Dear Deluded Greg...

This is a comment I received on my post about Abortion and South Dakota:

"One day you're going to have to pick a side. Want to be parents are waiting for kids end of story. What I'm talking about, is are you doing what you do for you or for God. Stop crying to your girl buddies about unfairness. Start trying to make things right in your state like a real warrior. Help people. It's not all about you."

Okay--we'll break this down for ya one by one, Greg, as it seems you didn't really read the post, you just read into it what you wanted to hear...

1. "Pick a side": Was I not clear enough? I am pro-choice. Always have been, always will be...

2. "Parents are waiting for kids end of story": We'll ignore your atrocious lack of punctuation there, and simply say, Huh? No duh, people are waiting for kids... what's a shame is that the how many millions of kids in the foster system AREN'T being adopted because they aren't 1. White, 2. Girls, 3. Under the age of six months. So instead of waiting for the next poster Gerber Baby to come through, adopt a kid already in need.

3. "are you doing what you do for you or for God": I don't do anything for God.

4. "Stop crying to your girl buddies about unfairness": I'm sorry, did that post come across as crying? It was actually supposed to be read with incredulity and amazement at idiocy. Sorry if you couldn't tell. I'll try to be more clear in the future... and my "girl buddies"? Stereotype much? I'm sure god would be real pleased with your sense of "compassionate conservatism"...

5. "Start trying to make things right in your state like a real warrior": Actually, I volunteer quite a lot of my time and money to causes I care about, whether that be for the environment, animals, shelters, veterans, anti-Republican, and anti-Christian groups... and this "real warrior" measurement you are using, do you hold yourself up to it? How are you "helping others" besides poisoning their lives with the "gospel"?

6. "Help people.": Dude, I help more people than I could even begin to count. Not because I expect something, not looking for rewards, but because it is the decent, humane thing to do. I lost my last partner because my heart was bigger than his. My current partner of seven years, though, is just as wonderful and helpful to his fellow man as anyone could ask... Get to know me instead of "assuming" things, cause it makes you look like an ass....

7. "It's not all about you.": Did I imply it was? Arguing for the right that women should be able to choose is about me how, exactly? And, I hate to burst your bubble, even though I know it ain't about me 99% of the time, I'll make sure to never, after this post, to make it about you again. Have a nice life.

"Ooooooh, no you didn't!" (In my head I said that like a Jerry Springer audience member, so go with that.)

I have no idea what Greg's comment was even saying. You clearly defined your stance and why you feel the way you do.

Just say no to sex with pro-lifers!

Dear Greg,

Jason knows its not all about him. Why? Because Jason's been to my blog and knows for a fact that its all about me.

If you'd been to my blog, Greg, you'd know its all about me too. Now get your hands off my uterus and go wrestle an angel on the banks of the Jordan or something useful and Christian like that. You know, help people. Might want see about getting that Rapture thing started, so you will all go away and we can be rid of the Christians once and for all.

Buh-bye, Greg. Pleasure doing bidness with you....

Sorry, Jason, but I felt that Greg needed a double-upside-the-head-smackdown.
