Jeanine Lawson is the lady who represents my district on the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, and I am proud to have her there. She is a lady. She is smart. She is competent, and she is down to earth. She takes what she believes seriously. She takes her work seriously, but she does not take herself too seriously. She obviously cares about her family, friends and neighbors.
So when I heard the following on WMAL, I just rolled my eyes heavenward.
WASHINGTON (WMAL) – Two Democratic mothers blasted a Republican member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors at a meeting Tuesday.
Evelyn and Heidi BruMar, of Gainesville, said their 15-year-old daughter was handing out sample ballots at Gainesville Middle School on election day when supervisor Jeanine Lawson (R-Brentsville) introduced herself to the teen. Their daughter told Lawson she had lesbian mothers and one of her moms didn’t like her. According to the moms, Lawson responded that every child deserves a mom and dad in a Biblical sense.
“When did it become acceptable for a woman who holds elected office to bully a child?” Heidi told the board during public comment at Tuesday’s meeting.
Evelyn said Lawson took advantage of her daughter and called Lawson’s behavior “inappropriate, unacceptable and unwelcome.” (continued here)
Merely expressing a differing opinion to a 15-year-old who brings up the subject is now bullying? If a 15-year-old child is not ready to hear someone express a differing opinion, why do her “parents” have her handing out campaign literature outside the polls? Obviously the lesbian couple is trying to use the rules of the Politically Correct to shame and silence Lawson. That is bullying.
During the last election, Lawson campaigned for the reelection of Del. Bob Marshall. This story, Republican Lawmaker Tells Daughter Of Lesbian Couple She “Deserves” A Father (visit at your own risk) posted on a self-described queer news and culture website, indicates why that would make Lawson unpopular with some people.
What is the real issue? Our country is highly divided. There is a movement afoot to replace traditional American values with values that more appropriately belong in the gutter. Unfortunately, we have almost already lost this culture war. So for all practical purposes we are experiencing a return to paganism among much of our population. Yet most of these pagans either do not know or will not admit that that is where their supposedly “new age” values come from.
Whereas Christians will tolerate disagreement, in their outrageous pride, pagans will not. They will use any pathetic excuse to silence disagreement, and here we have an obvious example. Ask yourself this question. Do lesbians form “couples” for the sake of children, or do they just use “their child” as an excuse to bully and silence people who disapprove of same-sex “marriage”?
Note that Supervisor criticized for comments to daughter of lesbian couple (insidenova.com) provides another report on the story.
