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

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.

Good answer! Hope this is a sign of more serious resistance to the ignorance of the left!

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.

Today, this woman might be the most poorly educated person in her church.

And not just about the world in general. What do you bet her Biblical knowledge is equal to her general knowledge?

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.

Oh barf... I hope "The Reverend" Fullbright does the good people of Wyoming a big favor and MOVES TO ANOTHER STATE.

She'd feel right at home in the People's Socialist Republik of Vermont...

Darn! Ya beat me to it! She is a mixed up mess! Typical Liberal. The bad thing is that if she leaves Wyoming, she will probably end up in Boulder, Colorado. I just wrote her to express how welcome she might be in our State.
