I'm not a big statement maker when it comes to sharing how I feel about sensitive and potentially contentious topics of conversation, but these last few weeks have been doozies for me when it comes to the issues shown above. I won't go into too many details, but let me just say that the utter hatred and warped viewpoints that come spewing out of some people's mouths is nothing short of heart breaking to me. I don't understand it. I've never understood it. I woke up this morning to a big cherry on top when I discovered a comment on my most recent post which included a short tutorial on how to create a carnation arrangement by the fabulous Eddie Ross. It not only tried to cut me down for needing to explain to people how to make such a "ridiculously simple" idea but that I would include such a "flaming f*##*t" in my blog surely will send you to Hell". Yep. He/she sure did...and of course didn't have the nerve to leave a name or email address.
So, here's the deal people...while I can't control people's viewpoints, I can control how I respond to them and who I will allow to leave comments on this blog. Any racist, sexist or homophobic comments will not now or ever be welcome here.
Please respect one another.
