Keep brought this to my attention, I urge everyone to contact Gov. Don Siegelman about the issue. Thing like this never fail to piss me off.....

 

 

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW

 

 

Gov. Don Siegelman of Alabama, recently made the following statement at a press conference:

 

"I don't think guys ought to be wearing earrings. I think kids

who put metal in their tongues are idiots. Parents ought to be

there talking to their kids and saying, 'You know what kind of

fool you look like with an earring? If God had wanted you to

wear earrings, he'd have made you a girl."

 

Unbelievable.

 

This was in reference to an eight year old boy recently expelled

from school for wearing an earring. For more information on that,

please

visit http://www.msnbc.com/local/wvtm/NBCU5JOINQC.asp

 

Let me STRONGLY urge everyone to contact the governors office or even

call in a complaint to him at 334-242-7100. This is not only a MASSIVE

violation of the boy's civil rights (there is no ban on girls wearing

earrings), but is also a malicious hate crime perpetrated on us by the

state. It is an act that CAN NOT go unchecked.

 

A civil (not insulting) snailmail letter is the most effective method.

It can be sent to him at:

Governor Don Siegelman

State Capitol

Room N-104

600 Dexter Avenue

Montgomery, AL 36130

 

Alternately, he can be contacted via email at http://www.governor.state.al.us/office/mai...in-contact.html

 

Following this email is a copy of the letter that I sent him, and then

a copy of the letter another person sent. Feel free to use these to

help you write your own letter.

Dear Gov. Siegelman,

 

I was shocked and dismayed to hear your recent statements that men

should not wear earrings, and that "If God had wanted boys to wear

earrings, he would have made them girls." Perhaps being a boy you

were not aware of this, but God didn't actually create girls with pierced ears either. God also doesn't cut either girls or boys hair,

and God doesn't create boys circumcised. These are decisions that we

have made as people. If you'd like to follow God's intentions for

us, perhaps you need to institute laws requiring boys to be pierced

-- after all, this was the norm in Biblical times for men. Of course

that would be ridiculous though; it is essential in a free society

that people have the right to make these decisions for themselves.

 

I was extremely concerned to hear you say that people with

piercings are "stupid" and look like "fools". Perhaps you are

unaware of God's teachings, and prefer to simply use his name to

project your own hatred, but even the casual Christian must be

aware of Matthew 7:1. I am truly outraged at the hatred you project

in your support of expelling a child simply for an aesthetic

expression that hurt no one. I have to wonder what message this

sends to the children of Alabama. I can certainly tell you that

the message it's sending me about Alabama is not a good one.

 

If this was an argument based upon safety or concern for quality

education we might find common ground even as we disagreed.

However, both the malice in your words and the fact that you

applied them only to boys betray the fact that this is a

projection of your personal feelings. While you have a right to

your feelings, as a public servant you do not have the right to

apply your misguided and fundamentally blasphemous interpretation

of the Bible to others, and certainly not in schools. It is an

abuse of your power and it terrifies me that a "free society"

could treat a child in this way.

 

I hereby demand that you allow Dustin Weaver to return to school

with his body as he and his parents desire. In addition, I demand

a public apology for your hurtful words.

 

Sincerely,

Rev. Shannon Larratt

Dear Gov. Siegelman,

 

I am writing in reference to the comments you made in the press

conference regarding the young boy wearing earings to school:

"I don't think guys ought to be wearing earrings. I think kids

who put metal in their tongues are idiots. Parents ought to be

there talking to their kids and saying, 'You know what kind of

fool you look like with an earring? If God had wanted you to wear earrings, he'd have made you a girl."

 

Being a member of the Armed forces I realize that I personally

cannot have my ears pierced for reasons such as health and because

I represent the United States of America.But for you to make a

comment like that makes me wonder why I would give my life to

protect the rights of our Great Nation.

 

You, yourself wear glasses, So if someone told you that "God must

have wanted you to have vision problems" then you would think that

they were Crazy and yet you make a similar comment about males wearing earings

 

So far I have given four solid years of my young adulthood to

hopefully help our nation live free.I spent seven months in Bosnia

seeing the horrors of the war, starving children,mass graves,

churches and mosques where hundreds of women and children were

slaughtered and I return home only to hear the Governor of one

of our great FREE states refered to the Future leaders of America

and the children of his voters as "Idiots" and "fools".

 

Someday these same children WILL be the ones on the front lines

who protect your rights and values on a future battlefield! It

makes it so much harder to protect this countries rights when

they are being violated from within.

 

Sincerly Yours

I decided that this was the best way for me to get the word out on this, as I have no friends to actually tell.
