Hey, Darren Stehle.

Nice attempt to engage this person, but probably not worth it. I’ve blocked her, considering that her replies show her to be a person who wishes to use the rhetoric of “freedom” to justify homophobic bigotry.

All she has to say is that it’s important to her that people be free to stigmatize us and discriminate against us.

She’s just a hopeless hater.

I don’t have the time or the energy to allow that sort of evil into my thinking or my spirit.

I should have been creative yesterday afternoon, but I wasted my time dealing with her venom and hatred instead.

Learned my lesson.

There’s no reasoning with bigots like her.

You can’t reason a person out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into.

I learned my lesson. More liberal use of the block button.
