‘By All Means, Leave’: The Amazingly Blunt Response State Rep. Gave a Citizen
Blaze ^ | Feb 24,2013 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 02/26/2013 8:48:11 AM PST by Baynative

Get out of here.

That was one Wyoming state representative’s message to a resident who contacted him recently stating her opposition to a bill that would have allowed people with concealed carry permits to carry guns in public schools, colleges and sporting events.

Rev. Audette Fulbright had emailed all state legislators, including Republican Rep. Hans Hunt, earlier this month to say she and her husband had just moved to Wyoming and were “seriously reconsidering” their decision amid the proposed expansion of gun laws.

“Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation,” Fulbright wrote. “To expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.”

Fulbright also said she was concerned about “the profoundly serious dangers of fracking” and said the question of whether to leave was “wrenching to all of us.”

“I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking,” she wrote.

Rep. Hans Hunt’s response? “By all means, leave.”

It is comforting to know that there are younger patriots who still believe in and stand up for America's heritage of self determination and free enterprise.

One serious reason why denominations are dying in America is their trusting the pastorate to ignorant, dull-witted mediocrities like this "reverend."

Generations ago, the town preacher was likely the most educated person there, and was accorded due respect. Today, this woman might be the most poorly educated person in her church.

Well said, Rep. Hunt! Better to have such idiots leave now before they over-run your state.

Though the headline might be somewhat blunt, the context is more measured. He suggests that Wyoming's approach to governing is based in large part on limited government interferance. The new (liberal) immigrant is accustomed to more government control.....a government her liberal tendencies largely support. He was not out of line and made several excellent points.

Leftists are continually fleeing their fouled beds, seeking to take advantage of clean sheets. But as soon as they arrive, they start demanding a that the new bed incorporate bed wetting.

They have zero sense of cause and effect. In their world, everything the wish would happen is causal, and everything that does happen is incidental.

My parents used to attend a local church that went through 4 pastors before finally waking up and leaving.

Each of these ‘pastors’ had questionable qualifications at best and each left the church broke and nearly empty before leaving. The problem boiled down to a group of ‘church ladies’ that ran the show and hired only pastors who would preach what they wanted to hear.

So the shysters milked it and ran, while the parishioners left. New pastor, new promises, new flock history repeated.

These lib ‘pastors’ flourish because they want ‘their’ religion.’ Ok to be gay, a thief, whatever. So the lib ‘pastor’ gives them the ‘God’ they pay for.

Nice find. I was about to Google her name myself.

I have moved through an unquestioned, undifferentiated Southern Christianity, childishly explored Roman Catholicism and Judaism, took my turn as a fundamentalist atheist (or so I believed at the time), passionately explored earth-centered traditions (I was a 3rd degree Wiccan priestess), philosophically integrated Buddhism and Taoism into my worldview, seriously considered converting to Hinduism, and studied Islam as my secondary focus in seminary. In the end -and despite, over the years, seriously considering whether there might be another faith tradition that might be a better fit, by which, it turns out, I mean “easier to minister within,” – it does turn out that I am utterly and irretrievably a Unitarian Universalist.

The Unitarian "Church" is the preferred gathering place of homosexuals and others who pretend to be Christian but aren't. They are "utterly and irretrievably" left-wing. So it doesn't surprise me a bit that they evangelically endorse gun-grabbing.

Oh this Reverend is something!! Here are a couple snips from one of her "sermons"

But back to Gandhi. When I began seminary, I had been a practicing Wiccan priestess for a number of years. Indeed, at the time I was the North Carolina director of WARD, Witches Against Religious Discrimination. However, my involvement as a UU in the Charlotte congregation had taken me back to my own commitment to appreciating, affirming, and supporting religious diversity and exploration; as well as my calling to serve a diverse, rather than specific, community of spiritual seekers.

There's more to the story, but for the moment, I'll let it rest on a simple fact: I didn't become a UU Hindu, and I chose Islam as the non-Christian religion I would specialize in.

