Worse was the pain of having a woman who thinks she’s progressive, who counts herself as loving and kind, tell me (with no apparent consciousness of how her words would wound me) tell me right here on Medium that she was counseling her “gay friends” not to leave the Church. I had to stuff a dish towel in my mouth. That’s how horrified and angry her callousness made me.

How can people be so evil? I don’t get it. I can’t wrap my mind around it.

I’m tagging her here, because I want her to try to understand how much anguish she put me through today.
