It is specifically my intention that this thread AVOID that questions because then there would hardly be any reason for it. We are all in agreement with the overwhelming majority of her points of view.
Sooo...please don't try to change the subject.
One simple questions:
Would you want your daughter acting the way she does? Yes or no?
This isn't a trial and you, sir, are no prosecutor, but to ally your fears about how I raised my children let me answer you this way.
My girls, all 3 of them, were raised to speak their minds about any subject, especially on political motives and are fiercely American. The oldest ones question and comment in a polite and direct fashion, but not letting any politician or public figure get away with any back-handed defelction of the issue. They have done this in front of committees from both sides of the state government. They have done this admirably well in their fairly young ages of 27 and 26. What the girls do with their PRIVATE life is none of my business, no matter if I agree or disagree with it, as Ann's private life is NONE of your business.
Intelligent? Yes. Would I want a daughter that is a lock step Darwinist, afraid to apply common sense for fear of being figuratively stoned in the public square? NO.
I'm too worried about having a son who thinks like you to worry about my daughter.
