Our newest friend, Laura, who apparently FOUND my blog while looking for something else (it happens a LOT), wrote:
“GROW UP Cambre’s Mom, noone cares that you are such a great mom that you stood up to someone who didn’t respect your boundaries while trying to be kind.
I have a feeling you are quick to hate other people who are not like-minded as well. That’s too bad for you.”
Laura, Laura, Laura. I DON’T hate anyone, really. Well, I sorta dislike that one pyscho dance mom who thinks her daughter is the only good dancer on her team, and who bitches about other kids dancing NEXT to her daughter who aren’t as good. Actually, I dislike her a lot. There’s a word for no one dancing but YOUR DAUGHTER. It’s called SOLO. Take her and be gone. Solos are done alone. (It should be noted here that her daughter is SIX! No one is that good at six. Can you see her in a few years?)
Her, I don’t like much. The rest of the world, I mostly like.
That doesn’t mean I have to accept the lack of respect for MY BOUNDARIES.
Laura is taking exception to an OLD post, that received a couple other FAIRLY nasty responses from Mormons in the comments. I must have pushed some buttons with this one, which is okay, because it pushed my buttons, too.
Apparently, Laura thinks I should have just allowed the primary president to do whatever she wanted.
Can we turn the tables here?
1. I show up at Laura’s house (she doesn’t know me, has never met me or seen me, and neither has her daughter met me or seen me).
2. I do not introduce myself, but ask for her daughter.
3. When questioned about who I am, I identify myself as the BUSY BEE president. I do not, however, give my name.
4. When further questioned about my intent, I tell her that I want to invite her daughter to come to my church, because I certainly don’t want her daughter to feel left out.
5. Once she assures me that her daughter will not feel left out, and in fact, really had no idea things were going on that she was not included in, I proceed to get offended and huffy, because as the BUSY BEE PRESIDENT it is my job to make sure all the young children in the ward boundaries, whether they are MORMON OR NOT, get their dose of indoctrination.
Can you consider that, Laura? Don’t tell me to grow up. YOU GROW up, or at least look outside your window past your narrow view of life. Some Mormons believe so strongly in their “truth” that they don’t give a second thought to trampling all over someone else’s beliefs, values, or rights.
You, apparently, are one of those. You are also so narrowminded that you cannot understand that refusing to let you TRAMPLE on my beliefs does not equate itself to hate. I do not hate you. I did not just write YOU a hatemail. Nope. That was you.
Next you’ll probably tell me to “drop dead” because you cannot adequately respond to MY response without getting ugly.
That’s okay. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.
Take YOUR hate, and put it where the sun don’t shine. I have neither the time or the energy to deal with the likes of you. However, you do make for good fodder on my blog. For that, I thank you.
Just a note: You are not doing your church a favor with your defense. People like you would best serve the Mormon Church by sewing their mouths shut.