Here's an excerpt of a letter from State Rep. Hans Hunt (R-Wyoming) to his liberal constituent Rev. Audette Fullbright. Hunt was the youngest member of the Wyoming legislature when he was elected in 2010. LOVE this guy!

Pic of "The Reverend" Fullbright posted in #11. Link to her autobiographical essay is posted in #10.

Excerpt:

I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a “mass exodus” from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on “dangers” that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.

It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking...

-snip-

... So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.

Well Rev. Fulbright, you can always move to chicago or dc if you feel safer around disarmed citizens. Of course I would recommend body armor to protect against those imaginary bullets coming from banned guns that only the undocumented urban entrepreneurs use to liberate you from your ill gotten (worked for) gains. Let's see how that works out for you. As for us unenlightened knuckle draggers out here in red map flyover country, we'll do just fine packing heat to keep the potential criminal elements honest, and always guessing if they picked the wrong target.

This woman is the total package; she once was a 3d degree Wiccan priestest, and a “fundamentalist atheist”, and is now a “reverend” in the Unitarian Universalist “religion” (where reputedly they pray “to whom it may concern”).

Her Biblical knowledge can’t be much. If it were, it would be interesting to see if she could point out the Biblical justification for the ordination of women.

Never mind her current religious affiliation, why would anybody follow a person who celebrates her own record of an aimless lack of commitment? She’s never studied ANYTHING long enough to understand it fully. What is there to learn from her on any subject that one couldn’t gain by an hour on Wikipedia?

Yup. I posted this article yesterday and had a lot of feedback including a pic of her and her family. Kind of “goth” looking. Maybe this photo is from a “free mumia” fund raiser. Or was it “fry mumia”? I can’t say for sure. But gotta give some kudos to Rep. Hunt for calling her out. Hell, I might even chip in for her to move as long as it isn’t to Nevada.

Was having a conversation with a liberal about the large soda ban in New York. He said that he relies on goverment limits to keep his temptations in check.
“More pie?”
“No thanks. That would be illegal.”
He would like more mandated limits on everyone so he doesn’t have to use any self control.

Reminds me of an old friend whose parents were active members of a large Catholic church in northern NJ. That is, until one Sunday the priest devoted the entire service to sing the praises of the Sandanistas, and other commie activities in Central and South America.

"The Unitarian "Church" is the preferred gathering place of homosexuals and others who pretend to be Christian but aren't. They are "utterly and irretrievably" left-wing."

Obama's grandparents and mother chose to join a Unitarian "Church" in Washington state - after they moved to Mercer Island specifically so their daughter could study at a commie staffed high school.

When Barrack was living with those grandparents in Hawaii, they chose to join another Unitarian "Church" - that acted as a hideout for Vietnam war draft-dodgers/deserters.

I don't care what religion she is. If she's right, she's right.
Radical, extremist Muslims spoke out against homos, but they were right, too.
That doesn't mean these people are right about everything, or anything else for that matter, but credit has to be given where credit is due.

This is what you get when you have women “ministers”. God forbids it so it just means the denomination doesn’t care about anything God says. They make it up as they go along and they spout the last Democrat talking point.

The author of a recent piece said in response to this story that it is amazing how much energy people will burn up in opposition to the values of where they live, finally move on, and spend even more energy trying to convert the new home into the one they just left. Just goes to show that job or no, Americans have entirely too much time on their hands.

Seriously, she would feel right at home in The People's Socialist Republik of Vermont. She moved to Wyoming, so I assume she likes ice and snow...

Kind of sad to learn that there are Unitarian Universalist "churches" in a good Red State like Wyoming...

Great action from an elected representative who surfed into a state office on the Tea Party wave of 2010.

Same old story, liberals moving into a state with conservative values and then try to change it into where they came from.

Good for you State Rep. Hans Hunt (R-Wyoming)!

I had just opened this thread, and then checked my pings, nutmeg, and saw you pinged me to this.
