Lesbian – I’m giving you cancer

Imagine battling with cancer and getting an obnoxious, unChristian  letter telling you that God gave it to you for being a lesbian.

Una Mullally, writes for the Irish Times and received this letter that began: “I was so sorry to hear about your cancer but maybe it is the will of God.”
The writer went on to say that he/she feels like the YES side of the upcoming Irish referendum is bullying Catholics and changing the definition of family.   There was no indication that stating God  giving the writer cancer was a form of bullying – not to mention extreme unkindess – and un-Christ like.

Una Responds

‘I don’t give a damn if some bigot hates me, but next time a No campaigner talks about being “bullied,” this is what I’m putting up with.’

Ireland is expected to become the first country to legalize gay marriage by popular vote on Friday and Mullally is one of the most vocal Yes campaigners.

The Bigoted Writer

The writer of the letter accused Una of ‘relentlessly pushing the twisted idea of gay marriage which would destroy the family.’

‘My advice is to accept that you are both homosexual and not very pretty, as there are worse fates; you might be black for instance,‘ they wrote. ‘Frankly if I looked like you I would plead with the editor not to publish my photo.’    (So God does not like black people? paula)

Mullally said that it was not even the worst letter she had received: ‘There’s other stuff I wouldn’t even put on Twitter because it’s so disgusting.’

She added that the person had signed their name but it would be unfair to put it online.

‘Rise above, innit,’ she said.

Read the full letter below:

‘I was so sorry to hear about your cancer but maybe it is the will of God.

‘After all you have been relentlessly pushing the twisted idea of gay marriage which would destroy the family as we know it and ruin the lives of generations of innocent children victimized by the narcissism of their “parents.”

‘Imagine kids going to their first day of school accompanied by their two mammys or two daddys.

‘And how do two gays have children in the first place, if not by artificial means that make a mockery of natural relationships?

‘My advice is to accept that you are both homosexual and not very pretty, as there are worse fates; you might be black for instance.

‘And stop preaching to people who may have been around a lot longer than you and have more common sense in their little finger than you have in that poor muddled ugly head of yours. Frankly if I looked like you I would plead with the editor not to publish my photo.’

paula’s comment

So not only is this person homophobic, but a racist as well.  It is hard to comprehend how they can reconcile these failings with Christianity.
