Nice job on the letter. However, I do like the "edit" that Dash did. I think it flows better for some reason, Nothing against you personally. I dont know if I agree with Z. I do see the points that she made. However, I do think that all that was said is interconnected. I do agree that the letter shouldnt come across as "attacking" Dobson, as much as most all of us would love to. We cant stoop to his level. We MUST stand on the truth. something that Dobson refuses to do. But we must do in a non attacking (that sounds dumb) way.
I would actually sit down and write and editorial to the newspaper also. They may or may not publish it, but I think it would be a good idea. As others have said, I would send copies of the letter to everyone that you can think of. If you can get a "copy" of the segment, I would try to get it up on You Tube and send the links along with the letters. These things must be brought to the publics attention. People need to know and understand that every word out of Dobsons mouth isnt gold. That it is tainted with hatred and bigotry as well as fear. I have been contemplating writing an editorial concerning Dobson and some of the things that he has been saying about the GLBT community. Basically a public letter to him telling him to prove what he is saying is true. I just dont know how to do it right now without filling it with the anger I have for the man. My father has, or did have at one time, all the addresses of the major newspapers in the US. Once I get it done I want to send it to each and every one. What they will do with it is up to them. Unfortunately, I dont see it getting published unless the paper wants to go up against the power hungry giant known as Dr James Dobson.
If I do write it I would appreciate the same critiquing of it to help me refine it.
Anywho, great job and I would use some, if not all, of the edits that Dash put in there. Kudos to you both, first for the time and second for the courage to speak out against the wrongs. Good luck!!!
