'd especially love it for the gays being caught in the government crackdown in Uganda on gays - where they are subject to life in prison.

      A small move in that direction would be a public statement by Warren that he opposes that crackdown - since he has in the past supported it and state that "homosexuality is not a civil right".

      Where you see Melissa as being someone hopeful, I see her as someone who has been taken in by a professional con man ( which is, after all, his profession).

      Public statements by Warren could certainly clarify which of us is correct, but statements by Melissa only tend to show her gullibility.

      ... for Warren, but that's because she's naive and has swallowed his carefully cultivated, manipulative "warmth" act hook, line & sinker.

      When she's drowning mid-river, I will remind her that many GLBTI folk tried to warn her that Warren is - and always was - a snake.

      "Richie Rick" Warren: first, the inauguration & now the MLK Commemorative service. Pattern, maybe? But what do I know, I'm just an angry faggot drama queen!

        I've been thinking about this song ever since I read Melissa's HuffPo blog.

          Plus, I've been bitten by more than one evangelical snake and have done verbal / digital battle with scores more, so I know what sort of man Warren is.
